Questions & Answers


Can this cut through popsicle sticks?

Asked by Char May 4, 2021

Can these scissors be used as poultry shears?

Asked by richard10934 March 9, 2021

I would look for something kitchen grade instead.

Can this cut PVC Wall Panels

Asked by anon August 3, 2020

I'm pretty sure they can. I'm not up for trying it, but they are tough and sharp, and when you are done, they will come apart (a socket head shoulder bolt and a nyloc secure the hinge) so you can hone them back to sharp. If you were installing, for example a PVC shower surround, I think they'd do the job of trimming the panels quite nicely. Of course you can just score the straight cuts with a utility knife and snap but for irregular shapes and circles, yeah, these would be good for that.

Are they available in left hand?

Asked by Bmoo December 19, 2019

Yes it does !

Would these cut insulation?

Asked by dc July 23, 2019

Yes. You may also look at one with longer blades for quicker cuts.

Will this cut the 3" foam?

Asked by Boomer April 28, 2019

Yes I used them to cut through 3” foam. They are great scissors. I’ll definitely be buying more!

Can these be used to cut heavy leather - 3mm thick?

Asked by abc123 December 5, 2018

They might work. However, you may need to sharpen them if used excessively, I think.

Can I use these scissors to cut pennies

Asked by Lakeview January 20, 2018

I make leather wallets and holsters and did not try to cut a penny.

What country are these made in?

Asked by worker October 27, 2017

Don't know, maybe China.

Crescent Wiss Scissors
Used about three times. On the fourth the orange handle broke. The metal shaft does not go into the handle far enough.

We purchased these Wiss 8-1/2 in. Home and Craft Scissors to cut the fiberglass 6 ounce cloth we're using to fiberglass our ply on frame 20' LOA, 8' Beam boat we're building in our backyard. The scissors are excellent for this type of work and we recommend them for fiberglass cloth and mat cutting.

good until they broke
The metal blade only goes down into the plastic handle about an inch or two. This causes a weak point. The blade broke right out of the handle.

Just a perfect size reasonably priced scizzor for the kitchen. Never know when you have to open a package of Mozzarella cheese.

Worked great for my task
Considered purchasing a utility knife to cut air conditioner pads. When I reached for utility knife I noticed the scissors. I decided to buy the scissors and that made my job safer and easier. Nice to have the cutting tools next to each other so as to choose for proper task.

The best house scissors I have ever had
Having good scissors in the house is a must. This scissors is one of the best scissors you might have. I absolutely love them. The size can satisfy most of my needs in the house. Blades are made from stainless steel, strong and precise and are connected together by adjustable pivot, so you can adjust the cutting "tension" to your comfort if you wish. Handles are from soft on touch vinyl, along inside perimeter where fingers are touching is wider lip, so that even when I cut cardboard box and pressed harder, my fingers did not hurt and scissors did not leave any pressure imprints on my hand and fingers. So far the scissors cut everything. I cut with them cardboard, paper, jeans fabric and piece of very fine silk fabric which usually is difficult to cut. They are very comfortable to work with. Also, between both handles is a small bump functioning as a “spacer” so your fingers don’t get squeezed between both handles while cutting. Although scissors are made strong, they don’t feel heavy and cutting action is very smooth and easy.

Solid pair of scissors, I keep them in the shop. I've used better shop scissors in the past though.
