It’s not every day that you can believe what you see or hear 👂 right?
  That said I,m going out on a limb and making the above claim.   So.
      Small but not tiny,   Large finger and thumb holes,   Stainless,  affordable,  w. Seriated blade.
These scissors will cut braid without pulling tension on it.  And cut  cordura and Kevlar like butter.
   Clouse is the brand .   All comments are welcome.   Just put these on your thanks giving shopping list 🤦‍♀️🎣🤷‍♂️

Check out the Pitbull spectra scissors… they’re great!

Hey, those look like the ones I buy on Amazon, except they have red handles. I got them for doing composite work but now use them for everything.  I've never worn out a pair, but have to keep replacing them because they tend to walk away.

Thanks, Gary!

I just ordered a pair from Zoro.

$21 something including $1.25 tax and $5 shipping.

Red handles — same specs and model number.

Sorry Ron,  me bad.🤢.    I got these at a commercial fishing supply store for under 15$
  I’ve got lots of knives, pliers, and scissors and these are very good little scissors ✂️.
Next I’m looking for some  readers! 👿

Lots of folks are hesitant or complain about companies like Zoro —

After Gary’s post — I looked online for the best deal.  

Amazon was $24.  Wal-Mart was $32. One place was (6) pair for $32 — but with zero ratings and a company name I did not recognize — and figured was in China — I did not want to put my card out there.

Found on Zoro this pair for $15 + $5 shipping.  Ordered them since they already had my card and account on file.

Within 2 minutes an order number was provided to my email,  within 8 minutes a shipping tracking number was also provided, early this morning it was shipped and is now in the system to arrive tomorrow.  This was ordered late last night.

Last week I needed a couple of pressure washer 5 piece soap inlet connectors for my Honda pressure washer — and also for a friend’s across the road.  

Checked with Honda — $11+ each, plus shipping.

Amazon was $8.84 + free shipping.

Ereplacement parts was $9 + shipping.

Zoro was $1.44 each + $5 shipping.  1 day delivery.  Ordered (4) at that price since the shipping was the same — and both me and our neighbor across the road would have a spare each on hand.  These are OEM Honda parts with the correct part number, new, and each in sealed plastic containers.

Very happy with Zoro for tools and such items.

Best, Fred

I'm looking at the Clauss site. There are a bunch of options. Do we like the Ti coated ones? Gary's look to be the 6 1/2 partially serrated pointed. I think I'll go with the blunt tip, otherwise I'll stab myself while underway!
