Barnel B888 8-Inch Aluminum Straight Blade Garden Ratchet Hand Pruner
This is the most bang for the buck pruner on this list. The Barnel B888 8-Inch Aluminum Straight Blade Garden Ratchet Hand Pruner has a ratchet action that allows your hand to rest while keeping the cutting force directly on the item to be pruned. The ergonomic handle and cushioned inserts fit smaller hands well, the aluminum straight blade makes them light and comfortable to use, and they are relatively inexpensive for everything you get. They give you a 7/8-inch cutting width, and if there weren't any Felco pruners listed, these would be at the top of the heap.
