The handle is incredibly comfortable, and sized perfectly for my hands. I can see me cutting many many yards of fabric with these scissors. I have a lot of trouble with my hands, and I can tell within a minute if the grip isn't going to work. The grip/feel of the KAI is pure heaven.
So what was I using/what have I used before?
Fiskars Softouch Spring Action Titanium Nitride Scissor 8" - they chew, they don't cut. They're horrid.
Ginghers - I had Ginghers for many years. They were always too small for my hands and very uncomfortable/painful to use if I cut a lot, or cut heavy fabrics. They were better than the Fiskars, but oh man, the Ginghers never cut with the smooth flow of these KAI.
Why did I buy the initial set of Fiskars?
Well... I returned to sewing after a 15+ year hiatus. Reading reviews, I bought the FISKARS Softouch Spring Action Titanium Nitride Scissor 8" (~62.00) based on reviews. At the time, I also bought a little tiny pair of KAI scissors. I wasn't familiar with the KAI brand, but a quilting instructor swore by the little ones, and nobody I know sews, so I was sort of a green horn where scissors were concerned. My Ginghers were mauled by paper cutting children, and relocated to one of my children's homes never to be seen again. :)
Save yourself aggravation and discomfort. These 8" KAI Prof. Shears are everything you could wish for, and then some. Yeah, they're 55 bucks, but you'll get what you pay for! Those Fiskars are now 62.00 paper scissors, banished to the gift wrapping box...
Call me a KAI fan forever.
Usually, I have had Scotch, Fiskars, Stanley, and many $8 scissors for general use. I've had Gingher, Wiss, and Fiskars professional snips for sewing.
These scissors are better than all of them, and ½ to ¼ the price of the pro shears.
The metal used in manufacturing these is superlative. Way better than that chromed, high carbon stuff they use in Ginghers, are the cheap stainless they use in the others.
THIS METAL IS NOT LIKE THE STAINLESS USE HAD IN OTHER SCISSORS! This is high-carbon stainless steel, which is martensitic, and more prone to rusting (so you've got to take care of them!), But the edge is sharp, and sure to stay that way a long time.
I have large hands, and and the finger holes fit just fine, and the soft plastic material is very comfortable. "The plastic is just a lining in the finger holes, the metal of the blades goes all the way around the finger hole!
The hinge is well-designed, and wonderfully functional. You know the friction you feel and cheap scissors as you close them, as the blades rub together? You feel none of that in these shears. And they cut paper, cardboard, plastic, etc. as smooth and precise as any shears, from the hinge, to the tips.
I am going to use these scissors daily, for any imaginable task, but I am going to take care not to abuse them!
if I ever buy another pair of scissors, I am going to get the Kai micro serrated scissors, for more heavy duty, and kitchen use. Until I do, if ever, these are going to cut everything for me.
Well, out of all the shears and scissors that we have ever owned, the Kai 7250's are certainly number 1. They are tough, built-to-last, and razor sharp. The Japanese steel that they are made out of is incredibly strong and it enables the scissors to keep their edge for years to come.
I used to think Gingher were the absolute best, but I would put these higher on the charts because they are tougher and constructed for the professional who is going to need to effortlessly cut through clothes on a daily basis.
The rubber handle is dense and heavy. These are true quality! worth it!

I would highly recommend these scissors and posit that although they might seem expensive, they are worth every penny. You get what you pay for..a superb piece of kit.
Was originally thinking about buying from the better known European brands that a lot of tailors use (actually put down a deposit for an Italian pair). But, will buy Kais from now on.
Shipping was also fast. I think they shipped them off the same day as I placed the order. Thanks!
