I've always used strait, I just bought a couple pairs of spring loaded MICRO SURGERY SURGICAL SCISSORS on ebay, for fifteen dollars they are really nice.

Well we have hit the bottom. I know it's winter and we can get better than 16 pages about a damn nipper. However, I have to draw a line someplace. Are you f'n kidding me? Is this what we are reduced to?

Let me elaborate. Scratch your butt, or openly or make an excuse to rub up against Bob Sagit. No seriously, shoot me now, I can't take any more. I know it's winter but seriously. Jeezhus H Keeriest on a friggin crutch. My damn head hurts.

I got them on ebay, just type in MICRO SURGERY SURGICAL SCISSORS in the search box, there are all kinds of them, the bottom set has carbide inserts in them.

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

I have 5-6 pair for different situations, but my go to scissors are the small 6th finger scissors. didn't like them at first but after a little they just feel natural being there all the time.

I have about 6 pair of scissors myself. I won't use those 6 finger scissors though. My friend loves them. I would poke my eye out with them, if I had a pair. LOLLLLLLLLL.
