they are great - I used to have the same pair a few years ago but lost them and was more than happy to find them at such a great price.

I love these scissors. I have another pair that I have had for 15 years (give or take) that I use to trim hair. They are the perfect size and cost a lot less than professional stylist scissors. I have only had to sharpen the old ones once during that time. I am sure these will be as reliable. Thank you Overstock.

I bought the 5 inch Gingher scissors to use next to my sewing machine & serger to snip the threads. The scissors are light weight, and are very sharp. I have had the Gingher Fabric Scissors for 22 years and they are still as sharp as the day I got them- ie. they are a great brand to invest in!

These scissors are a "must" for the sewer, quilter or dressmaker. It's spring action makes cutting fabric a breeze. I immediately used it to finish a quilt I had been working on. The scissors are heavy stainless steel and the blades are extremely sharp The quality is unsurpassed. The price was the lowest I have seen when shopping for these scissors! Even with the shipping costs (very reasonable), the total was far less than I could find at my local quilt shops. Thanks for providing such a quality product at a reasonable price!!

These craft scissors are exceptional. I love the width of the handle; it makes it very comfortable for cutting. I will be buying these scissors as gifts for my crafting friends.

Scissors were ok, but since I bought 5 for a group of ladies at my retirement home, it was difficult to explain to them why some got a case for their scissors and some did not and why some actually looked like the piclture and some did not. Only 3 actually looked like the picture.

As a quilter, scissors are a very important part of the "equipment" needed and it is necessaray to have top quality. I have always found thet Gingher scissors are the best for cutting fabric and I am very partiicular that my Gingher's are used for fabric only!! I have used Gingher scissors for years and will continue to do so.

Bought the scissors to replace a broken one. My wife loves them and highly recommends them.

I've had a pair of these for 10 years. I needed a replacement after I dropped them and searched everywhere. I had also looked over the past 5-f years for a pair for my mother and never found them. What a great surprise when I found them here and for more than 50% off the store price! These are the best scissors I own for snipping threads, trimming applique, and carry them with me when I take small projects.

I have been searching for this item as a replacement to my Gingher scissor sharpening stone that "disappeared". about 6 months ago. One week before I ordered it from Overstock.com I had ordered it from another online company and was told it was no longer available. I am happy with the sharpening stone that I received however it wasn't the same stone inside as the my original one (which is the one pictured). With that being said, I also own an internet business so I understand it is very difficult to keep track of all necessary updates with pictures, etc.. All things considered I am very please with the great contact from this company and their speedy shipping. This was my first experience with Overstock and would order from them again. I am also thrilled that my Gingher scissors are as sharp as could be again. OH! I almost forgot to mention that the sharpening details changed with this stone and I was glad I read the enclosed instructions.

I'm a weaver, and needed a smaller pair of scissors near my loom. These are wonderful-no gnawing through a big chunk of yarn, and they fit in the holder on my loom. I've used Gingher scissors for years-they are the best.

Very good product for the price; however, the "free" shipping did take 12 days from the time the order shipped until I received it.

These scissors are probably the best crafting scissors I have owned. the micro serrated blades are great for cutting through rubber stamps, and thick materials, as well as doing detail cutting, and general paper crafting. They come with a cover as well which is good if you have little ones or to protect the blades when you leave them on your desk. Would definitely reccomend these scissors to any crafty person.

Very bulky and obviously made for someone with HUGE hands! I've used Fiskar scissors for years but some idiot designed these...

I have about 20 pairs of craft scissors. All different brands. These are by far my favorite. The larger handle holes are wonderful! I don't get tired using these.
Thu Dec 02 00:00:00 MST 2010azquilter Rating:5.0
Only had them to use for about ten days , so far excellent. I use them for thread and fabric mostly. Replaced a worn out pair of Fiskars craft scissors. These are easy to pick up and put down with large finger holes. Hopefully they stay sharp and last a couple of years...
