    I own 2 pair of these and the difference between the two is blatantly obvious. The good pair will easily cut through double denim jeans, and heavyweight fabric with ease. The poor pair will hardly cut paper, much less fabric. The difference is plain to see: the good pair is stamped FISKARS FINLAND, and the poor is only stamped FISKARS. I sew extensively, do quilting, machine embroidery and normal tasks, and curse each time I pick up the poor pair to use. I bought each pair at the same store about 3 years apart. Whatever happened to the good FIskars name?


    this product USED to be great as i have same pair from 20 yrs ago but the new ones are NOT the same. the new ones are no better than a $1 store pair of scissors. and ive tried every pair of fiskars (about 20 styles) in hopes of finding something comparable to my faves but none match it. obviously fiskars changed hands and cheapened their product to get more money. please fiskars make the original excellent ightweight inexpensive fabric cutting scissors. my originals cost under $20 and i sew for a living and use them ALL THE TIME as they are the only scissors that can nip a corner and are lightweight and dont fatigue my hands. the orange plastic is a sublimely smooth plastic where as the new ones are a rough gritty plastic. also please advise people where exactly they can get them sharpened. the local scissors sharpeners do not know how to do fiskars right and i know there is trick to it. so if you really cared about your product you would also tell people where to sharpen them. im happy to mail mine for proper sharpening. but im sure you dont want people to sharpen their scissors. you just want people to buy new ones. shame on you! not right path to take. make an excellent scissor and you will make money. quality over quantity. (and im sure i wont get an adequate answer to any of the above). but hoping...

    Not pleased with these scissors. They've cut me numerous times but i use them anyway because i found them in a dump. So this means that someone else must have not liked them as well. Get it together Fiskars!


    I love these scissors as they help me construct all types of arts and crafts. I also use them to cut off loose strands when knitting my sons sweaters. Great product!


    I love these very much.


    If I had to describe these scissors with one word I would say that these scissors are astounding. I come from a predominantly African American family and every person in my family enjoys using this product. Quite a few of my friends and family have received these scissors many a times as Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, Hunnakah, Quanza, and Chinese New Years presents. This may come as a surprise that an African American family celebrates such a plethora of holidays, but you my friend will prove to be uncultured if you think such a thought. My second cousin once removed, Tauheed Epps, once called these scissors, and i qoute, "the greates modern inventions o0f the 21st century


    I am very satisfied with the quality of these one of a kind manufactured scissors. They cut paper and anything i need them to like a charm. I am very pleased with the time the developers put into creating these grade-A scissors. I know that these scissors are made from the best material because i have used them in a Reverse Engineering project in my High School Class. Thank you Fiskars, for improving my life one step at a time.

    Great Product! Using it in Engineering as I speak for a reverse engineering project, and i am so amazed at the quality time that has been put in by the developers in creating this one of a kind magnificent product by Fiskars.


    I bought a pair of these scissors over 20 years ago and they are still good as new. I do alterations for many people so they get used alot. I purchased a sharpening tool made by Fiskars, and use it as needed.
