I bought these and found the handle too tight and the tension so strong I couldn't open and close to cut fabric. I do have arthitis in my hands, but have other Fiskars shears I can use with no problem. There is no adjustment screw for tension. I had to retun them for an exchange.
This scissors are really sharp, but handles are terrible - they are made for real small hand( glove size 5). After cutting for few minutes they cause blisters on thumb and fingers. Design is very poor.
These are super sharp. The scissors have a good weight to them - not flimsy or light. These Fiskars are comparable to Ginghar scissors. I highly recommend these if you are looking for a good pair of scisors at a reasonable price especially if you use 40% off coupon!
