A couple of weeks ago I was asking about duckbill scissors which I was looking to buy at the Quilt and Craft Show. Well nobody had them, but I bought a small pair of appliqué scissors instead. The duckbills would have cost me $59.95 if they had have had them, instead of the $5 these cost, and I think I will get more use from these as being smaller, they get into smaller spaces. See what you think. They are 3½" long, and the blades are only 1 long.
