I have happily been using Felco loppers for 20 plus years. I found them long before I knew anything about Niwaki and Japanese tools!

In fact, I clearly remember reading a list of tool recommendations in Gardens Illustrated, by the garden designer Dan Pearson, which sang the praises of Felco loppers and likened pruning with them to slicing through soft butter with a knife. I was sold! If Dan liked them, then that's what I was going to buy.

Although I have now added Niwaki loppers to our gardening kits, my crew does still use Felcos as well. The design and cutting action is really different between the two of them - if you're not familiar with them, have a look at the pictures on our site, or stop by Gardener's Kit HQ to try them out in person and see which one suits you best.

The Felcos come in two lengths - 17" and 25". I really like the compact 17" model for pruning in tight spaces; the handles are short enough that they don't get tangled up in surrounding branches.
