Karen Kay Buckley is renowned for her award winning applique work and has created a great line of tools for quilters. These scissors have comfortable soft handles and a micro serrated blade which grabs threads rather than pushing them away like traditional scissors. Things you will like about these scissors…cushioned handle, easy for right or left hander to use, blades sharp to the very tip, serrated blade keeps fabric from fraying, light weight and comfortable. The 7 1/2″ size are great for cutting single or multiple layers of fabric. If your quilt has a lot of one shape, layer cutting saves a tremendous amount of time. One blade is micro serrated, the other is plain and can be sharpened.
