Hi fyshstykr,

I like Dr. Slick scissors. I also have a pair of Cutie Cut scissors made in Germany. Cutie Cut makes barber and sewing scissors. I have had them for 30 years and don't know where you can buy them. Swiss, German or Japanese made scissors would be my first choice.

I almost forgot the Ceramic scissors. I have not seen or used a pair. I would also be interested in hearing from anyone who has used a pair. I was thinking they may be good to cut braided Spectra fishing line. Nippers don't cut Spectra line very well.

Frank

Hi Frank, thanks for the post.

I have an older pair of Slicks also, straights with the serrated edge, I could probably get by just fine with them for a while.

I like my Anvils, straights with a flat edge, and open finger holes, wish my Slicks had open finger holes, they would feel so much more comfortable to me.

Yes, but I like to keep my scissors in my hand at all times, I hate putting them down, then picking them up over and over, and they always seem to get lost in the pile of materials. The open loops are very comfy and you can adjust them for a better fit.
It takes a little getting used to, but is much more convenient for me, and saves a little time.
"If you try this be careful until your used to it, if you get an itch near your eyes, don't poke yourself with the scissor points."
