But an alert reader who is handy with the Google skills discovered a fantastic deal over at the Harry Epstein company. The Bahcos are only $12 right now! Shipping varies depending on your location, but I bought four pair of Bahco pruners (yep, I’m hiring) as well as a hedging shear, and the shipping was only $12 for the lot of it.
This same alert reader also let me know that since he has a distaste of buying things from China, he checked out the manufacturing locations of Bahcos and found they’re made in Sweden and France.
If you’ve been on the fence about trying some Bahcos, or just want to stock up so you and your partner aren’t always arguing over who gets to use the “good” pruners, this would be an opportune time. I use the medium size PG-M2 (middle, above photo), and I normally wear a small glove.
