Ordinary American scissors become gunky and gooey if you continue to use them to cut adhesive items such as packing tape. Over time, the scissors will become sticky and hard to open. These special AiroFit scissors from Japan are not only ergonomic, but they also feature a special coating that prevents any sticky buildup. Cut through tape again and again without affecting the performance of your scissors. It's an ideal tool for the office, warehouse, and craft makers. Slim and wide handle models are available to accommodate your hand size and preference.
My second review of this product and much more thorough examination. I have this
pair and the smaller handled pair in orange and I have found this item to be
highly superior. Starting with the construction. The scissors with the smaller
handle seen to much weaker. The handle cracked a fell apart after only a few
uses (I have glued it together many times since). While this pair has not been
so frail and to date has not even one slight crack. This pair has seemed sharper
as well. The blades cut with s clean feeling, nice and smooth whereas the other
type seemed rough and not such a nice experience when cutting. I can say this
has to be my favorite pair of scissors I have used. For a few cents less it is a
no brainer which pair I would suggest to purchase. Although the one downfall is
the color selection, I believe pink is the only color this exact style comes in.
This is my first pair of Kokuyo AiroFit Non-Stick Scissors. My hands are medium
size and I found the handles a nice fit which made the scissors very easy to
handle. They seem ideal for light to medium weight paper. I tried them on my 140
lb watercolor paper and while they worked fine, I would probably avoid any long
projects with that combination.
Cannot overstate the awesomeness that are these pairs of scissors. Ordered one
because I hand cut a ton of stuff on a regular basis. Things I frequently wage
war with include tricky stuff like acrylic paper, vinyl transfer paper, card
stock, sticky contact paper, etc. and all of those are no match for these
scissors. Cutting is a breeze. Precise curves and tiny corners are significantly
less scary. Easy to control and maneuver. Reduces hand fatigue and prevents
painful callouses and numbness after extend use, something most regular scissors
don't do no matter how ergonomic they claim to be.
I chose this particular model because it seemed to be on the bigger side, and I
do not regret my choice. If you have medium sized hands like me, this pair is
probably a good match for you. Only shame is that they appear to have this
particular model in just pink!
