Extremely portable - The cap protects the tips, prevents the scissors from opening in transit, and allows it to be tucked into the spine of your "SMASH" book, or into an art case. It is about the size and shape of a square-ish Art Marker.
Don't worry if you think they'll be awkward! They have a spring that opens them and it takes a very light pressure to operate. They corner very well, and are very easy to control.
The price is WORTH IT.
