I purchased a pair of Fiskars all-purpose scissors several years ago when the pair of scissors I owned at the time somehow "disappeared". I should mention that at that time I shared a home with my husband, my teenage twin daughters, and his three teenage children. So, the mystery of the disappearing scissors really wasn't much of a mystery. Anyhow...
The purchase of Fiskars all-purpose scissors ended up being quite a wise one. I've become quite attached to these scissors simply due to the fact that they are so sharp and have retained that sharpmess regardless of the abuse I've put them through.
This pair of Fiskars all-purpose scissors spend the majority of the time at the desk in my office. However, they have been used for many purposes. This pair of scissors have been used to cut paper, plastic, cardboard, string, hair, and a myriad of other materials. These scissors have remained sharp, without having been sharpened, throughout this abuse.
Fiskars produces a good, sharp, reliable pair of all-purpose scissors. I recommend this brand highly.
