If your are left handed and use secateurs with any regularities spoil yourself.
You won’t be disappointed.

It is hard to choose which model you want, so before shelling out the not inconsiderable sum for these beasts I suggest you visit the Felco World web site which details the 20 models available (including for left-handers), then purchase here, where it is cheaper. It does not provide side by side comparisons, so you have to wade through a bit, but there is lots of information there.
The web site also lets you order parts and has good drawings. So if you lose the maintenance and parts list which is on the inside fold of the backing card of your secateurs, you can get it there. There are also how-to videos.
They are clearly very well made and the parts availability and dismantling-capability are big pluses for me to justify the price.
It is worth a word about the “rolling action” of the lower handle which this model has (and some others such as the Compact Deluxe). A number of secateurs have this now and I read some reviews where people really hate it. I can see why as the effect is odd. What happens is that as you squeeze the outer handle rolls up your fingers. This has the effect of moving the pressure point so is a big advantage if you are doing a lot of cutting and your hands get tired. My wife has arthritis and so I thought this would suit her, but she also very often rejects new things so I was not sure; to her own surprise she said that within a few minutes she’d simply forgotten about this feature, just taking it for granted. However she did find she dropped them a few times, but thinks that will stop once she has got more used to them.
Of course you don’t have to have this feature, which is on two models only at present (look for the thicker lower handle.
Performance: well they cut like a dream – as would cheap ones brand new. But they do seem a cut above (sorry!) any of the many other supposedly quality brands I’ve owned over the years.
When they are fully open they are quite wide for my hands (I would say I have medium hands for a woman). There's no way to reduce the span of them but as they are so light and the spring is quite soft it's not as much of an issue as (say) a heavier pair of pruners would be. They don't make my hands ache, they just take a bit of effort to get the right grip.
The handles aren't the usual heavy duty ones found on felco pruners - they are plastic not coated metal - but this shaves off the weight and makes them very nimble. They do seem sturdy despite their light weight.
These are NOT heavy duty secateurs, like the Felco Model 7, which I have for general pruning etc, so please don't think of them as that, although I do cut the fuchsias back with then but obviously not thick woody stems.
They are lightweight and have just plastic handles as opposed the the silicone handles on the secateurs.
They are still a good quality Felco product though and it also has an easy to operate 'blade lock' to make sure the jaws aren't open when not in use and they are very comfortable in use.
If you use them for the work they are intended for you definitely won't be disappointed.
First thing - is the item working - yes, indeed. Blades are fine, ultra sharp - do not think these are fake ones.
Why only two stars?
First, when you take these in right hand (I am right handed, but can do left too - np)they are not easy to operate. Problem become too apparent when you need to lock the snips. Hand slides naturally forward and thumb needs to be squeezed in order to loock. Not a big deal, but it could become "messy" and fingers can get under the blade. Because the blade is sharp - you will see, how unforgiving it is. I did not come to this, but such possibility exists. With my left hand I did not experience such problems.
Second - and this ruined all positive thoughts. I did some cuts and squeezed my bottom pillow of index finger between the handles (2x!). Reason for this could be handles themselves - they are curved and if you are doing heavy cuts (tool is not for heavy cuts I have to admit) hand slides naturally towards the blades.
I think this is the reason for model 300 to be called "economical".
I have to admit - I cut 1cm twigs, not apple or wine stalks, but your hand naturally will look for most ergonomical position when you will use snips or secateurs. Did they cut those twigs - no problemo at all, blades are doing the job. Would I be happy to work with these all day - definitely not.
I have to admit - maybe I holded them wrongly, maybe I simply could not understand what these are designed for, maybe I have to buy a holster for £20 and belt in order not to hold them into hand all the time. But I would suggest to look for more ergonomical options.
I bought 322 (hopefully chineese will not be so fast and make fake copies of this model jet) and will compare items.
