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 and they restocked some returns.
I will be getting the Anvils for sure.

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.
PS: I do not work for Fiskars

|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.|
