When I bought these, I was a bit nervous that they would be sub par due to the price... With extended use I found them to be of good quality, very sturdy and useful!

Cuts Nicely

Nice tool to have around just in case you need to make a cut. Very well made and a great price as well.

I was surprised by how much I ended up using this. It makes cleaning up edges so easy. And clean... This should have been one of the first tools I got, but better late than never. And these are good quality for the price. The handles aren’t great but I never really use them for a long time- so I don’t see needing to replace unless something terrible happens.

Good shears for the price.


I frequently use my shears but I've run into some problems cutting thin layers of glass with these, Theres a good reason why a good quality shares cost a little bit of money.

$20 is a deal but you get what you pay for.

I am a bit surprised to see so many 5 star reviews. These shears do work but if you squeeze to hard the handles bend, they are easy to bend back. The cutting surface is rough so the leave a thin layer of glass that needs to be swiped. If you have $200 to get better shears I would suggest doing so but for $20 they so work.
