Scissors for Sewing
Top Customer Reviews
Like many others have mentioned, for a long time we both thought that Gingher scissors were the best. We were loyal to Gingher. Grandma has a wonderful pair of Gingher scissors. But we've been struggling with the poor quality of late production Gingher scissors for several years. Twice, we've even sent scissors in to Gingher for servicing, but they came back little or no better. Gingher scissors will variously grab in spots, not cut at the very ends of the blades, or be hard to close. Cindy had resorted to using a pair of $10 Fiskar scissors, which aren't great, but they cut better than her Gingher's. Wanting to help her with this problem, and after reading so many positive reviews, I took it upon myself to order her a pair of these Kai brand.
Cindy is thrilled with these Kai scissors. She can't stop talking about how much she loves them. They're comfortable to use, require very little force to cut even heavy fabrics, they cut the sheerest fabrics just as well, They are sharp, and the cut well right out to the tips of the blades.
With the cost of even sending a pair of Gingher scissors to Gingher for servicing at $12 a pair, plus shipping costs to get them to Gingher, it's an easy decision to just throw them away. Then spend to only $6 more to get a pair of these fantastic Kai scissors.
I like using good tools myself, so I'm happy to help supply my wife with the best tools she can own. I was so pleased with my wife's reaction to these $22 scissors that I ordered her three more Kai scissors; one pair of 5-inch in the same series, an 8-inch pair of the Professional series, and a 10-inch Professional series. She's a professional and she deserves professional tools.
Maybe Grandma will leave us the good Gingher scissors in her will, but there's still no way they can be better than these $22 Kai scissors. We would prefer to buy an American product, but can't afford to subsidize poor American quality.
UPDATE (Sept. 2016): After two years of using her Kai Scissors almost every day. Cindy says the three large pair still cut like new. She keeps the 8 inch Pro scissors at her sewing machine. She keeps the 8 inch Dressmaker Shears at the ironing board. And she uses the 10-inch Pro scissors less often for cutting bulk fabric. She says that those three pair sill cut like new. About this lower cost pair (5210) she says, "If these were the only ones I had, I would be very happy with them. But the Pro Series scissors are just a little more precise feeling and have a more comfortable handle. I'm glad for all four pair."
She has also used the little pair of embroidery scissors every day to cut thread at her sewing machine. This is a LOT of use for these little scissors and they have finally (after more than two years of daily use) gotten to where they don't cut well on the last 1/2 inch of the tips where she uses them the most. This isn't at all disappointing, but it is time to order another pair. Professionals do expect to wear out tools eventually.
Also, shortly after trying out Cindy's Kai scissors, even grandma put her Gingher scissors away for good when her beau bought her a set of Kai scissors. She also says, "Wow, I can't imagine how I got along without these." The Ginghers are relegated to be heirloom pieces.
Well, it's almost 3 years later and the shears are still awesome! Very sharp, comfortable to use. I am purchasing another pair to use at work. I still highly recommend these shears.
