Kai 7170: 6 2/3 inch Professional Scissor


Product Description

The Kai 7170, 6 2/3 inch scissor is an all-around, powerful cutting tool.  The blade is made of a high-carbon stainless steel that ensures a sharp cut, all-the-way to the tip.  It also features large handles made of "Elastomer" soft plastic, which are designed for better leverage and ease of handling while cutting.  

Additionally, the Kai 7170, like the Kai 7150, is an ideal size for tasks such as general trimming, cut-work, or any task where larger shears would be too bulky, but cutting power is still desired and necessary. 

Again, as with the Kai 7150, the Kai 7170 is also a popular size scissor for use in your sewing/quilting kit when taking classes, and it works great when doing take-along projects as well.

The 7000 series scissors, including the 7170, are made of a high carbon, hardened stainless steel.  The addition of carbon allows for a steeper cutting angle, giving the scissor a sharper, finer edge.  The carbon also allows the finer edge to be more durable, which in-turn, extends the cutting life of these professional scissors. 

Free shipping for orders in the USA. Additional shipping fee for international orders.

    This is my third pair of scissors and I love them. They cut thru fabric so smooth and easy. Love the smaller size. Great for cutting out applique pieces.

    I have owned many brands of scissors - nothing can come close to the functionality of the Kai professional scissors. If you want the best and want to make life easy for yourself - buy Kai.

    I have purchased several different Kai sized shears from this company and can speak highly and professionally of both service and product. Kai are the best shears I’ve ever used. It’s impossible to use any other shear so feel compelled to buy all sizes!

    The professional series of Kai scissors are such a pleasure to use. I will never go back to any other kind of scissor.

  9. KAI 7170 - BRAVO! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 25th 2016

    Finally!!! I've been waiting for KAI to make other scissors using high-carbon stainless steel. They have the exact feel as my 7230 shears.

  10. Kai 7170 is outstanding 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 3rd 2016

    That's not hyperbole--although the 5000 series are excellent, the 7170's balance and smoothness makes you understand the value of a truly superlative tool.
