Most helpful critical review

Don't see what the big deal is about these snips. They might be a bit sharper than budget snips but they have some big drawbacks. The handles open too wide making them difficult to grasp with my medium sized hand. First I have to choke up on the handle, then compress the handle and then back my hand towards the end of the handle in order to fully compress the jaw. Also, the cutting surface is way too short. I have to take many, many bites with these to do any kind of prolonged cutting. Sometimes I have to stop and rest because my hand gets too tired. These might be all right for short cuts, or delicate work, but if you have to cut anything more than a foot or two, these aren't the right choice. I wish I could still return them.
