Let’s face it, all crafters want when we go to cut is a good pair of scissors that work. That’s what I get when I use my Titanium-bonded non-stick scissors by Westcott.
I’ve had a chance to use these petite scissors recently and am pleased with their cutting ability. I’ve laid them out in classes as well so students could give them a try and the feedback I’ve heard from the students has been favorable too.
I’m the type of crafter who really appreciates when one tool can be used for multiple uses. I really don’t need to own lots of individual scissors that perform only one particular type of cutting (unitaskers, if you are an Alton Brown fan). I prefer to have just one pair of scissors that I can use across the board. I can honestly say that these great little scissors do that for me.
This particular pair are Westcott’s Titanium Non-Stick 5″ Scissors with Microtip, and the blades are super sharp. What the microtip means is that when I’m cutting paper, clear to the tip of the scissor blade, I get a nice clean-cut line – no little nick on the end. That’s great for those of us who hand cut letters, flowers or other tiny intricate pieces – all that fussy-cutting or detail work.
And these scissors easily go from paper-crafting to needle work. Their small size isn’t meant to cut through heavy corrugated cardboard, metal and such, but they quickly and easily cut through paper, cardstock and light-weight chipboard, and they’ll snip embroidery thread, as well as cut through felt and burlap cleanly.
- Very Sharp, Microtip
- Easily go from paper to fiber
- Too small for cutting heavy materials like corrugated cardboard and metal
Westcott Titanium Non-Stick 5″ Scissors with Microtip are currently available on Amazon.com for $11.40.
