The Cutter Bee scissors are cute & compact for all your scrapbooking needs. The precision-ground tips are great for precision cutting and expert at cutting right up to the tip and the unique comfort grip handle is easy on your hands. Includes a protective safety snap-on safety cover.
About 6 years ago, my friend Sara bought these scissors and raved about them. I was not so sure because I have always had a hard time finding scissors because I am left handed. But, I took a chance and bought these and could not have been happier about a scrap purchase.
These scissors are great. The holes are padded and ambidextrous which is really important when you live in a right-handed world. The blades are SHARP and the tip is really pointed. It also comes with a blade cover - which I recommend using if you don't want to poke yourself.
To date, this has been the best scrap purchase I have ever made. It's been over 6 years and I am still on my first pair - which have not ever needed to be sharpened. I now have a couple of pairs of these - the original pair for my scrap room, a second pair for cropping on the go and a pair for use elsewhere in the house. I could not recommend these more!!
I was wrong! I (meaning my daughter) lost my Cutter Bee scissors a couple of months ago and I decided I could live without them. I haven't had much time to scrap lately, so i thought my decision was a good one. Then tonight I had to cut out a dozen quarter page size outlines of Christopher Columbus' ship for a third grade project (my daughter's - not mine). Intricate waves at the bottom of the ships, furled sails and ship flags - beautiful representatives of the Santa Maria. And nearly impossible to cut out with my big clunky scissors or her little scissors. It took an hour and looks like I did them with a hacksaw! Finished the project, put her to bed and went right to scrapbook.com to order a new pair. Can't wait to get them and this time I will lock them up! Great product every crafter should have at their fingertips.
I have an old pair of Cutter Bee Scissors that I have absolutely loved for years. The guard is broken, and the rubber has become a bit sticky with old age, so I thought I'd just buy a new pair. First of all - the new scissors DO NOT have a non stick finish like the old ones had. The scissors are heavier, stiffer, the blade is thicker and the point isn't as sharp. They are still better than most scissors - but they are not the same. The old ones were the best I'd ever used for fussy cutting - the new ones are just meh - I can live without them! I plan on using the guard from the new ones, but they will likely just sit in my drawer, and I won't buy another pair. I will just get my old ones sharpened, and keep them as long as I can. If I'd never had the best, I wouldn't have known what I was missing. I hope Cutter Bee gets some folks reviewing these scissors and sending them the message that they need to go back to their old design. The old ones were produced in Taiwan - the new ones in China. They are very much like my Stampin Up scissors - I wouldn't be surprised if they are made by the same company. They are good scissors - just not the great fussy cutting scissors with non stick finish that Cutter Bee was known for.
I'll confess I am a little disappointed in these scissors overall. After reading so many glowing reviews I chose these over another option I was considering. While they have been great for detail cutting one of the selling points was the positive reviews for the non stick blades. Unfortunately I have found the blades gum up quite easily (much more quickly than my $2 scissors from the office supply store). I was hoping for a good pair of all round scissors but these are not the ones.
I am relatively new to scrapbooking. That being said, I have been using gigantic Fiskars scissors for all my cutting including small precise cutting. I was taking a class at a convention and the teacher said to me, "Oh, no, that will never work!" and asked the class if anyone had small scissors to let me borrow. Well a nice lady in the room let me use her Cutter Bee scissors and immediatley after the class I ran to AC Moore and bought a pair! I didn't realize what a difference they make. They are super sharp and super precise. I can do things with these scissors I thought I couldn't ever do. They make it all possible! Definetly a must-have in every scrapper's arsenal!

These are the only scissors I will use. I have a pair in every color that they offer. These scissors are super sharp. They cut through paper like butter. The tips are also very sharp, which makes it easy for precision cutting. Also, sometimes when I am too lazy to grab my paper piercer, I use the ends to make holes in my paper for brads. These scissors come with a cover for them, so they will not open while you are transporting them and also so that you don't hurt yourself, because like I said even the ends are really sharp. You won't be disappointed if you get a pair of these. They are really worth it!

Cutter Bees? I have two pairs of Cutter Bees. You know how it goes, if one is good two are better. My friend kept telling me I needed a pair of Cutter Bees. She told me at least once a week for about 4 months until...I broke down and bought a pair. Well, I love them. Yes, they are precise and stay sharp, but they also double as a paper piercer. Yipee! I have used them with some intricate clipart and they do an awesome job. For example, I was cutting out the wings of a hawk and I didn't want to 'foul' it up so to speak and the feathers were easy to snip and the precision result was superb!

I have got to tell you, my friend Betty bought these cutter bee scissors for me, and I thought they were just something else I didn't need! Well I use this pair of scissors before I grab any other scissors, they are very sharp, and smooth cutting. and very precise. I misplaced mine one day and started panicking, like I couldn't do another project without them, I place these cutter bee scissors as a high priority on my list of must haves!!!! Can't live without these, you will absolutely love this pair of scissors and I highly recommend
to anyone in need of new scissors!!! Worth every penny!
I wasn't sure if I would like using these scissors, or not, because they are so small and I was used to using bigger scissors. I finally decided to give them a try due to their rave reviews from so many other users, and I am so glad I did! They are so sharp and smooth to cut with. They get into the most tedious tight places to cut, and are amazing! I love that they come with their own protective cover to save little curious hands from getting cut. I can't say enough about how much I love these! I highly recommended them!!
I have tried several pairs of scissors, but when I received these as part of a kit I thought 'oh look another pair of scissors'. Then I used them. Out the door went all of my other scissors because these are the best I have ever seen. I didn't know scissors could cut so perfectly. Now I have these and the titanium (pink) ones!! They cut through the paper as if it was barely there. You will never regret picking these up, and never look back at any other kind again!
