It's the Little Things That Count

Here's another tool tip for those of you who have just about all you need (for the moment). This isn't something you HAVE to have, but, boy it sure makes things easier if you have it.

I use a lot of tape. I cut small tags. I cut even ends to match neatly when I fold over a mandrel or stone for measurement. I like to trim "flags" when they are too big and getting in my way. I had a small pair of "orange" Fiskars for that, but the tape always stuck to the blades and was in my way for the next cut. I had to stop what I was doing and take the tape off the scissors. They were annoying in lots of little ways and if you have been there, then you know what I am talking about.

One day, at the craftstore, I noticed that Fiskars had some 5" Titanium Non-Stick Straight Scissors. I'm frugal by nature and had to really think about buying these before I did. They were on sale, I had the money and I thought, "What the heck." So, I brought them home and haven't looked back since. It was a good buy and the scissors perform as advertised. Plus, they are Fiskars! Needless to say, these are "hands off" to everyone in the house but me. :)
