These are decent,

"If you're new to fly tying, these would be great. They are slightly better than the economical scissors. If you want a great pair, buy Orvis Premium Scissors.
The edges have a fine serrations (which I like). They just don't open an close very smoothly. That said, I do like them and I do use them."

"Comfortable to use and very sharp; theses scissors handle all materiel and cut clean and accurate. I carry a second pair in my vest for various on-water tasks. These are excellent scissors for a reasonable price."

Nice scissors, but,

"While the cutting edges are not in question, the finish on the non-cutting edges left a lot to be desired. There were several burrs along the entire length of these edges that would actually cut me if I rubbed against them too fast. I had to get out a dremel and my polishing wheels and do some work there so they wouldn't snare and cut hackles or tying materials."

"These scissors are wonderful. They are really sharp and tight. They cut thread and feathers perfectly. Will retire my old scissors to wire and tinsel."

"After my favorite pair of scissors was finally retired, I searched around a lot before buying a pair of scissors. I finally decided on the Orvis All-Purpose Scissors. I have to say, they replaced my old set very well and they were cheaper as well. They aren't the sharpest or the finest scissors, but they're not supposed to be. I bought two pairs: 1) I use for my materials and 2) I use the other for my fine metals and copper wire cutting when the fingers don't do the trick. But since they're only $10, I don't feel bad about putting some mileage on them. If you need some general purpose scissors, these are the way to go. With their gold plated handles, they look great in my collection too. If you're looking for something super sharp, or super fine, check out Orvis' other scissors though."
