Buying knives, scissors, and cutting implements generally is a thankless task: even if you hold them in your hands before you buy, how can you judge the quality of the steel?
So I bought this pair of scissors for one reason only: the Victorinox name. I've owned several Swiss Army knives - and there's no question of the quality of the steel they use for these.
The good news that, after several months of varied use, these scissors are a good as when they were new. The blades are still as sharp as you'd wish, and, incidentally, the black plastic handles seem to be exceptionally strong.
OK - so you pay about twice as much for them as you would for an ordinary pair of kitchen scissors, but, in this case, you really do get what you pay for - and more.
