Review | Westcott Titanium Non-Stick 5″ Microtip Scissors

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.

Review | Westcott Extreme Edge Titanium Scissors

I thought I owned all the scissors I needed for my crafting projects but then I received a pair of Westcott Extreme Edge Titanium Scissorsto try.  I had lots of projects going on using a variety of products so I put these to the test.

I needed to cut some burlap strips and muslin pieces and was delighted at just how easily these scissors glided through both types of fabrics. They really did cut “like butter” – I felt no pressure at all and both fabrics were cut with nice clean edges.

CHA Winter 2012: Westcott Scissor Mouse

I must admit, I was concerned when I saw this new product from Westcott.  I love their trimmers and scissors, but I have used “quick cut” tools like this before with great disappointment.  Usually they catch on the paper, don’t cut straight, or only work with a cutting mat.  This tool, on the other hand, does NOT disappoint.
The Scissor Mouse is the size of a computer mouse.  It’s easy to handle and comes in 5 colors.
Cutting paper is a breeze with the Scissor Mouse!  You do not need a cutting mat.  The paper is grabbed by a little tab under the tool that cuts the paper.
The front of the tool has a measuring guide that is very accurate.  Just line your measurement up with the edge of the paper and push straight.  You can cut narrow strips with ease!
Use the Scissor Mouse to cut any lightweight papers.  This would be a perfect tool for the Quiller who needs to cut multiple narrow strips.  Or great for making paper beads.
What do you think?  Would this be a tool you’d like to add to your craft arsenal?
