I usually purchase unmounted stamps, for the lower price. I then have to mount them on an adhesice mounting paper. The adhesive sticks to the scissors and is just a pain to work with. You have to stop and use baby oil to clean them so they will continue to cut properly. NOT with these sicissors. These are just wonderful. I just received them and have been cutting and mounting for about an hour and with the soft grip my hand does not hurt and there won't be any blisters tomorrow. I would recommend these to anyone who must cut through any type of material that is thick or heavy or sticky. These are the best I have ever had. Thank you Tonic Studios.
