CURVED SCISSORS SHOOT OUT: WHICH ONE FOR YOUR BODY?

Everybody always ask which scissors are the best?

We decided to do a little bit of comparing. Most scissors are similar in price and size. But the biggest difference is the blade.

We’ve been using Yokomo and Associated scissors as long as we’ve been using Kyosho scissors but theres one that has more of an edge than the others.

Here’s some comparison photos:

So there you have it. The KYOSHO ones have the most angle. So in those really tight places, they outshine the others. BUT, we’ve never used a pair of Associated or Yokomo and thought they were inadequate. The Associated is the cheapest of the bunch, but still is great. The Yokomo ones feel pretty good quality but yields the highest price. The Kyosho is really affordable and cuts great!
