Really like these heavy duty shears. As they are made by Klein I was confident they would be good. I worked for AT&T for 32 years and we used Klein cable shears and our technicians really loved them. I liked that these are larger then the cable splicers shears we used. Perfect for cutting just about anything around the house. So far I've used these to trim my potted plants, cutting heavy vinyl landscape edging, cutting lamp cord and for cutting open items packaged in heavy plastic.

These are a great pair of shears. They are very sturdy and feel like they are made to last. I’ve used them on different types of clothes/rags, cardboard, vinyl, plastic, and canvas and they had no trouble what so ever. I do a lot of crafting and these are my go to scissors. I really like how wide they can open up. They’ve remained sharp and I’ve used them quite a lot already but I have no doubt that they would sharpen nicely if needed. I have gotten some glue on them but they cleaned right up with some goo remover. Overall I really like and recommend these and a bonus is they’re from the U.S.A.

This is old school quality and dependability when it comes to a pairs of sturdy shears. I had been using regular household scissors in my shop for various projects. They eventually lost its edge and the handle broke. These shears are sturdy and heavy duty. It is one piece construction and will last for years. Regardless of what I cut from regular paper to cardboard for a layout, it cuts easily and accurate. You will not go wrong with this Klein Shears.

These Kline shears are definitely heavy duty. I was able to cut through thick cardboard, thin plastic, and even copper sheets very easily, The large size gave me plenty of leverage to cut without any struggle. The construction and design appears to be very high quality and would expect this set to last many years. This is one of those tools that will most likely be passed down to the next generation (or two) of general contractors in my family.

Oh boy, I never thought I would get excited about a pair of scissors! These are superb! What a difference after using the cheaper brands you can buy in the big box stores. I can easily cut through 20 layered sheets of copy paper and 12 layers of somewhat heavy duty material that you use for the outdoor coverings of pillows. In the photo, they cut through a braided bunch of layers of a lighter material. And I now use them for cutting through cardboard when breaking down delivery boxes.

I got the shears and thought about the ways I could test them. Mostly leaning toward everyday usage.first thing I liked was that they are carbon steel and can be honed/sharpened when the time comes, next is comfort, these shears have large grips (also models for Lefties), for occasional use to open packages etc I give a thumbs up. however, for a lot of cutting through tougher products such as dense & thick cardboard I would need padding. Product description does say you can use it in kitchen with chicken, but I prefer to use a fork with my chicken ;) The shears come very sharp with a moderate amount of tension (adjustable either tighter or looser). very sturdy, well built.

This is exactly the type of shears, scissors that I have been looking for. These shears are well made and have a little weight to them, but balance very well in your hand. The screw that holds the shears together is adjustable so you are able tighten or loosen depending on the project you have. Cutting is a breeze with these shears and they cut very easily. I am very satisfied with these and definitely recommend.

These are working great for a variety of home projects I’ve been working on! I’ve been crafting a lot with old t-shirts to restyle them for fun summer styles. These scissors have been perfect for cutting smoothly through the fabric. I also have been cutting some templates for home repair out of old cardboard boxes and they are making sharp easy cuts in that texture as well. The metal weight is very nice and sturdy - I love the shape of the handles and the size fits my hand comfortably.
