10 Scissors You Should Know About




Scissors are no afterthought in the realm of sewing; the right pair of scissors can take customers to new levels of enjoyment and achievement! The latest sewing scissors can handle a large range of tasks & fabrics and, most importantly, they are more comfortable to use! Below are 10 pairs of scissors covering needs for fabric-cutting, embroidery, multi-purpose use, novelty and more that you should know about:


KAI 7205 8" Shear 

Apparel sewist favorite

The KAI 7205 8" Shear is made from high carbon, hardened stainless steel. The addition of carbon allows for a steeper cutting angle, giving the scissor a sharper, finer edge. Swedish blogger and author, Johanna Lu, says the best way to describe KAI Scissors is “like cutting through butter”.


Gingher 8" Knife Edge Bent Trimmers

Fine Italian quality

The knife edge on  Gingher’s 8” Knife Edge Bent Trimmers is incredibly sharp and great to use for cutting layers of fabric. The 200 gram weight of these trimmers is comparably heavier than others on the market, which makes the handle feel better balanced than competing plastic-handled scissors.


Tula Pink 8" Shear

Hand-crafted & fashionable

Customers will absolutely fall in love with the oil slick finish of the 8" Shear by Tula Pink Hardware! It cuts cleanly and adds an unavoidable and unique pop of color to the cutting table. Distributed exclusively by Brewer! Click here to browse the complete Tula Pink Hardware line.


Fiskars Classic No. 8 Bent Scissors

Lifetime guarantee

The iconic orange handle on Fiskars scissors may look familiar from their common use in the classroom, however, the  Fiskars Classic No. 8 Bent Scissor was introduced to the world as a high-quality fabric scissor that redefined the standard for cutting performance! High versatility, durability and ergonomic design maintain these scissors as a fan favorite.


Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Scissors 7.5"

Sharp to the tip

These are the very best scissors for precision fabric cutting such as appliqué and fussy cutting! The magic lies in the micro-serrated blades; they pull fabric into the scissors rather than allowing the fabric to slither away for a pure cut from the joint of the scissor all the way to the tip. Soft and comfortable handles. Protection sheath included.


OESD Embroidery Scissor Kit

Machine embroidery must-have

The  OESD Embroidery Scissor Kit contains all the scissors needed for machine embroidery! 3" Micro Tweezers, 4" Large Ring Curved Embroidery Scissors, 6" Duckbill Appliqué Scissors, 5" Curved EZ Snip with Micro Serrated Blade and 4" Hoop Appliqué Scissors included, all in a zippered and padded case.


Bohin Cats Scissor Display 

Eye-catching design

The colorful, cat-eyed shape of the  3.5" Embroidery Scissor Display, is a sure attention-grabber. 12 scissors in 4 different colors come in the acrylic display. Purrfect!


Shawshank LEDz Light-up Scissors Display

Fun, novelty display

Another best-selling POP scissor display is the LED Light-Up Scissors by Shawshank LEDz! A 2032 battery (included) illuminates the cutting path for added precision. 24 scissors in 3 colors come in the display.

Handi Quilter Batting Scissors

 A quilter's must-have

These scissors were specifically made to cut batting. Long blades cut through wide lengths faster and feature a blunt tip so the scissor does not get tangled in batting. Handles are positioned above the blade so that the user's hand barely grazes the top of the batting while cutting, reducing hand-drag.

 Havel's Snip Eze

Just squeeze to cut

The 4 3/4” “Snip-Eze” Embroidery Scissors are a sewing enthusiast’s must-have tool for snipping threads quickly and cleanly. Lightweight, convenient and easy to use, these snips are perfect for tired or arthritic hands. Curved tips fit under a presser foot! Also available in blunt tip.

Depending on what you want to receive from scissors and for what purposes to use them, you need to pay attention to certain features of the tool.

Wow! I am so impressed. I have always thought that there are just nail scissors and classical ones. Especially, I liked those crooked scissors.

This is so cute, can't wait to make it!
