The Fiskars Cuts and More Scissors are a more industrial scissor. I find that I use them when I need to cut odd items--metal of all sorts including different wires, keys, and tags; rope/string/twine; wood; a 75 page book that was carved into a pumpkin; etc--The Fiskars scissors come to the rescue when normal scissors will not cut it. (ha, pun intended!) I have used them on the oddest of items, and perfectly normal items as well. However, I would not say these are the best "every day" scissors. Of course they cut paper, and even leave a smooth edge (these scissors are VERY, VERY sharp! Accident prone scrapper here and I have cut myself with them a few times.) but they are bulky, not easy to cut out something as simple as a square or circle & almost impossible to use for detail work. With that being said, I still think EVERYONE'S life would be easier with a pair of these in the house. There are many special features to these scissors, and they can be used in ways you would never have thought scissors could be used. If you do not want to ruin a great pair of paper or fabric scissors cutting odd items, then invest in the Fiskars Cuts and More Scissors--they are capable of handling most any material you throw their way and are not easily destroyed like a pair of fabric or paper scissors would be.
I won these through the NSD and am so impressed with them! They have so many different functions and are really strong and handy. They're heavy, but not annoyingly so. Love that they come with a sheath and sharpener and that you can take them apart and use as a blade. (Also the bottle opener is rather convenient...) :)
This is amazing! There are so many ways to use these scissors - I love the way they cut through grunge board and the thin metal sheets. (Even cuts the tops off of charms when glued on cards). Definitely a 'must have' for your tools!
