The Non-Stick Micro Serrated Scissors by Tim Holtz and Tonic Studios have all-purpose blades that won't get gummed up when cutting adhesives. They are rust- and corrosion-resistant. The micro-serrated edge works great when you want to cut fine details. These scissors slice through all types of material with ease, whether you're cutting sheet rubber, adhesive-backed papers or vinyl. The brightly-colored Kushgrip handles are extra large, making it easy for right- or left-handers to use, and reducing hand fatigue. When you're done cutting, cap your scissors off with the included plastic protective cover for safe storage and keep your blade sharp. These scissors were used at the Creative Escape 2008.
Is it wrong to say that I am in love with a pair of scissors? Well, wrong or not, I just can't help myself. These are the very best scissors I've ever used for paper crafting. The serrated edge makes all the difference. The cushion grips really do keep your hand from tiring so easily. I've had covers for my scissors before but this one actually "snaps" into place and doesn't slide off. I'm thrilled to own these and honestly don't know if I will ever use anything else for my detail work now that I've experienced these fantastic scissors. Thank you Tim Holtz!
I've purchased more scissors than I care to admit, but I'm happy to share that I've found the cream of the crop with these Tim Holtz all-purpose babies.
Four things I LOVE about them:
1) The blades don't get gummed up when cutting adhesives
2) The blades have fine-tipped points for precision cutting
3) The blades were able to cut through the ends of brad prongs (I'd be careful using them with thicker metal and I'm not going to try just for this review...sorry:)
4) The colored handles are visible on the most cluttered of surfaces.
It only took me a few tries to get adjusted to the large handles (that's what makes them great for right or left-handers).
Thanks Tim, these are GREAT scissors!

I own two pairs of these, one in my tote and one in my at-home tools. They're SO good, I want to make sure I have a backup pair!! The handle is comfortable. The non-stick coating on the blades is quite good. The serrated edge is sharp and has cut through everything I've asked of it. My first pair is over a year old and shows no wear and no warping. The only reason I own any other pair of scissors is that the serrated edge is no good for detail cutting on paper.
These scissors are so good that I had to order a pair for my husband!! He needed non-stick scissors and LOVES these.
I didn't think I even needed a new pair of scissors as I've collected stationery for about 20 years and have millions, but I watched a video on scrapbook.com and decided to get them to see what the fuss was about and I am not disappointed. These cut through everything you can think of, I use them them for everything (probably a no-no but whatever :P). They cut through brads nicely too when the ends are too long and stick out (when near the edge of tiny embellishments) which I love. So glad I got these. They're a dream to use.
I got these sissors a few weeks ago and they are the best of all the sissors I have ever bought. I have arthritis and fibromyalgia, so I get tired easily and my hands cramp with smaller sissors. Using sissors with larger finger holes is more comfortable, but makes it difficult to make fine detail cuts. When I saw these sissors, I knew I had found the best of both worlds and I was right! They cut beautifully and my hands do not cramp. The blades are very sharp and the adhesives do not stick to them. Thank you Tim Holtz!
No, seriously. THE best. Period. I love, love, love them.
For the first time ever, the scissored challenged person than I am cut an oval by HAND without getting funny jagged bits.
I think it's the large handles. They also do an excellent job getting into teeny places due to the pointed ends.
My formerly favorite scissors have been relegated to the crochet bag, to snip yarn. I've threatened every member of my family with bodily harm if they remove these from my scrap desk, and have considered chaining them there.
Yes, they're really that good!!!
I previously purchased Tim Holtz mini scissors and loved them for fussy cutting. These 7 inch scissors are my new "best friends"! I reach for them every time! They sharpen themselves each time you cut with them because of the serrated edge. I plan to purchase his even larger 9 inch shears for big projects. They even wipe clean from sticky adhesives!
I love these scissors for crafting- cuts everything. Also love them for gardening. Can reach into small spaces and easily snip. Have bought them as gifts for friends who all later thank me and tell me they love them. Great scissors for older kids, easy for them to use because of the wide handles.
