I received these free as a perk a couple years ago with an order I placed. I use them as a back up for my Felco 13's. I keep them on my mower in case I need em. I'd say comparible to a Felco 2. I haven't had any issues so far with moderate use.
Purchased for product quality and reliability. Used for RITree Council Tree Steward Education class held Spring and Fall of every year. Used in our saturday final field workshop class with hands on tree pruning.
I gave them as a gift. The person who received them really likes them.
We have used Felco for many year, but based on the claims made by A.M. Leonard, and the lower price, we decided to give the Leonard pruners a try. My crew didn't prefer them - felt that the blades were not as tough or sharp. We returned them and purchased Felcos instead.
Matches up well with any pruners I've used, but at less than half the price
