  1. Share the love 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 9th 2023

    Kai scissors has been my preferred scissor for several years. For Christmas, I made beautiful "scissors cases" from quilting cotton, inserted a new pair of Kai and gifted them to the sewers in the family. I made sure they knew how much I love them.

  2. Best gift ever for anyone who sews 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 4th 2022

    I own several pairs of Kai scissors, so I already appreciate their quality. This pair was a gift to my daughter-in-law. She was amazed at how much better the Kai scissors cut compared to the cheaper but imperfect pair she previously used. She’s another convert to Kai quality.

  4. WOW! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 24th 2021

    Recommended by my sister-in-law. She was ‘spot on’. Scissors are simply amazing. They are sharp, cut smoothly, cleanly & easily. My granddaughter tried them & simply said ‘WOW’. I highly recommend them.

  5. 4 pair of these bad boys were brought by Santa. We could not feel richer. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 7th 2021

    Three grown people in the house and we could never find a good pair of scissors when we needed them. Santa fixed that. We have four pair now, one for each and a spare for the 'things that cut' drawer.

    These are a good weight, well made and keen as can be. We each have our own color, which helps. Shipment was quick and the price is very fair for the quality.

    Our household feels very rich indeed.

    These have handled fine stretch material, sateen, thick cotton and even denim without appearing to dull at all.

    Anytime I need to use scissors I get excited because I know I get to use these. Highly recommend, am constantly bragging about them to coworkers. A True pleasure to use.

  10. Great scissors 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 29th 2020

    I have been using Kai products for sewing for about 6 years. Their scissors cut very smooth and precise. I sew nearly every day and have yet to have to get them sharpened. I only use them on fabric... no paper!
