Far & away the best scissors for limp braid I have used.

Boris put me on to them in the 'old days'
Might have to restart my nad toughening training before slipping those bad boys into my pocket

They do look like they would slay braid though

Looking good Blood Worm - how long have you had them?

I have both and found the owner to cut limp braid better than the snowpeaks. for cheap scissors you cant go past the surecatch ones

Geez they used to be 5 bucks.

It sounds like I should have included more than 3 people in my survey

Thanks for all the suggestion fellas - might have to do an official breammaster poll once all of the brands get mentioned.

If anyone else has some contenders - give them a mention

After seeing your vid I ordered the Berkleys as they are now cheaper than the Surecatch version and look to be just as effective. Also ordered the following for comparison.

I also placed an order fro the Abel and then realised I am but a mere mortal without a super human salary and quickly rescinded.

Great information here
My recommendation on braid scissors would be Dr Slick brad scissors. We have been using them for years and have not had to purchase a new set in over 5 years. Forget how much they cost but not much more than the cheapies but value in the long run

Ceramic

Worst decision I ever made was to spend $30 on ceramic braid scissors, what a crock

In fact, BFL if I can find them I will post to you for your in-depth comparison.

The only redeeming feature is the kindy-kids rounded nose to save save your pockets...
