    Scissors make the cut
    WalWorks, a division of Zinsser Co., has introduced ComfortGrip Scissors, a new line developed specifically for use on wallcovering, window treatments, upholstery, fabric and craft products. The scissors, crafted from the finest precision steel, are keenly honed to handle the most delicate wallpaper. The substantial blades and adjustable tension also make them ideal for use on thick commercial vinyl and textile wallcoverings, string and grass cloth wallcoverings, heavy-weight upholstery materials including leather, canvas and burlap, and all decorator fabrics. ComfortGrip Scissors are uniquely crafted with slip-resistant cushioned grips and ambidextrous handles with extra-large finger loops. They are available in two blade sizes — 9.5" and 11" — with design features specifically styled for wallpaper and fabric projects.

    Wallpaper scissors, they cut fabric and paper. You get them at the paint supply stores for around $8.00 to $10.00.

    These same scissors have served me well for 7 years! Never needs sharpening!!!

    Don't even try to sharpen, the scissors marked for paper only is my attempt to sharpen a dent out of the cutting blade WHERE SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME...tried to cut wire, I'm guessing. They won't cut fabric now, but will cut paper perfectly.

    I am lft-handed too. I bought a beautiful pair of the larger size Gingher's. The second time I used them I was making a dress for my granddaughter and cut through a pin!!!!!!!!!!!! I took them to a man that sharpens scissors but there is still a place on the blade that doesn't cut right. I am so mad at my stupid self!!!

    Can't wait to try the wallpaper scissors. Thanks.

    I was intrigued by this information and immediately called ever paint and wallpaper store in my area only to discover that the owner of the largest store had not seen wallpaper shears for more than 20 years and the other store has not carried for them for several years. These scissors would be great for scrapbooking and I really would like to try a pair. I found some online (local merchants complain because we buy online, which we wouldn't so much if they carried what we want to buy), but need to know if there is a brand name so I'll know more what I'm buying. If anyone has a brand s/he is satisfied with, please p.m. me. froggyintexas
