These are pretty nice scissors, but aren't comfortable to hold. That's a deal breaker for me. Also, the handy-dandy little cutter thingie fell short of expectation. It's uncomfortable to hold and use, and the edge that pops out to cut is quite small and hard to align with where you want to make a cut. For better or worse, the quality is very high and these scissors will be in my drawer for a very long time.
