The high degree of comfort you will experience from these pruning shears comes from the exceptional ergonomics explicit in the FELCO design. The angled cutting head safely prevents the tool slipping in your hand, while ensuring that the FELCO 8 Elite effectively becomes a part of you - to deliver ease of use, comfort that is immediately evident, along with less likelihood of muscle fatigue early on in your pruning tasks. The compact and lightweight feel of the FELCO Elite is empowered with the black F-Tech coating. Reducing drastically friction between the blade and the counter-blade and the branch to cut, F-Tech coating provides also excellent resistance to corrosion and reduces sap and bacteria adherance on the blade. Designed for extended use, the FELCO Elite prioritizes user comfort. The leather-covered grips provide a comfortable and secure hold, reducing fatigue and muscle strain during prolonged pruning sessions. The ergonomic design ensures a perfect fit to hand contours and will mould to individual hand over time. Red stitching enhances the curves and echoes the iconic colour of FELCO handles. The thumb-catch allows a mid-opening setting, for faster smaller or faster cuts and thus improved productivity. Last but not least, a keyhole is featured on the lower aluminium handle, allowing to fit a lanyard in and keep the Elite at hand. Manufactured using 100% green energy and from 70% recycled aluminium and 95% recycled carbon steel, the FELCO Elite encompasses the values of FELCO to reduce its environmental impact, always providing solutions for durable and reparable pruning tools
