These are the scissors I find most useful in day to day crafting.
Tonic Studios TITANIUM FINE CONTROL CRAFTERS SNIP / SCISSORS 4″ Link on Ebay: https://tinyurl.com/yv6r29rs I use these scissors for fussy cutting and so far they work well. I like the small finger guides at the bottom to give more stability while I’m cutting. I haven’t had these for a long time, so don’t know how well they will hold up, but for now, I like them a lot.
Stampin Up Snips: For some reason, I couldn’t get their website to upload…go to stampinup.com and in the search bar, type snips. If you can’t get their site to work, you could go to ebay and find them there When I’m fussy cutting, these thin blades do an excellent job and I’ve had these scissors for several years and they still work great. The alternative to these would be EK Success Cutterbee scissors. They are supposed to be the same scissors, only marketed by a different company.
EK Success Cutterbee Scissors.…I guess these are no longer sold at retailers, but I did find them on Ebay..here’s the link to them. https://tinyurl.com/92zs6vnt These are supposed to be the same as the Stampin Up snips, and should work the same, and for less money.
Tim Holtz Tonic 5″ Scissors link: https://tinyurl.com/5xj29z3w I use these for cutting red rubber stamps, for cardboard and twine, and they work great. I like the small size, as I find they are lightweight and easy to hold.
Tim Holtz 6 1/2″ Scissors (they made these scissors a little smaller than mine) link: https://tinyurl.com/ck38nas7 These are a little bit sturdier than the 5″ snips and I use them for the same jobs as the 5″ ones. If you are new to crafts, I recommend you buy either the Stampin’ Up snips or the EK Success Cutterbee scissors and one of the Tim Holtz Tonic scissors, as these two scissors should cover all of your scissor needs.
Hay Phi Scissors: link https://us.hay.com/sale/special-offers/phi-scissors/2538553.html?lang=en_US I bought these for when I need a long cut, as when you use a short scissor and need to make a long cut, it’s often not straight and has marks when I start and stop. These are high quality scissors made in Italy and are worth the investment.
