Poor quality and design
I used these scissors only a few times. They broke
    Handle broke
    Handle broke, see photograph. Red part of the handle broke, cheap material
      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...
        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.

          Need a sharp scissor to cut an old sisal rug to fit into the trash container. This scissor was perfect; it cut through the rug quickly without a lot of effort.
