New Scissors

I've been threatening for a bit then made my mind up and bought some following a review.  But they came from the USA and would not arrive while around the 7th February and I wanted them for the first project of 2019.  So I bought these in the meantime.

When I opened the box they seemed a bit heavy, which put me off, but I tried them yesterday afternoon, never even noticed the weight, they are so flipping sharp after the old ones.  I am well impressed, especially considering the price.  I've had one set when buying a sewing machine and even brand new they were never as good as these.  The ones that are coming are Ginghers, which also have good reviews. 

I did ask my sister for some for Christmas, not seen her yet, so I just might have another lot coming.  My cup runneth over <3

The description says Sharp & Precise: ideal for all kinds of demanding cutting tasks at home. For effortless cutting of leather, fabrics, packaging material, plastic bags, thin and soft material which surely is abuse of dressmaking scissors, but at that price...........
