I've had these scissors for many years and I can't live without them. I love the spring squeezie handles so I don't have to take off my quilting gloves to make them work. The fine point, small curved blades allow me to nip the threads right at the fabric without cutting the fabric. I also use the blades to pull up bobbin threads at my machine. These work great with the Perfect Spot Tool Holder magnet always keeping them exactly where I need them!
