It's no wonder these...
, December 22, 2010
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!...
, October 8, 2011
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.

Compact and portable, no more bulkiness! You can carry this in your pocket and
have it double as a self defense weapon

These are very good scissors...
, May 7, 2010
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
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

- Not an awkward...
, January 31, 2012
- 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
- Feel awkward to use at first but eventually becomes easier - maybe try not to
hold the handles roughly.
