    The Fiskars 9911 model pictured with this listing is the older version of these same scissors — which is the reason I chose to purchase them here. However, it appears that Fiskars no longer produces the version pictured. They new model has been redesigned to be more “ergonomic” I suppose… but the slide lock mechanism on the new models isn’t located in the same spot which makes it slightly less convenient for me large hands. Also, the lock on the new model tends to slip forward when cutting and hinders the range of the scissors and will occasionally slip back and let the scissors open when they are in my holster.

    All in all I have always been happy with the Fiskars scissors — the blades stay sharp and the cutting action is smooth — but as with some other products in the past (think “New Coke”) the older model is superior to the newer.

    Great scissors with one annoying disappointment, January 31, 2011

    I use these scissors a lot, as they’re in general great scissors. They’ll easily cut through several layers, including a combination I often use of felted wool, woven interfacing, and fusible fleece. The only problem is the little orange catch — it often slides forward during a cut so that I can’t complete the cut until I push the catch back again. This has turned what would have been a five-star review into a three-star, as it happens a lot and is very annoying. From the rest of the reviews, I see this isn’t a common problem but does happen occasionally. If they’d fix this, these would be hands-down my favorite scissors.

    The spring action is a real hand-saver. I occasionally have carpel tunnel syndrome and joint pain. These scissors are the easiest cutting tool I have ever used. They make regular scissors seem old fashioned.
