I debated the price for a while, but I eventually gave in. I hate I waited so long! These are nice and heavy. They are well balanced and easy to use. I've trimmed thread and denim with these. They worked great on both! They are worth the investment.
Update: The wife moved out, but I kept the scissors
I'm sorry to say, they aren't the same. Upon removing them from their packaging, I immediately noticed they're slightly lighter. Evidently, the metal used is of inferior quality as not only are the new ones 5 grams lighter, they're also about a 1/4" LONGER.
Maybe it's the difference between my older, "made in Italy" pair and the new "made in China" ones. Or maybe it's because Gingher was purchased by the inferior and cheaply made Fiskars. Either way, I'm disappointed to see Gingher taking this direction.
I used a cheap set from Ikea for awhile, and they were great scissors but not great quality. They started not cutting even the threads, and the blades bent apart from each other. I wanted something that would last more than a few weeks, so I went with the ghinger nippers, even though they were expensive. I have another set of Gingher scissors from the 70's and they are still going strong.
When these came, I was really pleased. They are heavy (but not too heavy)....the weight that tells me I won't have bent edges! Of course, they are put metal so that helps with the longevity as well. They cut beautifully and are definitely my favorite pair of nippers I've ever seen. I take them with me everywhere and get a bit frantic when they aren't there! It did take me a second to figure out how to hold them and it was awkward the first time....but now they feel like an extension of my hand.
The only thing I don't like is there is nothing to lock them closed. I keep them in a plastic bag (the bag it came with) so that I don't accidentally cut my fingers. If this had something to hold the blades together when not in use, I would give it a 5 star. Due to this, it's really like a 4.9999 star, but I just couldn't go with a full five. If they start making them with a close option, I'll be buying several more! (and even if they don't, I'll still buy again)

Love these. The weight of the cutters and the smooth motion of the blades is so nice. My second pair (thought I lost my first pair.)Published 1 day ago by Lilac33
Not as sharp as I expected them to be (you have to hold the thread taut to get a one-time, clean cut), but they're super easy to grip and quite comfortable. Read morePublished 2 days ago by MysticSpira
These are great nippers. Easy to control and VERY sharp. Perfect for trimming tag threads after removing sewn fabric from machine. They fit my hand perfect. Recommend highlyPublished 7 days ago by Thomas H. Digiovanni
I wish the tips were sharper and more fine. The tips are too rounded for detailed work.Published 20 days ago by Dawn
