This is the KAI 5220L - 8 1/2" Left-Handed Scissor. Left-handers love the feel of these scissors. Ergonomic grips allow for easy cutting without discomfort to your thumb.
This is the best fabric scissor made for left handed users. Large handle grip and standard blade length. This differs from the True Left scissors, in that the blades are not reversed, but is made to fit comfortably in your left hand. (A right handed scissor with a left handed grip for fatigue-free 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 correctly for a left-handed person that is used to working with right-handed 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.

Very comfortable to hold for long periods of time. Doesn't cramp my hand. Super sharp, cutting fabric feels like cutting through nothing

I have always been a Fiskars customer as far back as I can remember. Being left handed has made my sewing scissors even more important to me. In the past couple years Fiskars changed their left handed scissors design. I called to complain (literally I cannot even cut paper with them) the response was unacceptable. I did some research and discovered Kai. I was skeptical, I tried them reluctantly, and LOVE them! I did expect the worst but am a convert. Sharp, precise, comfortable, lightweight, and affordable.

Great scissor at a great price. These stay so sharp and their lighter weight makes them easy to use. Kai scissors are becoming the "go to" scissors in my sewing, quilting and embroidery groups.

I first purchased the true left handed shears and found I could not cut with them which was very surprising. Kai was very responsive and sent me these shears Kai 5220L with no additional charge. They said try both and send back with ever does not work. I would highly recommend purchasing through Kai. They stand by their product with wonderful customer service.

These scissors are great. They cut beautifully and are wonderful to use. They are precise and cut cleanly.

Originally had the left handed and left cutting. Didn’t like them. Customer service was great and replaced my scissors promptly.

This is very professional scissor. I have used some up class one in target or other box store. It is not a comparison.

I have had left handed scissors before but not as comfortable as these.
