Anvil® Mini Scissors
Nice scissors but I expected better
I thought the high quality/price of these scissors would have a surgical-like quality but I discovered that they are crude. However they do cut well but are still difficult to use in tying the smaller flies---18--24 because the points have such a wide width spread and using them to clip fine hackle/fibers is still not optimal. If I knew what they were like ahead of time.....I would not have paid the price for them.

Like most of us I must have at least a half dozen scissors of various manufacture's and these are my absolute favorites.
Sharp, narrow tip's and comfortable to use.
The only reason I didn't give them a 5 star is I dropped them tip first which resulted in a tiny bend at the point and no fine filing was able to restore them .

great little scissors
These are great little scissors!! they did not have a fine enought tip for me so a couple of strokes with a fine file took care of that . They are adjusable. They fit in my hand just fine the whole time I am tying. They have taken a three foot fall onto tile floor an after close examination an alot of swearing, they have no damage! Very sharp tips for doing small cuts. love the polished stainless. great scissors!
