While I will use these for lots of other things, including electrical work, I primarily bought these hoping that they would be just the job for cutting paracord and I am not disappointed.
Previously I have used other knives and scissors, but sadly most have tended to fray the ends of the paracord, not making for a very tidy end, ready for sealing. These are not doing that, so I am very pleased. The ordinary blades do a good job, but the cutting notch really comes into its own for this, holding the cord still whilst cutting. Using the ordinary blades also gives me good results, largely because of the micro serrations, which hold the cord in place.
I am pleased that these come with the holder, as it protects the scissor ends from doing any damage to anything. It was fairly stiff, as I think someone else has commented, but on manipulating the scissors in it, I am happy that they now slide into it quite well. Any looser and they would fall out, I think. The holder has a useful flap for putting over a belt and with a press stud for closing, which would be handy for many people.
I cannot say that I particularly like the colours, but otherwise, all in all, this is a good purchase.
