Size Name: 8-Inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When this scissor arrived I decided to do a "cutting comparison". People thought I was crazy as I walked around the office randomly cutting things with 2 different scissors. I cut paper and cardboard, plastic, and fabric. First I would cut with the Fiskars Amplify and then with my old tried-and-true scissor.

Both scissors were able to cut "normal" stuff equally well, but the Fiskars did a better job of cutting through thicker, denser items. The Fiskars was able to cut through the plastic case of a day calendar, a #2 pencil, a thick suede beanbag, plastic zip-ties, 3-ring binder, etc., but sadly the Fiskars was not able to cut through a penny or a metal paper clip.

The Fiskars also gave a cleaner cut when cutting through stacks of paper. When cutting through a 100+ page magazine the cut line from the Fiskars was straight and clean, but the cut line from my old scissor was twisted and jagged. With the old scissor the upper and lower blades separated during the cut causing the wad of pages to twist during the cut. This twisting gave the cut a fan-like look. But the Fiskars blades stayed together while cutting the 100 page magazine so the cut looked perfect on every page in the stack.

The ergo shape of the handle was also very comfortable. I had no finger discomfort even after cutting a company phone book in half.

So for just everyday tasks this Fiskars Amplify might be overkill, but if you have thicker, denser material to cut this scissor would be a perfect fit.

These crafting scissors are a crafter's dream. They cut through all types of heavy and/or thick mixed media like cardboard, chipboard, fabric, leather, wallpaper, etc. leaving a sharp clean even cut. I did not try out anything super-thick, as they are just scissors, not industrial quality cutters, intended to be used for crafting--I had no trouble cutting anything in my craft supply. The grip is soft and comfortable, and easy on my hands.

Unfortunately, I started out by running my index finger over the blade to see how sharp it was, and found out that they are incredibly sharp! (I had a long, painful cut as a result, but that was my own stupidity, and a credit to the scissors; I honestly have never owned scissors that were so sharp before!) The scissors have a blade protector and I would highly recommend using it and warn anyone else who does that the scissors are super sharp.

In the enclosed literature, Fiskars includes information about other scissors they have for mixed-media, varying the length and function a bit. They are all quite expensive, and in my opinion, worth the money. They make scissors that are one size bigger (10 inch) and one size smaller, but with a different blade, more like a longer snip at 6 inches.

Highly recommended.

I like this scissors as they cut through a number of materials very easily without any effort. I used to cut the packaging from a dog's treat (which are almost impossible to open) with no effort. My dog was very happy to get her treat quite rapidly. I also used them to cut some expired credit cards and they also did the job without any problem.

I like the sheath that comes with it and it fits the scissors very well and with the button that prevents the sheath from slipping out.

I recommend this scissors for your heavy duty tasks.

This is my second set of Fiskars. Which is good, because I needed strong scissors to cut the zip-tie that bound this pair to the package. My other Fiskars are the 5-in-1 Multi-Purpose Scissors. Both that and these Mixed Media Shears are top-notch scissors that will cut with precision through some pretty gnarly stuff.

These shears are expressly for "thick and heavy mixed media" like "fabric, paper and more" and they do have more cutting power. I tested them first on the 1/16 inch cardboard of the packaging. It cut right through, although it did require some thumb muscles. I think you'd get pretty tired if you had to use them for more than a few minutes. The action is pretty tight, but I believe some WD-40 would improve it, if you had a project that required you to use them all day. The ergonomics for my smallish man hands is very good.

(I didn't test the WD-40 because I don't want to get these dirty -- even though they have a lifetime warranty. The other day I caught my wife opening up a package with our previous Fiskars, slicing right through the tape. Nothing gums up scissors faster than cutting packing tape. For that reason, I may just hide this second pair :) .)

These shears have "Amplify" technology, which as near as I can tell is just a pin that extends on one side to give a bit more leverage. How much does it help? Hard to know. I tried to cut a penny but it couldn't do that. It cut through thin leather no problem, though.

Overall, I think I prefer my Multi-Purpose Fiskars for everyday household scissor use. The extra leverage in this pair is overkill for me, personally.
