Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit Darn good shears.
Odd that I am asked to rank "ease of Installation" for a pair of scissors, but these are excellent across the board.
Obviously they are made for cleaning up the nap when you have a joint between two pieces of carpet, and with the offset handles, they are perfect for that. But there are many other occasions when scissors with offset handles would be useful, and these are really good quality shears, very sharp, well made, and actually held together with a screw rather than a rivet, so you CAN take them apart to sharpen if and when the need arises.
I like them and I am going to keep them in the locked drawer so that no one else in the house appropriates them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveV Well built and sharp
The offset of these shears allow you a good view of your cutting, but it takes some practice to obtain enough skill to cut a straight line with them. These are not for the one time user nor a novice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by projectdoneyes Superior Cuts with Top Quality Shears
Wow! These Roberts napping shears are the highest quality shears I have ever used. The shears have angled handles so you can hold the shears level with the carpet. These shears have many more uses than just napping as their super sharp top quality German steel construction holds an edge very will. I really like the comfortable cushioned handles of these shears also. In fact I will be buying other Roberts products very soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gerg Works for detail touch up and cutting through backing.
The offset on the handle makes it easy to touch up seams and edges. The blades are stiff enough to cut through backing with ease and seem to hold an edge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beau4u Shears with an angle.
These shears have an angled or for a lack of a better word bent handle or even "offset". They are 8 inches long. I have small to med. size hands so three fingers just fit tight in the bigger handle and my thumb fits fine in the other handle. The offset does make it easier to do precise cutting and yes these are very sharp. These are job specific type shears
