I’ve been coveting these for a long, long time and so was delighted to discover them here. They are great. So far used for trimming bezel wire down to height and for cutting keum boo gold foil

"I had heard from other metal smiths that these were great scissors for cutting metals. They are! Able to do cuts without serration marring like you get using Tin snips which saves me buffing time as well as giving me better precision. I'm spending much less time grinding and filing edges as well."
"Joyce Chen makes a wonderful utility scissor. I've had several pairs through the years and I got these to have as a spare pair. I am hard on them as I use them to cut thin metal sheet (silver, copper, brass) in my jewelry work. They always work like champs and seem to stay sharp much longer than others I've tried. They are light, easy to handle, and fit my hand well (unlike aviation-type shears that are heavy and cumbersome to use). They really do the job."
I adore these scissors, so far they have cut bezel wire cleanly and smoothly, they have also cut piped metal clay with no trouble at all. My partner is green with envy so I am going to have to buy him a pair as well as a pair for the kitchen.
