Amazingly smooth and precise – Precision Stainless Steel Thrum Scissors (Assorted Color) Reviews

posted by kiwijake on 01/21/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Beautiful smooth operation. Excellent control for delicate cutting operations. Consistent quality - I've ordered 6 now and they've all been perfect. Stainless blades won't rust. Easier to quickly pick up and use with one hand than regular scissors.
Cons:
Not suitable for small children due to the sharp cutting edges, pointed tips and the fact that they are open by default! Plastic pouch they come in is flimsy and fairly useless. Need to wipe oil off before using on paper or cloth (only need to do this once, the first time you use them).
Other:
Have ordered a few now for gifts, and they've come in about 3 different colours. They are easier to use than I was expecting, I thought they might have a tendency to roll sideways, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Very handy to have in a first aid kit.
Bottomline:
These are excellent value for such a well-made and useful little gadget.
