Garden tools, especially secateurs are coming along leaps and bounds. The best garden tool manufacturers have answered the demand for specific pruners aimed at users with differing needs including some fantastic pruners for small hands.
We now have secateurs for small hands and large. Secateurs designed specifically for left handed users etc. Whatever your requirement there is a model that will match your needs perfectly. All making the task of garden maintenance easier, fun and a more enjoyable experience.
So here we have put together a small list that we feel are the best secateurs for small hands currently available.
This Felco Essential secateur is their entry level model but is still far better than other pruners in this price range. The handle is made from an extremely tough composite material and the blade is manufactured from hardened steel.
As with all other Felco models all the parts on the Essential are replaceable with spares available from many vendors online. No more throwing out your secateurs when a spring breaks!
We have not tested this particular model but if the reviews are anything to go by this is an excellent pruner for small hands and competes with all the other top brand secateurs.
Simplicity has been at the forefront of design. Handle, blade, spring and catch. The blade is something else! Manufactured from the same steel used for Samurai swords, this will lengthen time between having to sharpen the blade and years of enjoyable use (plus you can brag about having Samurai secateurs)
Gardena 8905-20 Garden Secateurs
This is a good secateur for light and occasional use although if you need a secateur for shrub work one of the above may be a better option (if your budget allows). Coated blades make less likely to rust and comfortable handles.
This secateur features an adjustment the user can make to suit hand size “one size fits all” Soft and nicely shaped handles make this a comfortable tool to use.
This model is the Felco 160s (see top) big brother. Specifically designed for small hands the Felco 6 is a professional secateur that will last you a lifetime. They will cut through the toughest of plant material with ease and carry a lifetime warranty for manufacturers defects. As will all Felco models, all parts are available should something break.
