    scissors....

    After reading about the Kai scissors here a few months back, I've been looking for them to see whether or not they might be something to buy. Well, yesterday in my pursuit of finding the border fabric I wanted, when I stopped in the third quilt shop of the afternoon, they had the fabric! My husband was over on the notions wall, which is probably about 40 feet long, maybe more, so I headed there next. Lo and behold! Kai scissors! I ended up buying the 6" pair. As I was having a hard time deciding between that size and the 5" size, my husband surprised me and he bought me the 5" size as well! These are going to be nice as I'm in the midst of cutting out all those applique pieces. They are probably the most comfortable pair of scissors I've ever used.......the larger size come in right/left handed versions, but the smaller are just generic ones.

    I love my Kai scissors. I also have the 6" I'm using for my applique and they are very comfortable and the sharpest scissors I've ever had!

        They really weren't that bad of a price, I was surprised. The 6" were $21 and the 5" were $20.

                    I was so bummed yesterday on my shop hop. I asked for the Kai scissors (so I could have a second size) and she looked like what are those? I bought the other one's in her store

                    Now where to get them? Oh a left hand pair for my dd.

                      I haven't seen these scissors. Are they all metal? The gingers I have now are covered in plastic. The work well for me, but I'm looking for something a bit, I don't know, heavier? It just feels like mine will break if I need to cut anything really thick.

                        Prices directly from KAI are the same as I paid at Amazon and they have free shipping. They carry true lefty scissors, but I only see them in a couple sizes.

                          Thanks! I bought some left hand fiskers for her but they are so tight she doesn't like using them.

                            The ones I bought are not heavy at all, but they are very well made. They are the 5" and 6" size and you did not get a choice of right/lefthand, or I'd have bought the lefthanded ones. I bought this size because I wanted them to use w/applique. I think I could use the 6" ones for when I make Monkeyman another shirt as well. Otherwise, any fabric I cut is w/my rotary cutter!

                              I should have stayed off this thread! I just went to KAI and ordered the thread snips and 4" curved blade scissors and some scissor covers! I'M SUCH AN ENABLER.......even to myself! What the heck, I deserve the best.
