    Rec for a Good Pair of Scissors

    I'm looking for an around-the-house pair of scissors -- not cooking shears. Any recommendations for a good all-arounder? Or a good vendor if I want more specialized items later on?

    Murray Carter sells white steel scissors that you can take a part and sharpen yourself on stones.
    there might be other vendors too.

    For the best cheapest pair of household shears I suggest Kai.

    There's other places that sell them besides that site though.

    You would think Dave M would carry scissors, so we would not have to go to that, uhm, other vendor's web site

    Oh hey while we're talking scissors.....they are like knives in that they don't come very sharp and can be made a whole lot sharper so don't accept those factory edges!

    I still haven't ordered mine either. Why don't you just do a group buy for us Dave Just order half a dozen of these, sharpen them up, and sell them to us.



    Description:
    9 1/2" ERGONOMIX® SHEARS

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