Kai scissors are absolutely the best scissors available! This pair was actually a gift for a new sewist and wanted to start her off right. She was amazed at the smooth cut and sharpness. That is what I love too! And they keep that sharp edge (my first pair is still going strong). Found Kai at Road to California in early 2000 and have purchased a variety of types and sizes since then, for myself, family, friends and for swap gifts. Even the kitchen shears are fabulous! You will never go wrong buying any Kai products.

We know ‘garbage in, garbage out’ and we hope when quality goes in, quality comes out. And that extends to the tools I use. KAI scissors are the best (and I have used a number of brands) and I won’t sew without them!

I have the pointed tip scissors in this size, but I have to say the blunted tip is even a better scissor. It’s even more versatile

I love these scissors. I already own a smaller version of these and I wanted another one to be kept near my machine. So, I ordered the larger version.

I love my blunt tip scissors for cutting out appliqué and reverse appliqué. They get into small spaces without poking a hole into the fabric, like a sharp tipped pair of scissors would do. Like all of the Kai scissors I own, they are super comfortable to hold, very lightweight and extremely sharp. One comment for someone with larger hands - the finger holes may not be large enough. I have very small hands and they fit comfortably, but I wonder whether they would fit as well for large hands.

Sewists know there's always that one pair of scissors that's next to the machine. You grab them without thinking, and probably use them occasionally for things they're not really built for.
These are my new go-to, and they're excellent at more of those little tasks. Small enough to grab for thread-snipping. Robust and round-tipped for trimming seam allowances. And super-sharp for precision. Kai wins again!
