I've been interested trying these as so many members seem to love them. So, what are peoples' favorites: Standard, Professional, Serrated? What sizes do you like? Thanks for the heads up on the sale.

I have very small hands and would be wasting money on blades longer than 9" because I just can't open anything larger.

My last purchase was for a pair of the Professional 9" shears. I love them. I don't know how much of a difference there is between the Professional and Serrated ones. I have a pair of regular and serrated Gingher shears and even if I look closely at the blades, I still have a hard time telling which is which. You can email or call Kai, they are very responsive and friendly.

I bought a pair of Kai pinking shears from Wawak (they seem to have the best price) and they are far more comfortable than my Ginghers.

A serrated blade is supposed to be more accurate as it will grab the fabric and hold it while cutting so there should be less shifting when the fabric gets 'lifted'. I have a pair of serrated Gingher that do seem to cut very nicely.

What luck finding this thread! Or I guess not so lucky as I'm now $100 poorer... I Heart my Kai scissors. I have the one with the serrated edge and I've been wanting one without. The serrated edge does grip the fabric well - but you can never have too many scissors in my book.

You'll have to report back about how much of a difference the non-serrated one is! I ended up picking up some nail clippers, airplane safe scissors and kitchen shears today. Nothing for the sewing room, maybe next year!

If you have them, you already know how awesome they are.

If you don't have them yet, you should. And I'm sure you've heard about them.

They have a 20% off sale right now with free shipping in the USA. BUY THEM NOW!!

And no, I'm not affiliated

Double post - I just posted about this sale, but someone beat me to it! :-)

For those who want to purchase, I recommend the gift set which has 3 pairs, an 8", a 4" and a 5 or 6" pair. I also bought the 28mm rotary cutter & blades.

Since I've had those, I LOVE LOVE LOVE them and now just purchased the 45mm rotary cutter & blades and a pair of embroidery snippers, plus replacement blades.

Grab this deal while you can!

I have the Professional Kai in the 8", 9", and 10". My favorite is probably the 9". Someone mentioned WAWAK as a good place to get them. Their prices are the best and even better if you use the Threads coupon code THREADS1113.

I have a couple pairs of Ginghers too, but I haven't used them since getting my first pair of Kai 6 or 7 years ago. They haven't even needed to be sharpened.
