How to choose a scissors of quality: Everyone knows the frustration of trying to use a pair of scissors that won’t cut crisply. First and foremost a good pair of scissors has to give excellent cutting performance for the intended use. One way of testing quality scissors is to cut a few layers of fabric with the scissors tip, which is the weakest point. When closing the scissors, a gradual increase in pressure should be felt until the blades meet, there should not be a snap at the tip. The tips of your scissors should meet at a precise point. The cut should be clean; the tips should not split apart. Try one of these Dovo scissors you’ll not be disappointed!
Helpful hint: Never set a pair of scissors down in the open position. Over a period of time this will make the scissors dull and unable to cut.
