Felco itself states that this pruner sets the standard for high leverage and effortless pruning. It is identical to the Felco 7, except for the rotating handle. Light alloy handles are shaped to act as an extension of the forearm and the anvil blade handle is designed to prevent the pruner from sliding through your hand. Hollow-ground, this Swiss precision-hardened steel blade features a wire-cutting notch. The blades are set on dowel pins for easy maintenance and replacement. All of this and it's designed just for lefties. Length 8 1/4 inches (21cm) Weight 8.7oz (245g).
