Kat, please excuse the bad photo, I had difficulty getting an image that didn't reflect. That "fuzzy edge" is from the cloth that I desperately used to wipe and re-wipe the scissor's blade for the shot.

I assembled the scissors and did a few tests cuts. Take my word for it, these babies will easily slice through any stack of newspapers, multi-layers of fabric and even 16 ounce denim with little to no pressure.

You do not have an old fashioned hobby or passion. If it's any consolation, it's me who might be out of step! You should see the looks from knitting and macramé set the first time they meet their sharpener!
