It's no wonder these...
It's no wonder these are sold out. They are fantastic! Scissors are usually a pain in the neck to carry along, whether you use a pencil case or prefer to carry writing supplies in a pocket of your bag. But for a lot of jobs, it's handy to have them, so you had to kind of suck it up.
These are a great solution, because they just stay out of the way until and unless you need them. Specifically, they eliminate the three greatest sources of irritation that you get if you try to take along some scissors: the awkward shape; the blades that keep nicking and scratching everything (especially since they ALWAYS fall open); and the finger loops, which keep getting in the way when you put stuff back in a pencil case. Sure, maybe they aren't the best if you need to be cutting miles of paper (although they're doing pretty good so far!), and they are clearly not designed for super thick card or even fabric, but then that's true for most pairs of scissors you see out there - those are considered specialized jobs, for which you need other types of tools. But for general paper jobs they can't be beat.

I love these scissors!...
I love these scissors! They're by far more convenient and travel-friendly than any normal pair of scissors out there. I showed these to relatives while I was on vacation, and all of them were in awe, asking where I got them. They're just so handy to have around, throw in a bag, whatever!
As an added bonus: since they look like a pen, airlines don't hassle you if you forget they're in your purse or carry-on. Not that I endorse bringing them purposefully to "test" the airline security workers, but those of you out there who have had nail clippers/trimmers/small scissors confiscated & thrown away because you forgot you had them... well, you know what I'm talking about.

These are very good scissors...
These are very good scissors that cut VERY well. At first it seemed as though getting used to the spaghetti strap handles would be impossible, however after using it a while you no longer notice it, and they feel like normal scissors in the hand. The only downfall to these scissors is that the blades are NOT long enough!!!
However, it clips perfectly into the pen compartment of my messenger book bag, so I will never have to worry about losing it, unlike my other pair of scissors which I lost twice.
overall a good investment

PROS: - Not an awkward...
- Not an awkward shape, fits into pencil cases nicely.
- Attractive design and colour.
- Safer, cap on end of blades.
- Not made for heavy cutting.
- Works well with 'lighter' cutting.
- Clean, sharp cut on paper.
- Loops feel like they may come undone if they're held strongly.
- A good product if used for occasionally trimming or cutting hand outs to size etc.
- Feel awkward to use at first but eventually becomes easier - maybe try not to hold the handles roughly.
