As a professional home economist, I have enjoyed Gingher scissors for many years. I ordered these scissors expecting the same high quality I am accustomed to. I was very disappointed when I discovered that they were manufactured in Mexico, felt awkward and heavy in my hand. These are not the precision, quality scissors I was expecting. Quality Gingher manufactured in Brazil and Italy. I immediately returned the scissors for a credit. Unfortunately, Overstock charged return postage. I was hopeful that since the product was inferior, that I would not be charged for return postage!
The sewpro scissors have a comfortable grip, so necessary when cutting large pieces if fabric. This product reduces the labor intensity of beginning a sewing project, and the cut angle allows viewing of the fabric as it is cut. Highly recommend this scissor.
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.
