What I use most I also have a pair Miltex that I bought 35 yrs ago.

Goodness. This makes no sense. I'm glad I happened to look back here and see this.
What I typed (or thought I did anyhow) was:

I have a lot of scissors in a lot of brands; Dr. Slick's are good. I recently bought my first pair of tungsten carbide for about $30. Very nice, I like them a lot and use them all the time. For those who do a lot of tying, I don't think you'd be disappointed, they're worth it.

Either but you may use some plumber tape or small piece of plastic bag. Proper tension between the blades helps in cutting.

Thanks Bill. I think I'll peen the end of the pivot screw to keep it from backing out but being the dunce that I am, I don't quite understand where to use the tape or piece of plastic bag.

I'll throw in another vote for Dr. Slick. In particular, I am very fond of the Dr. Slick Microtip scissors. I like being able to cut very clean, especially when tying flies where every wrap counts.
