I need a new set of hand pruners. I have seen Felco, Corona along with Wolf Garten and Berger. Can anyone recommend the best for me?

I am in Daisy's corner!
Both hold an edge really well and both feel good in my hands.
I currently have three hand pruners because I keep putting them down and misplace them. I need to put alarms on them or something so I can find them with an app on my phone!!!

I'm also in the Fiskars corner. I have several and they are great!! I have long skinny hands and I find that skinny pruners hurt so having something that's big enough I can get a good grip on is nice.

Felcos are usually a lot more expensive because they really are better, and better quality all around. Any arborist will tell you the same. But it still may not be the one for you, since Felco may not make the style you prefer, or your frequency of use might not justify the price.

Fiskars Power Gear are the best. Rotating handle makes it so easy on your hands. Your hand doesn't wear out when using them.

I'd go Fiskars for typical home gardener. Who like me, leaves them all over the place and in the rain..
Plant it and they will come.

Sallyg, I have 4 pairs. I'd lose a pair, buy another, then find the lost ones. Also keep a backup pair. I'd be helpless and lost without them. Hilarious!
