Post by Ashjoy » Tue Feb 25, 2020 2:17 pm

I am going to need new fussy cutting scissors.  Any recommendations? They no longer make my favorite ones.

I have these, as well as the "honey bee" ones that are coated so that sticky stuff doesn't stick.  I would recommend them for fussy cutting....

The small TIm Holtz are my go to for cutting things out. They are about 5” long by 2 1/2” at widest part of handle. And VERY sharp!

I have the original Cutter Bee (pink handle), the non-stick Cutter Bee (yellow handle) and the Tim Holtz Micro serrated scissors (super sharp).  My "go to" for fussy cutting are the Cutter Bee.  The Tim Holtz work, but with the serrated edge you don't always get a smooth cut.

I love my little Fiskars micro point scissors, especially the non stick one. I have the Honey Bee one too but I always reach for the Fiskars they seem sharper to me.

DITTO, I have the cutter bees and I prefer the Tim Holtz ones.  I have 3 pair, I always misplace mine.  I like the shorter blades for getting into nooks and crannies.

I love my cutter bee's... I like my Tim Holtz but not the look of the edge with the serrated scissors.

Do you know if they still make that Honeybee ones?  I looked a few places and did not see them. i just both the cutterbee ones a few weeks ago to replace my 14 year old or so ones.

You said exactly what I was going to say. I love fussy cutting and so far I haven't found better scissors for it than the Cutter Bee ones. They make one with white handles that's nice, too. I'm always trying out different kinds but I haven't found any better. Fiskars of a similar size come in second, but they are harder to hold for some reason.

I love the cutter bees, too. Especially the non-stick ones - they are awesome!
