So what about the product? Well, my first impression is that the secateurs are sturdy, well-built and likely to last for many years (unlike the cheap-and-nasty £4.99 items that seem to proliferate in our UK garden centres).
The handles are comfortable and well-shaped.
The blade is sharp and precisely aligned.
A very comprehensive set of instructions is provided, showing you the various components, and how to dis-assemble them for maintenance or replacement. A small product-specific spanner is also provided for this purpose.
Overall, I'm very impressed. Since I have only just got these secateurs it is too early to be 100% certain, but I suspect this will turn out to be the best pair I have ever owned, and they will probably last me the rest of my lifetime. I can see why they are the choice of many professional horticulturalists.
Note: Although they arranged for the secateurs to be sent to me for review, Idealo is a price-comparison platform, not a shop, and it is not possible to order anything from them!
