Sew Essential! Tips, Tricks and Notions #3: Snip, Snip

2013 July 14

My Fiskars are amazing, and they came from my mom – which makes them even better! These scissors are really useful for clipping threads, but they do a whole lot more than that. They have a spring loaded handle – so they are easy on your hands. The blades are super-sharp, and cut all the way to the tip – so they are really great for clipping and grading seams.

They can also double as an impromptu seam ripper. The tip of the blade works well if you have a small seam to pull out and are too lazy busy to get the seam ripper. I have not had a lot of success using them for cutting out pattern fabric, the blades are too short. But I can imagine they would be amazing for applique – especially small precise shapes. I also like that they have a safety latch, because these are really sharp (can I say again, REALLY sharp!) and I would never want my kids to find them open.

You can find something similar here - but I can’t seem to find a link to the exact ones that I have. All of them seem to have stainless steel blades, and the ones that I own have Titanium Nitride blades. What are your favorite scissors?

Disclaimer: I was not paid by Fiskars for this review, these scissors really are great!

    So glad you like them. I love my pair = which is why you got yours! Just don’t drop them point down :( on the tile floor! The point kind of loses something! :)
