Elegant and practical

These scissors are compact and a perfect addition for when on the go (travelling light but still being able to take few extra things). Excellent manufacturing quality, nice finish, elegant and a pleasure to use. Comes in nicely packaged, suitable as a gift. Felt comfortable both in my hand and my partner's bigger hand. Will buy the bigger version for home use and love that both match in design.

Functional and adorable compact scissors

These scissors are so tiny and yet still functional. They tuck away nicely into the secretary pocket of my travelers notebook. They’re great for travel and crafting on the go. Well worth the price.

Klein handlich und gute Schneidkraft

Diese kleine Schere ist nicht nur entzückend anzuschauen sondern auch gut im schneiden. Große Scheren finde ich oft zu unhandlich, gerade bei feinen arbeiten, diese hat nicht zu viel Spielraum bei den Griffen und ich kann auch klebrige kleinteile damit schneiden.

A Hit!

I gave these as a gift along with the Leather Slip-N-Zip 4 Slots Zippered Pen Pouch, and the recipient absolutely adores the "outfit"!

Scissors on standby

I bought these mini-scissors in addition to the 6.5" ones. The smaller scissors are ... small. They seem very sturdy and well-made. I thought I would use them along with other compact office supplies when I traveled. Of course, with the pandemic, travel isn't happening. So these tools have not seen much action. I need to find other ideas for putting them to use.
