Kai's great all around small scissors for trimming and clipping. This is the same little 5" scissors as our best selling curved version - but without the curve because sometimes I want a straight clip. I write the date on the handle with a sharpie, and have them scattered around the studio, keep one pair on a ribbon around my neck, one at the serger and another at the ironing board. Perfect for nipping threads, ideal for close trimming an enclosed seam, accurate for clipping into a corner. Super sharp---I just can't say enough good things about such a simple little too. The Kai people took their basic little 5 inch scissor and put a slight curve into it, and, voila, a brilliant improvement. 5 stars!!!
