I got these on sale and didn’t expect them to be half as good as they are. Wish there had been another pair!

Our cheap kitchen scissors broke and I was hoping to bring home something to replace them. These were regularly $8.99, but were on sale for $6.99. I have now “stolen” these for my office, and given the kitchen the other cheap pair that I had. I sure wish this hadn’t been the last one on the rack. I’ll be looking to see if they get more in, and I’ll buy another at full price. They are a bargain even at $9. Here’s why.

1. These scissors feel very nice in the hand, with a cushioned grip

2. The blades are very hard- for lack of a better term. They aren’t at all flexible... in other words the cuts are going to be precise.

3. The edges meet cleanly for the whole length of the blade.

4. They are very sharp

5. The hinge has just the right amount of resistance

The above are my reactions to how they work. The package says that they are titanium bonded to a stainless steel core which makes the metal three times harder than stainless steel, and that it will stay sharp a long time. It says they are very corrosion resistant, and resistant to residue build-up from adhesives and tapes. Since this is one of my complaints about my old scissors, I’ll update you after I’ve used these for a while.

They are listed as 8" scissors with a straight handle. The blades are 3.75" from the hinge.

They have a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.
