Way back in the mid 1960s I went to work for Ma Bell and was issued a pair of these scissors. They were so mechanically sound and the steel so well tempered that a quarter could be cut in half with them. And that was the first thing I tried with this pair. I wasn't disappointed. They cut that quarter in half as slick as a whistle. From that little experiment I concluded the quality of these scissors had not suffered over the last 5 decades.

Both my husband and I are retired telephone technicians...Since we retired we no longer can get our "snips" as we call them from our former employer. We have used this same kind of product from different suppliers over many years of working...The top product we liked the best were these Klein snips...Take it from two people who used this product for well over 60 years of combined service...this is a quality product! They last!!!!

Best little sissors ever. I had used these Klein sissors when I was cutting out paper dolls in the 1950's and recently I saw them on Amazon. They looked just like the ones I had used so I bought one. It was the same sissors and was so handy cutting cloth, paper, sheet metal, wire ,,, that I bought 12 more for presents. Everybody loves them. Klein should market them as a general purpose sissors!

Great scissors. I work as a stage technician and these are an invaluable tool that i cary with me all the time. They are nice and small while still powerful. The ridges really help when cutting those tougher things. The wire stripping notches are a bit tough to use, but if its all you have (or what you have without having to go search for something else) they work. The only issue I have had so far is that the tips while not being what I might call "stabingly sharp" are still sharp enough to have cut a hole in every pocket and pouch I have put them in so far. Still love them tho.

These scissors are great for the price, they are very tough and precise and will cut through some really tough stuff. I bought these as a general use scissor that would last me a long time and one that I would not have to resharpen very often and one that I could tighten up after it gets loose.

I do have some a few issues with the scissors however. First the finish is not perfect out of the box, it has some spots on the surface that look a little dirty or unpolished usually in the sections where the metal bends sharply. The lube used doesn't seem to be that good as they were feeling pretty rough right away so I tried taking them apart. For me these scissors came super tightly screwed together and I tried as hard as I could to unscrew the pieces but I couldn't get it. My screwdriver actually slipped out a few times and bent the edges of the screw. Maybe I am just weak but I am hoping through use they will loosen up so I will try again later. My last issue with them is that they squeak when opened while new due to the tight blades rubbing together and it feels pretty crunchy rather than a precise glide.

Even though I have these problems I understand that all the cost is going to the quality of metal and tempering. I actually wish they had a premium model or something with a higher price with perfect precision and polish because I love the way these look and feel in the hand. They still do their job great, and are especially impressive for cutting wires.

I bought the ones without the notches as I didn't think I would ever use them, and I found them to not look that good, but now I am regretting it as I will probably need them in the future after all.

If you need to cut things that are large and super heavy duty these may not be the best fit as the handles are small. Go for the one with a larger handle or pick up some emt medical shears which are a good price so you can feel better about abusing them.

I bought a pair of these scissors for my mom. Her dad was a telephone tech in WWII and later for Ma Bell. She had a pair of these from the late 60's, and they were still sharp and awesome. I bought her another pair, because I knew she would be devastated if she were to lose the ones from her dad.

To be COMPLETELY honest, I purchased these because of another reviewer stating the he could cut a quarter in half.
Needless to say, I could not do anything of the sort. It barely made a notch in the metal.
I purchased mine from amazon llc, so I'm not worried that I got poor quality.

I think my sewing scissors are sharper.

These are the best scissors, I had a pair that a colleague had given me and when I started using them I realized how great they were, unfortunately I put them in my pocket and lost them. This replacement pair and the leather case hopefully will prevent that from happening again.
