You grimace. You sigh. You stretch out your hands, trying to get some relief. Your client frowns, worried. Is she going to end up with a hair disaster because something doesnt feel right with your current set of scissors? Your hand and elbow are fatigued. You may need offset scissors. Still constructed of high quality steel, suitable for general, slice and point cutting, the offset handle brings the thumb into a more natural position. One handle is longer than the other which allows a more open hand position and for the arm and elbow to be in a lower position when cutting which is generally more comfortable.
