I have tried scissors after scissors but none of them really cuts well the way I want to give my papers and craft stocks a clean cut like this Maped scissors. This is actually my daughter's scissors but since she is not allowed to take sharp materials in school, I decided to use it myself for my arts and crafts and simple cutting of papers. It is made of stainless steel with a ribbed grip so it does not slip from your hands and is snuggly fit in your grip. The two grips are coated with rubber and a ribbed lining. The cutting shear itself is sharp so I will not recommend this to younger kids. At least have the supervision of an adult should this kind of scissor be required.
I like the size of this scissor. The shears are about 2 inches and if you include the handle it is 5 inches only. Good enough to fit in your small drawers.
I can cut small and thin wires with this shear and I am glad I bought it. It's such a mighty scissor with a very affordable price!
