    ^ NiCE :thumbsup: My shop scissors are ALL pitiful. I will surely sign up for a pair of these (and I guess a scythe stone). :thumbsup:

    Boy those look like a must have! The credit card cut did it for me. When yopu cut the aluminum wire, did it leave a burr in the scissors?

    Nope--no burr! And they go through credit card plastic like it's paper. It was actually the easiest of the various things I cut for the video, but I figure it's something plenty of folks have probably struggled through using stamped office scissors, so they'd know what an easy time the Humboldt shears had of it. :D :D :D

    I sure could have used these this weekend to remove summer growth in the garden beds. Hostas had some tough stocks. May have to get two, one for the house and one for outside, just have to remember not to let my wife use them, they might end up in her sewing basket.

    Very much looking forward to these! I don't believe I can stop at one pair if they live up to the proto type.

    @FortyTwoBlades hope these are all you say they are because just ordered another pair. Any chance of getting some help on shipping, or maybe a stone to keep them sharp?
