Kai 5210L: 8-inch True Left Handed Shears


Product Description

The KAI 5210L TRUE Left-Handed, 8" scissor has ergonomically soft handles which allow fatigue-free cutting on all types of fabric.  Additionally, because of its soft handles and hardened stainless-steel blades, the 5210L can cut through multiple layers of denim with ease while trimming cottons without any fabric slippage.  

The KAI 5210L True Left-Handed scissors feature both a left-handed grip and left-handed blades.  This allows ease of use with your left hand, while also allowing you to see precisely where you are cutting. 

Please Note the difference between a 5210L True Left-Handed vs the 5220L:

The 5210L is a genuine left handed scissor with left-handed blades - and will not work if a left-handed person is used to working with right handled scissors, as they will actually be pulling the blades away from each other - preventing the cutting action from taking place properly. This will give the effect that the scissors are dull as they will fold the fabric.

The 5220L is a left handled scissor (the handles themselves fit in the left hand) with right handed blades. These scissors have been designed to work for a left-handed person who has learned to cut with right-handed scissors.

  1. Very nice scissor 5 Star Review

    I received this pair for a replacement. They are fabulous. Very happy with the cut and ease of use.

  2. Turns out I did better with the Lefty shears 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 17th 2020

    I ordered the True Left Handed Shears because I am suddenly taking a new interest in sewing, and I have never had a great pair of scissors. Somebody told me Kai scissors were indeed great. -- I was disappointed with the True Left scissors. They chewed fabric back near the hinge. They snipped beautifully, but I could only effectively use half of the blade. So I wrote to customer service and told them I thought I got a defective pair of scissors. They got RIGHT back to me with a great explanation. Mr. Customer Service asked if he could send, along with replacement True Left shears a pair of right-handed blades with a left-handed grip, since chances are good that when I learned to cut with scissors, the scissors I learned to cut with were right handed, and that squeeze action I do is what is making the True Left scissors mess up. -- He was right! The model I kept (and love!) are the 5220L 8-1/2" Lefty Dressmaking Shears. -- This is a company I will happily do business with again and again.

  6. Great products & service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 22nd 2020

    I bought these for my left handed daughter, but it turns out that she prefers to cut fabric with her right hand. Kai exchanged the product for me & she loves her nes shears! This is a company that I will buy from again because of the high level of service I received.

  7. Amazing Scissors! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 14th 2020

    I really thought that scissors are just scissors with little real difference between them. Was I wrong? These are super sharp and amazingly comfortable to use. I will only buy Kai scissors in the future!

  8. Best ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 14th 2019

    As a textile artist and seamstress scissors are one of the most important tools I have. These are a great size, weight and so sharp. Best buy I've made in a long time.

  9. Serious Shears 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 3rd 2019

    These are the best shears that I have ever used.
    First true left handed. Others were right handed with left handed handles, not the same. Cutting is true and easy. Heavy duty, but not to heavy. Mostly I'm cutting thick, tight weave material for aquarium filter pads. First use was over 100 ft. of cuts with no hand fatigue

  10. Back again! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 29th 2018

    I bought a pair of these 30 years ago. I have loved them and wore out the handles. The blades still worked. I love that I found them again online so I could get a new pair and have them just as fantastic as the first pair.
