Apart from a bit of worn plastic coating on the grips they are in great condition and still cut perfectly. Very occasionally I dismantle them (it?) and clean everything, sharpen the edge with emery paper, and reassemble with olive oil as lube to avoid contaminating plants.
Now I am temptaterated to post pics of beautiful woodworking tools I have, along with verbose and flowing praise for their many fine attributes and capabilities.
But you'd all get bored. Still .............
PS The ladywife has a pair o' them Felcos and does wax-lyrical about them from time to time.
