The Kai 7300 is the 12-inch professional scissor that is designed for use on thicker, more difficult fabrics or on multiple layers. It is also considered an ideal length for upholsterers and upholstery projects.
The 7000 series scissors, including the Kai 7300, are made of a high carbon, hardened stainless steel. The addition of carbon allows for a steeper cutting angle, giving the scissor a sharper, finer edge. The carbon also allows the finer edge to be more durable, which in-turn, extends the cutting life of these professional scissors.

I do commercial upholstery for restaurants so I work with heavy vinyls. Up to about a year ago, I used the steel commercial shearers sold by my vinyl wholesaler. Those weigh almost a pound and I was constantly having to sharpen them (every other month). I saw these and was attracted by their weight. I decided to give them a shot loved them. I love them just as much a year later. They're extremely light-weight and comfortable. Despite their light weight, they keep their sharpness. I've accidentally cut fine wire staples and still see no need to sharpen them. They do cost twice as much as my older shearers but these have payed for themselves many times over. I usually never write reviews but I gotta give credit where credit is due and if you do hours of cutting at a time and need a dependable, comfortable pair of shearers, these are the ones for you. Quality, comfort, and elegance all in one.

I've been wanting these professional shears for the longest time. Having had prior experience with other KAI products, I knew these would be great. When opening the package, I was a little intimidated by their size but as soon as I put my hand into the grip and examined them closely...WOW! these mean serious business! Perfectly balanced and so easy to use. They cut through the most challenging fabrics like butter! I first used them to cut out a French Matelasse fabric that would have been a painstaking task with any other scissors but from the very first cut until the end...a total breeze! My hand was not even tired! These new KAI scissors are now my primary pair for my business ... custom couture wedding gowns and high end women's fashions. Thank you KAI for making such outstanding products! No other scissors even come close as to quality, comfort and longevity as yours do. And believe me, I have tried them ALL throughout the past 35 years! Hands down KAI is the best!

I work in the fashion industry, means that I use those scissors all day, every day.
I don't have any problem at all cutting any kind of fabrics, from denim/heavy millenium to silk, chiffon, etc...
Single or multiple layers, I'd try it one cutting 5 layers of denim at the time without a problem, just like butter!. I was afraid after that my scissors are not going to be as good as they was but I was wrong, just keep working as good as always.
You can not be wrong with those!
