Felco F-2 pruners are distinctive Swiss garden pruners with red rubber sleeves on the handles. They have die cast matte finish on all of the hardware apart from adjestment wheel and the sharpened edges. The closeness of the blades can be adjusted by means of a thumb wheel and the pruners can be locked safely closed with the incorporated ratchet mechanism.

The Felco 2 pruners or secateus were designed to fulfill the need for a more efficient pruner to support the growth in agricultural activity after the second world war. Keen gardeners and horticulturalists were soon to appreciate the quality of the Swiss made Felco pruners  making them a firm favorite for decades to come. The Felco 2 pruner was the successor to the first model incorporating some minor improvements only small refinements have been made since to the original highly functional pruner.

Felco 2 pruners are made at Les Geneveys-sur-Coffrane a small town in the watch making region of the Jura in Switzerland. After producing his first high quality pruners Félix Flisch purchased a factory previously used for watch making to satisfy increasing demand from within Switzerland, Europe and beyond.
