Scissors measure a length of 7 1/2 Inch, and have a 2 7/8 Inch long blade. One blade is micro serrated, the other is a regular blade which can be sharpened. The serrated blade keeps fabric from slipping, instead of pushing it away as a regular blade does. This allows for more accurate cutting. The serration also helps to keep fabric from fraying. This size is great for cutting single or multiple layers of fabric. Karen comfortably cuts up to 4 layers at a time, which considerably reduces the time spent cutting. Comfortable soft grip handles are spacious, giving plenty of room for fingers to fit. They work for either left-or right-handed users. Comes with a protective plastic cover. From Karen K. Buckley.
