Winner of the Arthritis Foundation Ease-of-Use Commendation, our Easy Action Scissors are the perfect choice for people with arthritis or limited hand strength. A spring-action design opens the blades after each cut, greatly reducing the effort needed for this basic motion. High-grade, stainless-steel blades feature a precision-ground edge that stays sharp longer and cuts all the way to the tip — essential for anyone who cuts fabric. An ergonomically sculpted handle with Softgrip provides excellent cutting control and comfort, and a bent handle design keeps materials flat for precise cuts every time.

Just to be clear, these are fabric shears, not regular, everyday scissors. They're specially shaped for cutting fabric without lifting it off the table. The handles are slightly padded, so they're comfortable to hold, and the grip is wide enough that it doesn't pinch your fingers, the way some scissors do. I always recommend these shears to my students, and it's one way that I can judge how serious a student is about taking classes. If they're willing to pay a little extra for the "good" shears, I know they're dedicated. If not, they'll buy a cheap pair of shears, which are difficult to cut with.
Last week, I borrowed one of my students' brand-new pair of shears to demonstrate proper cutting technique and was startled by how much easier they were to cut with than mine! Apparently, mine had grown dull and it happened so slowly, I didn't even notice. It would have been difficult to get to the shop to get them sharpened, so I simply ordered a new pair. It was the exact same Amazon listing as the first pair I bought several years ago, but the shears I received were different. Instead of being gray and black, with a small orange lock, they're bright orange and white, which is rather hideous. Even my students have commented on how ugly the new shears are! That's disappointing, especially since the photo in the description still shows the old gray and black version. (Or it did at the time of my purchase.)
Even so, I cannot complain. These are excellent shears for cutting fabrics of all types, from heavy denim to fragile chiffon, and everything in between. I use them daily, and I will keep returning to buy them every time I need a new pair. I won't even consider other shears! I might even buy an extra pair to keep on hand in case anything happens to mine. They last a long time, too! I had my first pair of shears for at least seven years, without any problems. The only reason I replaced them is because they were growing dull. But if you have a sewing shop nearby, you can simply get yours sharpened once a year, and they'll last a lifetime!
I was going to deduct a star for the awful color of my new pair, but that's superficial and I really shouldn't allow the color to bother me. All things considered, these are a GREAT pair of sewing shears! Spring-loaded, comfort grip, super sharp---all you could ask for in a pair of sewing shears. Five stars and highly recommended to anyone who sews, quilts, or needs to cut fabric for any reason. (Note: They aren't suitable for clipping, notching, or trimming seam allowances, or for clipping threads. They're just too large---you run the risk of accidentally cutting your main fabric. For jobs like that, I recommend a pair of 4-inch scissors, like the "lightweight embroidery scissors" made by Gingher.)
I sew. I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which is a connective tissue disorder. Simply put, it means I am MUCH more prone to getting repetitive injuries and arthritis in my hands. If I have to do a big project that involves a lot of cutting, that means a lot of pain.
These scissors are AMAZING for alleviating that stress. I completed a HUGE project - my son's Halloween costume - with no hand issues. And the difference between these an regular scissors? There is just ZERO comparison. None.
These were so worth the price I paid for them and then some. I highly recommend, especially for hands prone to injuries.
Oh, and they cut really well, too! I almost forgot that part. But they do!

I can't use traditional scissors because of the way they rub. These are spring loaded so that all I have to do is squeeze them together to cut things. They are sharp, easy to close and great for all sorts of cutting from small to large. I can also use these endlessly as they don't hurt my hands or dig into them.
I'd recommend these to anyone as they beat traditional scissors just in how they are shaped and work.
