Hi,

My neighbor lent me her Florian ratchet pruners, but I cannot find any to buy. The company doesn't respond to emails, and may be out of business. Does anyone know where to buy these?

Thank you.

Sorry, I don't know where to purchase.

I bought 2 Florian loppers, a large and small capacity, 30 years ago at the OR State Fair. Immediately when arriving home looked at my purchase and thought   'gah', I wasn't thinking about blade design- these were anvil style loppers and I was getting the idea that bypass style was more to be appreciated for the majority of pruning.  The big Florian quickly became relegated to cutting pruned wood into fire fuel (I had tweaked it early by trying to exceed capacity, so needed to be attentive to angles of bite). Might be some bodies good fortune to translate that ratcheting mechanism into a bypass design.

Harbor Freight sells a ratchet pruner.   I have a pair that I am less than wild about.

Visit your nearest Harbor Freight.  Some folks like the pruners, some don't.

Thank you.  

The blog entries on their website end in October of '17. Found imbedded in an associated product video on that website  this #800.275.3618  Good luck.
