I purchased these thinning scissors on the advice of a friend and I am delighted with them, they are very light and nice and sharp. Was not expecting to get good thinning scissors for this price but they are great and the lightness of them makes them very easy for me to use longer as I have arthritis in the hands and cannot trim for as long with the heavier scissors. I am well impressed with the scissors and the price and will be shopping here again in the future. A very happy customer and the delivery service is GREAT!!!!
