I'm left-handed. (I always had a hard time with scissors hurting my hand or making cutting hard.) These multi-purpose scissors are great!!!! They are so comfortable to use! They have sharp stainless steel blades which makes cutting paper, tape, ribbon, fabric, felt and cardstock so easy! Even after 7 (nonstop) days of cutting and taping for my Most Gifted Wrapper contest submission my hand didn't hurt at all! (Yay! No blisters!!!) I loved these scissors so much - that I bought an extra pair to give to my crafty (left-handed) friend for Christmas!!! So that, we can craft together comfortably without sore hands!
