Kai 7230: 9-inch Professional Shears


Product Description

The Kai 7230 is the 9-inch professional scissor, ideal for thicker, more difficult fabrics.  The 7000 series scissors, including the 7230, 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 allows the finer edge to last longer.  This gives the 7000 series a better ability to cut thicker fabrics and allow for easier use.
The Kai 7230, being a 9-inch, is considered a lighter scissor, yet long enough for standard sewing projects.  Most people compare this scissor to the Kai 7250 10-inch scissor.  When compared, the Kai 7230 is better suited to people with smaller hands or desire lighter weight.
*NOTE:  The biggest difference between the KAI 7230 9-inch and KAI 7250 10-inch is that you gain the extra inch in the handle, not the blade.
Free shipping for orders in the USA. Additional shipping fee for international orders.

  1. Best scissors ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 8th 2020

    I cannot believe how these scissors cut. Been sewing for many years and I’ve never owned a pair of scissors like these. I’m sold on them and recommend them to all my fellow sewers.

    I have multiple pairs of Kai professional series scissors.
    These are hands down the best I’ve ever used.
    I am a sewer and I go through the cheap scissors, but not these.

  5. Best I've ever used. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 5th 2019

    I've been a seamstress for over 40 years. A friend of mine, who is in the Industry suggested I try a pair of Kai scissors. I purchase a small pair first and loved them. Then, the Professional. I wish I knew about these 40 years ago.

  8. Sharpest in my sewing kit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 16th 2018

    I have 2 pairs of Kai dressmaking scissors, long ( 700 series and shorter 500 series) For years I have been buying scissors that never last until I discovered Kai scissors. They stay sharp and are beautifully weighted making them easy to use on any fabric. A quality product from a company providing excellent service.

  10. Worth Every Penny 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 9th 2018

    I do a lot of quilting and I recently needed to replace my sewing scissors. I had seen Kai scissors used in a quilting video recently, also I knew of the company as my husband (who is the cook in the family) recommended their knives as superior. I decided to make the not-inconsiderable investment in the Kai 9-inch Professional Shears and I don't regret it. They are the best scissors I've ever owned. Very balanced and cut through fabric like butter. Outstanding and worth every penny.
