    Yep, I copied that from an older thread. Ryan likes them, so I wanted to get a pair for myself and them forgot about them again... They seem nice for XL hands.

    9 1/2" ERGONOMIX® SHEARS

    KAI® model 5240 dressmaking style shears with a 4" cutting length

    The shear handles are ergonomically designed to place the hand in correct alignment for ease of cutting and are made of Santoprene®, a soft thermal rubber, that is chemically bonded to the blades to prevent contamination. The handles are also slightly larger than the 5210 for larger and gloved hands.

    The blades are made of AU6 Japanese stainless steel with Vanadium giving them a Rockwell of 54 to 58 HRC. The shear blades are held together with a hex nylon-insert locknut that keeps the shears tight to prevent them from loosening up during use.

    Recommended uses:
    For difficult to cut materials
    Food safe for cutting up poultry, meats, and vegetables(FDA approved dyes in handles)
    All fabrics, sewing, and trimming operations
    Household use (shears are dishwasher safe)
    Meets most hobby and craft needs
    Gardening and floral arrangements

    Typically last 2-3 times longer than other brands of Shears

    Does this mean I can ship them directly to you for sharpening? I am going to get the 9.5 ergonomix and also that small airline approved one.

    Now, there's a challenge. I just did some cake servers, but I think I will pass on the scissors
