Top customer reviews
Cuts are very smooth with little to no friction. Precision cuts are easy to do and it feels like a extension of yourself when doing fine cuts
Very ergonomic, your hands won't strain after extended use and very comfortable to hold compared to other scissors I owned in the past
Overall best scissors I've owned so far in my lifetime
Having a pair of scissors in a variety of locations (kitchen drawer, office desk, garage in multiple locations, etc.) is so convenient. If you have not seen it, I highly recommend watching Jamie Hyneman's (from Mythbusters) M5 shop tour--it is a fairly short video available online. In Hyneman's tour, he highlights phone stations located throughout his shop, where at multiple locations he has several identical items (e.g., paper, sharpie, pen, scissors, tape, etc). While I do not have a shop, I took inspiration from Hyneman in having certain items spread throughout my house/garage for convenient access--it really saves time scrounging for a pen/paper/scissors/etc.
Finally, possibly the best thing about having these is that it saves me from the mortal sin of using my better half's sewing scissors to cut inappropriate things.
I decided to test the Scotch scissors and regular scissors and compare how well each can cut through different materials. As expected, the Scotch scissors fared well in cutting standard printing paper. Both the Scotch scissors and regular scissors did a fine job. For standard, everyday uses, like cutting paper, the Scotch Precision Scissors did not seem to provide that much of an advantage over regular scissors.
HOWEVER, when cutting through items such as napkins, plastic bags, and t-shirts, the Scotch scissors were far superior. Being my first pair of quality sheers, I was amazed at how easily and how smooth these Scotch scissors cut through the mentioned items. The scissors do not cause the t-shirt fabric to bunch up, and I can make straight, clean cuts. As a result, the final product has a much cleaner and appealing presentation. This is perfect for cutting off the sleeves to make tank tops for summer!
Overall, I am highly satisfied with my purchase. I would definitely purchase Scotch Scissors again. But since these feel so durable, it may be a while until I have to replace them!
Here are the individual reasons I like these scissors...
---Ergonomics--From an ergonomic standpoint, they are comfortable thanks to a rubberized grip a molded handle which fits the human hand really well. The actual act of cutting is easier and I feel these reduce fatigue compared to value-brand scissors.
---Performance--From a performance perspective, these use high-quality stainless steel blades, which are finished to a razor sharp & almost flawless grind from the factory. The blades hold their edge for a very long time, and are easy to sharpen if you have the right equipment. These cut all different kinds of materials with a very, very clean cut.
---Value--From an economic standpoint, these are a lot more affordable than Scotch's $25 flagship titanium scissors, but still give flagship performance.
---Upkeep--From a maintenance perspective, these can be easily taken apart and cleaned if they get gunked up, plus this makes these very easy to sharpen. The lifetime warranty is also an added plus.
So overall, I absolutely love these scissors and feel they are a better design than others that are more comfortable to use, and will last a longer time. And given they can be had for about 6 bucks, I feel these are not just high-performance, but also a good value. If you want a pair of really good scissors without breaking the bank, this is a great choice!
