    I bought my scissors yesterday. I just wanted to imagine Dave's face when he gets a box of scissors and he is trying to grind his own blades.

    Didn't want to start a new thread with this, but just a quick update: Dave ordered these Kai shears for me and sharpened them before he sent them over. They are not only very comfortable for someone with XL hands, they are clearly also the sharpest shears/scissors (I keep forgetting the difference) I ever had. If you need that one pair of really reliable and sharp scissors around the house these are highly recommended. Probably not the first choice for the kitchen, though, because they do not come apart for cleaning. For that I was happy with the Messermeister kitchen shears, but now Dave spoiled me and I may have to look into alternatives there also. The Messermeisters are my shop shears right now anyway. Oh, I have no idea what the Kai shears cost since they were paid out of our bartering account, maybe Dave can chime in here.

    Hey I'm glad to hear that you guys are digging those shears. They're really nothing fancy but are a pretty good bang for the buck upgrade to the normal household scissors.

    Is the green material on those handles plastic or metal?

    It's "Santoprene®, a soft thermal rubber that's chemically bonded to the blades"

    I also have a pair that Dave sharpened. They are great, and I keep it in a special hidden place so that only I can use them. Otherwise, they end up in the 7-year-olds art drawer.
