Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Curved Scissors™ in the 4 in. size feature curved tips, which allow you to clip close to your fabric without cutting into your quilt top. These scissors are fabulous for clipping threads for machine quilting, machine appliqué and machine embroidery. One blade is micro-serrated and one is a regular blade; the micro serrated blade pulls the fabric into the scissors rather than pushing it away like traditional scissors. As with all Karen Kay Buckley brand scissors, they have a soft grip handle and a plastic protective cover.
