The only regret I have is that I did not buy them sooner. It is a delight to use these scissors. They are very sharp, well built and perform the way one would wish and expect of a good tool. Three perfect sizes. The pivot is excellent (slotted flat head stainless screw in a recessed guard with a guarded cap nut on the back) and does not allow any "play" between the blades, insuring a true cut from the pivot to the very tips. The handles are comfortable. There is no indication that these are going to fail in any way any time soon. For the price these cannot be beat. I use them every day several times a day and cannot find fault and I am a good fault finder.
