Pruning Tools

People often ask me what secateurs I use for pruning as it often appears that I am cutting through branches easier than they expect.  In reality this is as much about what I use to sharpen the secateurs as the secateurs themselves.

Felco No 8 & Istor Sharpener

The excellent sharpening tool is a Swiss Istor which I use to sharpen my Felco No 8s.  Around Hitchin and Herts you can get the Felco’s in most good garden centres.  The Istor is a little more awkward – lakeland seems to be the best place.
