These are first rate scissors. I already owned the 8 inch version and use it constantly for quilting. Wanted smaller,more nimble size of same brand. Overstock offered the best price. Scissors were new and were delivered quickly.

I'm used to using 8" sewing scissors so initially it took a little practice getting used to the smaller size. However I placed my 5" gingher scissors on my sewing machine table and removed my 8" scissors so that I automatically pick them up. They easily cut and clip fabric, are lightweight in the hand, and comfortable to hold. The only drawback I've experienced is getting my thumb out of the thumb loop when I've finished using them. I highly recommend this product for sewers/quilters who are frequently clipping and cutting small pieces of fabric. They are easy to manipulate and place in the right position for cutting small pieces. The cut cleanly down to the scissor tip. Very nice tool.
The delivery was prompt and troublefree. Thank you.

These are wonderful scissors as indicated. They are razor sharp - please be careful. The length in total is 5" - the blade itself is ~ 3 inches. I was originally misled by the description - hopefully the helpful customer service folks have had the description changed since my email.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? I take issue with the part of the description that said 5" blade - these scisors do NOT have a 5 " blade - more like 3". I consider the name misleading and even the person writing the description was confused. Hopefully they have made a correction by now - I let them know of my confusion.
