  1. Best Shears ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 29th 2018

    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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

    Kai scissors are always ready for you. Confident every time you pick them up that they will be comfortable, sharp and ready to make quick work of your cutting.

  5. Awesome...as Usual 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 16th 2016

    I previously ordered Kai 5220 (8 1/2" shears) and found them too big for my hand. The current order for the 5210 8" shears was a perfect choice and I couldn't be happier! Kai shears/scissors are the only cutting tools I now own and use. They are truly awesome!

  6. Awesome Product and Customer Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 7th 2016

    so on the strength of online reviews I decided to take a chance and order a pair of 5210 Kai scissors. imagine my surprise when i opened the package! the scissors were smooth, comfortable and cut through fabric like nothing i'd ever seen. Two days after i received them, i happened to attend the LA modern quilt con and had an opportunity to hold and try the professional series and couldn't believe the difference. I called Kai the following business day and asked if I could exchange my initial purchase. Kris was amazing and agreed to the exchange. I am so pleased that i took a chance and have been sharing the experience with all my sewing friends. I would highly recommend the scissors to everyone.

  8. Great scissors so far 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 30th 2015

    I've only had these a short time but they are excellent. Glide across the fabric and aren't too heavy for my arthritic hands.
