I seem to use my Kai scissors more than the Fiskars, however, I also have a pair of very small Kai which I do not like as they seem very flimsy.  I use a very old pair of Singer scissors solely for cutting paper.

I have to admit to being pretty sceptical about the newspaper listing @classical retro as whenever I look at them there seems to be odd selections that smack of influence other than testing. Not the case here though.

I have their first 3 myself albeit my Kai shears have micro-serrations (even better I think) but I'd agree with the order. Actually I have other brands too (Karen Kay Buckley for example) so I might not have included the Fiskars Amplify as mine blunted in only a couple of months of using them for cutting lycra while my Westcott Titanium Ultra Smooth were half the price and are still going strong after miles of lycra cutting.

If anyone with self-sharpening facilities would like my Fiskars for the cost of postage, they are welcome to them.

Trying to coax myself back into making rather than just looking and dreaming!
