simple and useful – Precision Steel Thrum Scissors - Color Assorted Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Its a very smart design! The tough blades are angled against each other in a shallow X shape and held against each other naturally with your grip. It works naturally hether you're a southpaw(me) or right-handed.
Cons:
These are not safety scissors. The springs pull them open, and they're quite pointy enough even closed. Keep them in a cup with your pencils. They don't give you the sheer brute force of ordinary scissors.
Other:
You cannot open them any wider than depicted.
Bottomline:
They are great for things that ordinary scissors just gnaw on they're fantastic sewing scissors, especially with their very pointy tips. Fabric, hair, thread, plastic wrap, and rubber bands are all cut with no effort. Even really sticky tape that'd gum up other scissors is cut with no trouble because of the way the blades scrape past each other. But they don't have the leverage to cut thick cardboard.
