I love applique scissors! My favorite is by Gingher. I lost them and bought another pair of Applique scissors by Gingher. The new pair is larger. I fould the old pair and like it much, much better. I also like my applique scissors by Dovo and KAI. The other applique sicissors I have are just so so. I do not have Karen Kay Buckley scissors; but comments make me want a pair.

I had to laugh at you having mild fits if someone touches your scissors because my son just can't understand why I won't let him use my scissors to cut paper.

Hummm, I had never thought to buy the applique scissors for applique because my small ones worked so well. I might have to look into them. And yes, my family is so aware that if my scissors are ruined by paper, then I have no reason why not to cut up fishing lines, xBox games, etc. with them anymore.--LOL

Ohhhhhhhhhhh that's a great idea! I'll remember that one if my son sneaks my scissors out of the room. LOL!!

I love Karen Kay Buckley's scissors also. I have Ginghers and Fiskar, which are ok but these are outstanding since they don't push the fabric away as you cut, it grabs the fabric. Get the small pair for trimming and the large pair for cutting out larger pieces. You can buy them in quilt stores but I ordered mine directly from her.

as long as they are small- pointy-with sharp to the point blades they will work- whether or not they say (for applique) is really not an issue-
for a long time i used a wonderful pair of manicure scissors- now i have a pair of duck-bills that i love- i have also used itty-bitty- 2 1/2" pointy scissors (bought for $2 at Michaels) that worked well for me for a long time- i still keep them on the end of my ironing board to clip threads...
find sharp- pointy scissors-with the thinnest (narrowest) blades you can find- you do not have to pay extra to have something that says (applique)
