  1. Best scissors ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 23rd 2020

    As a sewist , quilter, and teacher in my studio I use and supply exclusively Kai scissors! I appreciate the smooth, clean, cutting and the light weight feel in my hand! My students agree, as they find perfect results with Kai. It’s important for myself and in my teaching to use tools that make the task easier and look better. The value is also great—in that they are in the price range one would expect to pay for quality scissors —maybe even less! Thanks Kai —you’ve changed my cutting experience and that of my students forever!❤️✂️

  2. Love these scissors! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 12th 2020

    I first heard about Kai scissors while watching a training video by designer Angela Wolf. Since she recommended them, I thought I should give them a try. I needed a good brand of scissors for my sewing school and didn't want cheap ones. I am happy to say I have no regrets in choosing Kai brand scissors! Love, love, love them and so do my students!

    This was a gift for a new beginner sewer.

    These shears are perfect for my business. I work primarily with up-cycled knits and they cut beautifully, never pull or snag and the fabric doesn't slip - even when cutting silks and organza. I have four other styles of Kai shears and love all of them.

  8. Best Shears ever 5 Star Review

    This are the best shears I have ever used and I've been sewing for over 60 years. Perfect cut every time and light in my hands. Purchase them and you will not be sorry. Have turned several of my sewing buddies on to them and they are just as thrilled with them and I am.

  9. everyday scissors 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 15th 2017

    Kai scissors are my favorite for sewing projects and I own several pairs. This time what I needed was a pair of everyday scissors... I know I'm not supposed to but I use these for paper and plastic (even that thick plastic a lot of products are packaged in) and they have held up very well! I have never used these for cutting plastic/nylon zippers so I don't know how they would handle something that hard. I like these scissors so much for everyday tasks that I got a second pair for work!

  10. Best scissors ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 9th 2016

    I have been sewing and quilting for years. Having a good pair of scissors is a must! I have used other brands and was satisfied. I was introduced to Kai scissors at a quilt shop in Waco, Tx. After I held and used the Kai scissors, I was sold! There is a huge difference in the smooth cutting and handling of the Kai scissors! I have several different sizes of them now, as well as the rotary cutter! You will not regret purchasing Kai products!!! You will also receive them very quickly.... Mine have all come within 3-5 days!!! Many of my sewing/quilting friends have used my scissors....they now all have their own Kai scissors!
