I love those shears, Janet--my mom has some and I'm very jealous. I still miss my favorite old Opinel folding knife with the beechwood handle I lost years ago. Never found a pocket knife that could replace it. I keep a couple of leatherman-type tools around in the car, RV, purse, etc.

I love my left-handed Felco pruners best of all, though, and their holster.

I just bought a cool gift for someone: a flashlight that you wind for a minute and it runs for 3-4 hours. Never needs a battery either. I was told by a guy in the tool department that he is in love with this, so I hope the recipient of this gift loves it, also.
