These scissors are the easiest cutting tool I have ever used.
J. Pippin
This also means that for someone with arthritis in the hands, traditional scissors can result in pain after using them for a time.
Stacy
That's when I discovered these spring loaded scissors, which felt like an answer to all my prayers.

The Fiskars 9911 model pictured with this listing is the older version of these same scissors -- which is the reason I chose to purchase them here. However, it appears that Fiskars no longer produces the version pictured. They new model has been redesigned to be more "ergonomic" I suppose... but the slide lock mechanism on the new models isn't located in the same spot which makes it slightly less convenient for me large hands. Also, the lock on the new model tends to slip forward when cutting and hinders the range of the scissors and will occasionally slip back and let the scissors open when they are in my holster.

All in all I have always been happy with the Fiskars scissors -- the blades stay sharp and the cutting action is smooth -- but as with some other products in the past (think "New Coke") the older model is superior to the newer.

I use these scissors a lot, as they're in general great scissors. They'll easily cut through several layers, including a combination I often use of felted wool, woven interfacing, and fusible fleece. The only problem is the little orange catch -- it often slides forward during a cut so that I can't complete the cut until I push the catch back again. This has turned what would have been a five-star review into a three-star, as it happens a lot and is very annoying. From the rest of the reviews, I see this isn't a common problem but does happen occasionally. If they'd fix this, these would be hands-down my favorite scissors.

The spring action is a real hand-saver. I occasionally have carpel tunnel syndrome and joint pain. These scissors are the easiest cutting tool I have ever used. They make regular scissors seem old fashioned.

Having arthritis in my thumbs can make the use of regular scissors painful. These scissors were helpful in eliminating the pain and cut fairly well though they are rather large and cumbersome. My main issue with them is that they are spring loaded and have a sliding clip to keep them closed when not in use. This clip has a mind of its own allowing the scissors to randomly snap open loudly. My solution has been never to store them closed, but this is somewhat awkward and dangerous.

Excellent control for cutting fabric, etc., without engaging all the hand and arm joints normally required. Much easier for me to use with my arthritic hands.

I really like these scissors, they're easy to use, cut well and most importantly: are easy on the hands. I got these because my mother purchased a pair for herself due to her arthritis and I really liked them. I would recommend them to anyone with arthritis or anyone who has to use scissors quite a bit. It takes a lot less force to make a cut so they don't fatigue the hand the way regular scissors do, and are particular easy on the thumbs since most of the cutting action is done by the fingers and the thumb is not surrounded by the handle creating painful pressure points.

The big caveat: the locking mechanism is weak. The first pair I ordered would not lock right out of the package. It actually sprung open as I got them out. I had to return it for a replacement. Just now as I was sitting at my desk they sprung open and startled me. I think that the orange plastic of the lock has worn down the ridges on the handle that locks it in place. I'm very disappointed and will probably contact the company so they can do something about it. After two failed locks, one from light use and another from no use at all, I won't be purchasing another pair until changes are made.

Scissor Fiskars Spring Action / B00006IFNC

I've been using these with my fabric crafts for over a year now, and I love them. The spring action makes it much easier to cut large amounts of fabric without tiring your hand and arm, and these scissors provide for both a strong (multiple layers of fabric) and precise cut without any fraying of the material. I especially like the little orange slide button safety feature that holds the scissors closed with not in use, and the flat bottom of the scissors slides perfectly along my quilting mat and means that I don't have to lift the fabric very high in order to make my cuts (which also helps with precision).

~ Ana Mardoll

When I went scissors shopping five years ago, I had just made the unhappy discovery that Fiskars' razor edged scissors were too stiff to manipulate. I do a lot of sewing, and I needed a sharp pair of scissors that wouldn't wear out my hands. However, they had to do a good job cutting out my pattern pieces, too! That's when I discovered these spring loaded scissors, which felt like an answer to all my prayers. I took a chance on the all purpose blades and never regretted it. When I went scissors shopping again last week, hoping to have a backup pair ready in case my trusty original pair should fail me or go missing, I noticed they'd made some changes to the scissors. I read the reviews carefully and decided to take a chance. After a marathon cutting session this weekend, I'm happy to report that despite the changes that Fiskars made, my hands are happy, the scissors easily open and shut, and my pattern pieces look crisp, not ragged at all. So the blades themselves seem as excellent as ever!

Unfortunately, the changes to the handles are not as nice. I'll outline the changes briefly and discuss their downsides.
1. They changed the handle material. They added more cushioning (good!) but they also cheapened the feel so it isn't as smooth (bad!). Time will tell if the lighter plastic is a plus or not. It could mean less fatique or it could mean the handle will break or crack over time.
2. The catch, although still accessible from both sides, is harder to move. The old style made it easy to flip the catch on and off with your thumb so you never had to take your hands off the blades. The new style requires you to use your pointer finger, and it doesn't feel like it's well connected to the catch on the other side.
