Product Description

Fiskars All-purpose Left-handed Scissors takes the smart design of the Original Orange-Handled Scissors and add true left-handed blades to give left-handed users a premium-quality cutting tool. High-grade, stainless-steel blades feature a precision-ground edge that stays sharp longer and cuts all the way to the tip — essential for anyone who cuts fabric. A lightweight design and ergonomically sculpted handles provide unmatched cutting control, and a bent-handle design keeps materials flat for precise cuts every time.

Do not buy these scissors unless you just want them for cutting things open that do not have to be precise, like hard to get into packaging. The only thing left handed about these scissors is the handle. The blades are the same as right handed scissors. So if you try and cut on a line, you can't see the line, the blade is in the way. You end up cutting about 1/8 of an inch away from the line. I am an artist and they are useless for me as I need to be exact. I have 2 old Fiskar left handed scissors and they are true lefty scissors. I compared them to these new ones and saw the problem about the position of the blades. Unfortunately, they are dull so my only option is try and get them sharpened or try one of the other brands. I called Fiskars and they told me they are aware of the problem with these scissors but these are the only ones they make now. In fact, the guy at customer service, told me he gets complaints all day long about them. I can't figure out these good reviews on Amazon unless they are by people who just want to cut things open and aren't trying to cut on a line.

Since there was some controversy in earlier reviews if the scissors are truly left-handed, I was hesitant when ordering them for my son school supplies. Well, we have just received the package and I can gladly report to the Amazon community that as of August 2013 this product is in fact truly left-handed scissors, both the blades and the handle. Fiskars makes excellent quality line of scissors that I was purchasing for my son over the years, so probably there is no need to talk about that. Hence overall five stars.

Look at the photo closely. The blades overlap like a standard right-handed pair (top blade on right when looking at the handle). Then look at the actual left-handed ones on Amazon or anywhere else. The top blade is on the Left. These are just ordinary right handed scissors with a modified handle. When I went to return them the invoice even SAYS right handed!

Fiskars has a knack for not only sharpening their blades, but for affixing both pieces of the scissors in a way that they don't wobble or cut poorly. Whether you buy them new or use them for years, these babies are right on the mark. They cut a crisp, clean line through paper and can be used for fabric, hair or just about anything else that needs cutting. If you cut hair and/or fabric, however, it's a good idea to have a different pair for each thing you're cutting. Scissors dedicated to cutting fabric won't always do well on paper or hair and vice versa.

The rating of four out of five stars (instead of a full five stars) is really just my own fault, as follows: Both my husband and daughter are left-handed, so I thought buying a pair of left-handed scissors would be a good idea. But although the scissors are quite nice, they are girl-sized (ladies size 7 glove). I will save them for my daughter who is off at college and purchase another pair, this time being very mindful that they be large enough for a burly guy with large hands. So, if you buy these, be mindful of the size of the handles if you are buying them for a large-handed leftie.

Had to write this review just to add some balance. Been fighting left versus right handed products for 7 decades. Have small collection of left handed scissors. Yes, at one time there were more companies making them than now, even though now there are more left handed people in the world than before. Go figure. Any company that keeps manufacturing good products that serve the left handed community should not be undermined by reviews that will cut sales and diminish the odds we lefties will have these products in the future. More to set the record straight than to review these scissors, I have to say that if someone says this model number of Fiskar scissors is not truly left handed, they do not know what they are talking about. 1) The left handed blades will squeeze together to keep cutting edges working when used by a left handed person. Just the opposite with right handed scissors. 2) The blades are also positioned for someone left handed being able to see the cut. Just the opposite if a leftie is using right handed scissors. 3) If grips are ambidextrous, they will fit either left or right hand, and is the one area that is open to flexibility on the call of left versus right. The Fiskars are ergonomic for left handed person. All in all, I'm miffed that anyone who is left handed would actually call these "not truly left handed". Hope this review will nullify some of the damage done by a poor review. Lastly, Fiskar makes a really exceptional product.

The best fully left-handed scissors I've ever seen. Typical excellent Fiskars scissors - and fully left-handed!

I recently purchased a pair of Bent Multi-Purpose Scissors for my niece who is left-handed. For years she has struggled with products made for right-handed people but has never uttered a word to describe the awkwardness she experienced. To my delight, she immediately picked up these scissors and could cut without any pain! I had never really thought about being left-handed and how that might impose a number of problems but I now view being left-handed as being a special gift when I see how happy my niece is!
