This is Karen Kay Buckley's first pair of straight blade scissors. This 5 in. Multipurpose (orange handles) pair is great for cutting templates (freezer paper, Templar), fabric and fabric with fusible stabilizers. The blades are stainless steel. The handles have the same soft, ergonomic grip as our other Perfect Scissors™. They cut sharp to the point and come with a plastic protective cover. Great for both right and left hand cutting.
