Kai 7230: 9-inch Professional Shears


Product Description

The KAI 7230 - 9" Professional Shear is ideal for thicker, more difficult fabrics.  The 7000 Professional Series, 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", is considered a lighter shear, yet long enough for standard sewing projects.  Most people compare this shear to the KAI 7250 10" shear.  When compared, the KAI 7230 is better suited to people with smaller hands or desire lighter weight.
*NOTE:  The difference between the KAI 7230 9" and KAI 7250 10" 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 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.

    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.

  6. 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.

    Posted by on Aug 1st 2018

    The best scissors in the market

  9. Perfect Hand Fit and Durable Edge 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 18th 2018

    I have an Upholsterer that was trying to use a smaller scissor and suggested he try a KAI 7230. The price is right, he said. Next time I stopped in to sharpen his scissors I sharpened several pair but not either of the 7230's. Sharpening is my livelihood and eventually I'll get to sharpen those but in the meantime, one happy Customer. Just ask Sid's Fine Upholstry if you want to hear it from him. Ha!

  10. My favorite 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 14th 2018

    Not only are the scissors the best I have ever owned but the company has excellent customer service. My daughter had purchased Model 7280 11-inch shears as a gift for me but they were too big for my hand. Kris (at Kai) advised me to exchange them for Model 7230 9-inch shears with serrated edge. They made the exchange easy and happily the smaller shears are perfect for me.
