I have several pairs of Fiskars scissors that I bought about 10 years ago. When I looked for another pair I knew going in that Fiskars no longer made this scissor in the US, but I hoped that wouldn't matter. I was wrong.

I noticed several differences on the currently-shipping unit:

1) Under the logo imprinted on the blade, it no longer says "USA". No surprise there.
2) The blade steel is considerably thinner and the edges are rough cut.
3) The steel seems to be of poor quality. It has a less consistent texture and color than the US made pair, but I have to admit that may have something to do with their choice of finish...
4) The steel finish on my old pair was brushed, while the new has a linear rough cut appearance. You can clearly see the tooling marks on the steel. It looks and feels cheap.
5) The quality of the plastic used for the handles feels rougher, cheaper, and I noticed a couple rough edges left over from the molding process.

To be honest, I don't care where something is made as long as the quality is outstanding. It's clear, however, that since Fiskars moved manufacturing to China the scissors are no longer the quality item they used to be. The corner-cutting in materials and manufacturing quality are quite evident. If you want quality, look elsewhere.

I had purchased these to replace my old Fiskar Classic. Those were sturdy and a full 8". They could rip through any box I needed to open or break down. These new ones are 1/2" shorter (go figure), very light, has a recycled handle (no problem, except it isn't sturdy), and the scissors do not fully close. Of course, as with most items, they are now made in China (rather than Finland). Not only that, I have purchased 3 other various Fiskar models in the last 3 months and all 3 are very disappointing. I am debating a 4th, but "fool me once..."

Whereas the old Fiskar 8" scissors used to be a very high quality product, I was very dismayed to find that this is not the case for the ones they are currently producing. Rather, they are banking on the good name of the past to sell you a low quality product.

The main differences - no longer are the blades connected with a steel rivet, rather they are now connected with a cheap screw and plastic end. The blades themselves, while they used to be stamped stainless, are no longer. The cut of the blade is much more haphazard than it used to be, and some of the angled cuts that would add to production cost are missing. The scissors used to open and close with a nice fluidity but these have sticky points. The feel of the orange handles comes across as cheaper than the old ones.

Don't be fooled by the good brand name of the past on this item.

Unlike some others also labeled as "Fiskars" on Amazon, these are real ones.

While the dedicated right hand / left hand scissors are the actual classic Fiskars, revolutionary when they were first introduced, and the most comfortable, these simplified ones aren't far behind. Our family is mixed between right and left handers, so these ambidextrous ones suit everyone. They are more comfortable to hold than the other brand Fiskars knock offs, very durable, and they do fine in the dishwasher.

I HAVE USED FISKARS, SINCE THE 1970,S, CABINET SHOP, HOMEBUILDING, AT HOME, AND THEY ALL HAD A SLOPE, FOR YOUR THUMB. I ORDERED THIS, AS THE ALL PURPOSE, ASSUMING IT WOULD BE LIKE MY OTHERS, BUT NO. IT HAD A ROUND THUMB SLOOT, DIDN'T EVEN OPEN IT, AND DIDN'T KNOW THEY MADE THEM LIKE THAT. RETURNED IT, AND ORDERED THE 9.5 INCH, GOLD COLORED BLADES, GREAT HANDLES, AND LOVE THEM, SOO......6/17/2011

The edges of my 20-year-old Fiskars had finally become damaged beyond repair, so I ordered a new pair on Amazon. I was skeptical, as the quality of nearly every household product has declined since then, but these are the real deal. The plastic mold is slightly different from my old pair, but it's got the same smooth, high quality blades I expected. Worth every penny!

As with all new Fiskars products you will be very disappointed if you have some old ones around. I've used them in the past when they were good. You're doing good just to cut a piece of paper with them nowadays.

The scissors broke quickly. The screw holding the blades together goes into plastic, not a metal receiver. The stress placed upon it by cutting something semi hard (that I have cut a hundred times before with other scissors) the plastic receiver for the screw broke off, leaving me with two halves of a scissor.
