A modern classic! These spring-loaded dressmaking shears are just wonderful as any devoted user will tell you. Their spring loaded action helps relieve any ligament or muscle strain caused by the opening action when using scissors. These are ideal for people with hand problems such as arthritis, RSI, tendonitis or carpel tunnel. They are also popular with people who simply want to reduce wrist and hand fatigue when undertaking repetitive cutting for any work from sewing to quilting. They are also great for slashing when making chenille projects.
