The KAI 5165 - 6 1/2" scissor is a versatile sewing scissor that is ideal for general trimming on fabrics of all weights. It is great for cutting fusible appliqué pieces and trimming seam allowances. The blunt tip helps to prevent the unintentional piercing of fabrics.
Additionally, these scissors are considered to be "Judy's Favorite," as Judy Kessinger of Fit Nice loves to use them because they, "make you feel so confident that you [can] trim without snipping something you shouldn't!"
As with all our 5000 series scissors, the KAI 5165p's blades are made of a hardened, stainless steel. This allows for a smooth and precise cut, all-the-way to the tip.

I have bought numerous KAI scissors because I know Judy Kessinger personally. She introduced me to KAI and I have never been sorry. I gave away all my scissors and all I use now are KAI as well as their rotary cutters.

would have liked bigger holes I found it uncomfortable, the handles on the shears are more what I am use to using

I am now a loyal Kai customer. I purchased 3 of this line of scissors and I could not be more pleased. I own many of Gingher's, and appreciate that you can send them back to the company for a fee to be sharpened, but I just like the Kai better. They feel good, but more importantly, just give me the control I need in cutting. I have actually seen a difference in the accuracy and beauty of my seams and pattern cuts. Amazing. Love using them.

Now I can trim seams with precision and get closer in because I know I won’t accidentally snip the seam. They are a perfect size and great quality.

Although I've yet to use these scissors as Judy does, they are in constant use near my machines. I appreciate the comfortable handles and the uniform sharpness of the blades.
