I have 4 Dr.Slick scissors and think all but 1 of them suck.The SA35G that is a 3 1/2" straight blade by far is the best out of the other ones i own.

If you have the cash and want the best get some Anvils.

My other ones don't cut good.The tips touch eachother so their not flush down the whole cutting edge.I've bent the tips out on one set to try and fix em and they still dont cut.So i did not mess with the other ones(All gold scissors).

I guess for what they cost their not that bad if they cut.But i find it hard to believe i bought 3 bad pair out of 4.

Could be that i bought them at Cabelas dunno.gif and they restocked some returns.

I will be getting the Anvils for sure.

I've not used the Dr. Slicks although I am interested in any feedback anyone may have in the ones with the serated blades. I pretty much live by my Anvils.

During the past 30 years I have used all types of scissors.

 

Big snips, small snips expensive snips, economy snips, Fly snips, sewing snips, normal snips and odd looking snips.

 

Two years ago while visiting the local flea market; I picked up a pair of Scissors (brand new still in the sealed package) for $1.00. I brought them home and tied a few flies. I died and went to tiers Heaven. St Peter told me I have received the golden Snips created by God just for fly-tying.

I went back to the market the following week and bought all 6 pair. I have given 3 pair away, Have one hidden in a secret spot (mentioned in my will).and keep two on my bench.

 

These are the best I ever found and only paid $1.00. The fit in your palm while tying and are small enough they do not interfere with finger dexterity. The guys I gave them to love them and are indebted to me for life

 

They are made by Fiskars and are called "ShortCut Snip #94957097"

You can go to the fiskars web site, enter your zip code and find your local distributor.

I have 7 pairs of scissors, use them all, 4 Dr. Slicks, and 2 Tiemco's. Once I paid about $50 for a pair, I cant remember which one but I would hope it's the fine tipped Tiemcos', they rock for close work. The Dr. Slicks are good and one of these I use more than the others combined.

I'd recommend a quality suturing scissors- the one's made in Germany. These scissors are made with quality stainless steel that stays sharp and have very fine tips. To me, these are perfect for fly tying.
