Kai 5100 Scissor


Kai 5100: 4" Needle Craft Scissor

These little guys are so handy! I have pairs of these and Kai-5100-SER (serrated) all over my studio, home and project totes. While small and lightweight, they are super sharp and perfect for not only thread snipping, but fabric clipping as well. Before discovering Kai, I found it tricky to find a small but sharp scissor capable of clean and precise fabric snipping--a need when appliquéing!

From Kai

The Kai 5100: 4" needlecraft scissor's sharp, pointed tips allow for detailed cutting and trimming. Very popular for trimming threads, Hardanger embroidery, beadwork, rug hooking, and fly tying for fishermen.

As with all of Kai 5000 series scissors, the blades are made of a hardened stainless steel. This allows for an unmatched smoothness in both cut and feel, well beyond the longevity of other brands.
