These BPA- and lead-free scissors feature comfortable finger grips, an ambidextrous design, and easy-to-use handles for large and small hands alike. The blades’ pointed tips are designed to puncture material. This makes it easy to initiate a cut in the middle, rather than at the edge, of the material. Equipped with Slice®’s patent-pending finger-friendly® blade edge, these blades are safe to the touch. The 35-millimeter blades effectively cut through a wide variety of materials and last up to 11 times longer than metal blades. These scissors are suitable for craft and home materials, as well as industrial materials like flexible plastics, copper wiring, and Kevlar-reinforced fabric. Blades are oil-free, chemically inert, non-magnetic, maintenance-free, and never rust.
