Pleasantly surprised. Very solid.

I like the feel of stainless steel scissors; the cut is clean and usually comparatively easy. The pair I had used a rather thin stainless metal and the blades would push away from each other while cutting cardboard or multiple sheets of paper. I purchased these thinking for the price I could't go too far wrong, but I was even more delighted than I expected. Each blade is a full 3/32" thick, thicker than the edge of a U.S. nickle! If someone tried to cut a brick with these I am not sure I would bet on the brick coming out in one piece. The thick blade even extends significantly up into the handles.
The description uses the word "recycled", and I think the packaging indicated that word applied the plastic handle. The handle has a great feel; they are good quality and fit comfortably in either left or right hand (I am a lefty myself.)
I may very well order another package or two (2 scissors per package.) At this price it would be worth having another couple pairs to keep at convenient locations around the house.
