Straight smooth cuts
I gave this 5 out of 5 stars
These speed cutting Japanese knife edged tailor shears are so extremely sharp. They are made of stainless steel and have tempered blades. The handles are comfortable. A lot of times, when i do a lot of cutting my hand gets stuck in the scissors from sliding down into them. These seem to fit good. The cut very straight and smooth. No matter what I cut with them, there are no frays or anything like that. I do not sew but I use scissors almost everyday for something. These are nice and long and the cuts are perfect. I have used a needle and thread to repair a little hole or sew on a button or two, and it never fails that when I cut the thread it never cuts it smooth. It is so irritating trying to thread a needle with fuzz on the tip instead of a flat straight cut. Thankfully that is not an issue anymore. I also like to cut all my t-shirts into a v neck because I can't stand the material around my neck. I can now cut straight and even, when before I was making jagged cuts. I am satisfied. I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
