Great little cutters – Precision Ceramic Thrum Scissor Reviews

posted by stainedaxe on 07/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Sharp
- Stay sharp
- Satisfying cutting sound
- Cheap
Cons:
- Ceramic, can't be dropped or cut anything too hard
- Only one rivet on mine too
- Some rust on the handle, not a big deal, but it does reflect build quality.
Other:
I don't know what I was expecting when I ordered them but these guys are great! I use them around the house for cutting plants, string and thread (what they're intended for, I think) and even thin copper wire. They work great and that satisfying snip sound they make is awesome!
They had a little bit of rust on the handle. This didn't affect operation nor was it so bad that I would bother to order a replacement. But I thought I'd mention it just as an indicator of build quality, functionally perfect, cosmetically, maybe a bit short.
Bottomline:
A simple pair of Thrum scissors. They have not let me down in the months I've owned them. If you need something to cut small items or to have in your sewing box, I wouldn't look any further, these are great!
