I already owned the smaller version of these so getting the larger pair was a no brainer. They literally cut through everything. I bought multiple pairs because I didnt want the one in my craft room to go missing ;)
These are the best scissors and equally as good as the smaller version! I own 2 pairs of the smaller, only because I find I misplace them under project papers etc and I intend on ordering another of this size as well!! Superior product Tim Holtz!
There are things I love about these scissors and things I really don't care for. Unfortunately, the things I don't like about them pretty much overshadows what I do like. I like the feel of the handles when you are using them. The soft grip is very comfortable, which comes in handy if you have a lot of cutting to do. I really wish the blades weren't serrated. I use them for card making and you can see the serrations in the paper after cutting. But, the thing I really don't like about these scissors is that they are horrible for detail cutting. Trying to get these puppies to turn in small, tight places is like trying to turn the Titanic. Maybe they're just not made for detail work though. Will continue to use them, but going to give the Elizabeth Craft detail scissors a try.
I admit it, I am a scissor hoarder. And when it comes to Tim Holtz scissors, I saw May Flaum using them in a video and I knew they had to be mine. I cannot give you specifics as to WHEN they make a better scissor cut but I keep them close by and use them often. I do a lot of mixed media and they go thru chipboard and heavier materials like butter. I love, love, love them.
