I purchased these scissors because the ones I had for a long time broke. These are just as great as the ones I had (they were a different brand), these are a lot sharper than the ones I had. The only thing I do not like about these scissors is that I can only use them with my right hand, my other scissors I could use them with my left hand too. I like to use them to cut my finger nails, so I will be using a different pair of scissors to cut my finger nails with. They will still be good for trimming my toe nails and cuticles. I am still happy with my purchase.
