Bargain secateurs

Been using several pairs of Bulldog anvil secateurs bought from Toolstation £15 .75 Inc vat for the last week.  What a bargain Japanese steel, ergonomic and light seem to be staying sharp despite abuse, we all think they are as good as Felco if not better,  bypass also available.  If you're looking for secateurs you won't buy better.

    Gonna pick myself a pair or two up in the morning Peter, i love my felcos but there's no chance I'd let anyone else loose on them and that is a situation that crops up occasionally so these sound perfect. Thanks Peter

    Great idea for neglectful staff. No way would I give up my felcos, they be part of me.

  • I actually find the £4.99 ones that places like Pouindshop etc sometimes sell are remarkably good + not to bothered when they get lost. 

  • Bulldog tools are normally very good. Made in England too if it makes you feel better about global footprint. I think I'll order a pair so it doesnt hurt as much when I lose the next ones!

    • Japanese Steel but made in england ?... would imagine the manufacturing process creates more foot print than the transportation irregardless of where they are actually made lol

    • We've used several pairs now for over 3 weeks and our initial impressions that they were good have been correct and upgraded to fantastic! They feel like a natural extension to your hand, are effortless to use and if anything including hard mature wood fits in between the blades they will cut. It does say the design is patented on them. Highly recommended and a bargain at £15.75
