I bought a set of these from HSN. I am always looking for scissors, especially since I am left handed and I have to turn scissors upside down in the first place for them to cut. They came and I used them. Then I bought another set and then another set. They are the best scissors on the market, bar none. They are comfortable to hold, sharper than any scissors I have ever used, and I love them. I have a set downstairs, I have a set upstairs, and I have a set in my travel tote. I would recommend these scissors without hesitation.
This lead holder is visually very similar to the MUCH more expensive Rotring 600 2mm lead holder. It is all- metal, and is very nice to work with. The internal lead tube appears to be brass. The finish, however, is delicate. Very easy to scratch. But since this is a professional tool and not jewelry, that doesn't really matter. Especially at this price. I bought a bunch!
