I admit, I was a bit skeptical. After trying out Kai scissors, I'm a happy convert from Gingher. To start with, the handles are so comfortable. The soft, larger hand grip allows you place all your fingers in the bottom handle, and you can certainly cut with much less fatigue. With arthritic hands, this is a blessing! Add the lightweight feature of the scissors, and I'm now able to cut out whole patterns without hand fatigue! Then the sharpness of the shears are by far the best feature! Just cut out a pattern with 4 layers of quilting cotton. It went through the fabric layers like butter, the cuts were straight, and as advertised, they cut all the way to the tips. Marvelous scissors, I'll be adding more to my collection!

Shipping by the company was super fast! Got from Washington to Texas in 3 days!

Thanks Kai! Love it when products are as good as promised!

My wife used this pair of scissors during her lymphedema CLT class. It was used to cut foam of various densities, ranging from hard foam to yoga mat type stuff. It was all at least 1/2" thick or so. Her instructors and fellow students were jealous of her super sharp Kai's. They cut through this thick stuff very smoothly, all the way to the tip, and the ergonomic handle was perfect. My wife said she felt sorry for the people that didnt bring good scissors and had to use the instructor provided ones.

It would be nice if they came with a carrying case to keep the sharp ends safe. Kai doesnt make a sheath for scissors this size, so keep that in mind. My wife used 2 socks to carry them in, and obviously it would have been better with a real sheath.

I make slipcovers professionally and these are my workhorse pair. They are just the right length and weight for my needs. Any longer than 9.5" and I find my hands get tired and achy. I buy several pairs each year. I highly recommend them.

I purchased these shears to replace my gazillion year old pair. I chose this product because of the design of the handles and the overall product ratings. I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand and have a scar that is bothered by most other scissors. This pair is not only excellent and wonderfully designed, the larger handle design/handle material makes them extremely comfortable to use. Love these and will likely be purchasing other sizes in this same design as the larger handles are perfect. Excellent product, excellent price!

I am extremely pleased with these scissors. They cut through material very well, even more than one thickness. The handles are very comfortable and large enough for use.

These are excellent Dressmaking Shears. They cut through two layers with ease. They handle all types of fabrics I had on hand. From thin to thick, these are really nice shears. I plan to get years of use out of them as long as I can hide them from the family. My last pair of shears became paper scissors after my wife used them to cut paper. These are really nice dressmaking shears and I am really happy with them. They are comfortable to use.

I have a pair of Ginghers and while I love them, I wanted to try these to see if they were worth the hype. They are! The first time I used these scissors I noticed a difference in how they cut through the fabric when compared with my Ginghers and they are lighter weight. I use and like both but I will say if you haven't tried them and were wondering if they worked well, buy them. You won't be disappointed!

I've never known that there could be such a pair of shears that cut so crisply, so smoothly, and so easily. My god these shears are awesome. You need to get these and see for yourself. They are a bit pricey, but I think they will last much longer than a cheaper pair of scissors.
