This style of Scissor is hundreds of years old. All forged and hand shaped steel, the relatively short blades are simultaneously both delicate enough and tough enough to cut silk or soft sheet steel. The three sizes (measured by blade length) in the set are 1-3/8, 2-1/4 and 2-3/4". The clincher is that they are very inexpensive - and they are great for left handed people too.

Made In China.

Elegant Looking But Hard To Use
Reviewed By:   (Nashville, TN) 
The largest size of these scissors feels completely off balance for me. I have normal-sized female hands, but I can't open them wide enough to snip anything. Are they supposed to be used with two hands? The other two sizes I can open fine, but they don't feel all that natural in my hands, with the thin curving handles. The action sticks a little as you open the blades wider. They do look elegant, though, and they're not expensive.

Chinese Scissors

These classic Chinese Scissors are wonderful. I purchased a number of them a few years ago as Christmas gifts, and they were very well received. My recent purchase of 6 (2 sets of 3) was in anticipation of a Bonsai workshop I am presenting soon to my Garden Club. They are sharp, sturdy and have enough of a blade overlap to allow for several sharpenings. Also the handles can be bent to allow the tips to be resized after sharpening so they continue to cross. The large and medium sizes will cut woody as well as herbaceous plant material, and the small size is perfect for precise twig and leaf pruning. Of course, they are all also great for cutting paper and card stock. I love the historical continuity they represent, scissors being one of the oldest manufactured tools of humankind. Thank you for carrying them!

I bought two sets of these as Christmas gifts. I have a set of my own. I leave a pair in the kitchen drawer, one in my desk and one in the shop. They're quite sharp and feel good in the hand. A great value.
