Classic design but watch the price.
October 11, 2018
Not a bad pair of shears, classic old school design.
I purchased these for my wife Aug/2018 for 14CAD. After reading reviews I also purchased a pair of KAI 7230s off eBay for 56CAD delivered from Japan. The KAIs are worlds better imo (smooth action, comfortable and super sharp) but at 4x the price this is a consideration (it was even more on Amazon).
I noticed that the price of these fiskars are now just over 30CAD!!! (almost as much as their famed Ginghers now 36CAD on Amazon). The KAIs are still the same price I paid on eBay in Aug.
Personally, I would skip the fiskars go for the KAI 7230 especially at the current price point.
My mum was a professional seamstress and trained clothes designer. When I was little, she was always reminding me NOT to use her shears for anything other than fabric. Now I know why.
