I compared the following fabric shears, listed in order of how well I liked them:

1. The Kai 7250: 10 inch Professional Shears N7250 (7250) - Professional Shears
2. The Gingher 10 Inch Knife Edge Bent Trimmers (Note: I list these here because I prefer this length, but I only tested the 8" and 12" models below.)
3. The Kai 7300: 12 inch Professional Shears N7300 (7300) - Professional Shears
4. The Gingher Knife Edge Bent Trimmers 12
5. The Gingher G-8T KE Tailors Shears, 8-Inch
6. The Gingher G-8 8-Inch Knife-Edge Dressmaker's Shears
7. The "Kai 110: 11 inch Tailoring Shears S-110 (S-110) - Professional Shears"
8. The "Kai 7240-AS: 10 inch Serrated Edge Shears N7240-AS (7240-AS) - Professional Shears"

I bought all the Ginghers on Amazon, and all the Kais from their web site (Amazon doesn't sell them). I evaluated them by cutting eight 4" long layered sheets of lightweight cotton fabric at once. My criteria were:

- smoothness of cutting
- was the edge straight, or did it wave?

I've been given a pair of Gingher shears as a bridal shower gift (I made my own wedding dress) and they have been my favorites throughout the last 17 years. They are sharp right to the tips, an essential feature of the shears needed for trimming seams.

I purchased a second pair so that I'd have one to use while my originals went back to the Gingher factory for sharpening (a service they provide for a mere $7.50). I hope in time to have all Gingher shears in my sewing room!

I can't say enough good things about Gingher scissors. They cut through light and medium weight cloths like a hot knife going through butter. They operate smoothly and are well balanced. Further, with the dearth of scissor-sharpening options available these days, it is nice to know that Gingher will sharpen their scissors when that operation is necessary. I'm replacing all my scissors with Ginghers!

I bought these scissors on the advise of my quilting teacher. She said how great they are & there is a lifetime guarantee that they will sharpen them for you. Apparently you just have to mail them in.

I have to admit the price is great! The presentation when you get the scissors is beautiful. They give you a black sleeve for the scissors & a lovely chrome plated box to keep them in. But when I lifted up the scissors they were too heavy for me. That is because they are top quality steel. I was going to return them but my cousin who is a quilter really liked them & bought them from me.

So I know it is a great product but buyer beware: it is not for people who do not want a heavy pair of scissors.

It cuts through multiple pieces of fabric cleaning all the way to the tip. It's a bit heavy, but I like the feel of the weight. Take good care of them (don't cut tape or wires), have them sharpened, and they should last forever. Don't forget the left handed version too!

A winner. To me, they are by far superior to Mundial in feel in the hand and ... wow ... in cutting fabric ... seems to melt through the material.
I bought six pairs to give as Christmas gifts, and also went to Walmart and bought six pair of stainless steel scissors (pkg of 2 for $3) and put a tag on the Gingher scissors "cut cloth only" and on an enclosed pair of "el cheapo" scissors from Walmart a tag which said "for cutting paper."

These scissors are worth their weight in gold. I can cut through any type of fabric with ease. As a test, I cut eight layers of cotton fabric and was amazed at the ease of cutting and each layer looked like I cut it individually. The scissors are knife-edge so I can sharpen them with a standard knife sharpener.

These shears of very high quality and are extremely sharp. That said, for someone with man-sized hands (being a man myself), they're not very comfortable. The handle is relatively small and the force required to complete the last half of the cut is high. Combined together (the small opening and tight grip) made for sore hands. If I could loosen the action or increase the size of the grips, I'd be in love with them.
