I want to buy some pruners for my sister so of course I have to find the best brand and then the best model. I need something not too expensive but good quality, preferably available in South Africa. She will need an all-round pruner for larger woody stems and small green stuff too.
I have found the following information;
Felco: most expensive, considered the best but other brands might challenge that.
Corona: rip-off Felco
Bahco: seems to be very good, possibly better than Felco
Fiskars: very good, cheaper than others but still good quality
So I was buying Felco but in trying to figure out which model I kept coming across anvil in all the descriptions and I want bypass. Do they make all their pruners anvil?
Then I looked at Fiskars but their stuff is so confusingly fancy I don't know where to begin.
We can only get Felco and we must get Fiskars because we get the orange scissors. Unless they are rip-off orange scissors. I might be able to get Bahco on Amazon though.
Any other brands? Any model suggestions?
