Scissors for Fly Tying - Dr Slick and Dr X.
For maximum performance and longer scissor life - two main rules apply when making a choice.
First - match the scissor to the types of materials you tie with most often. Most scissors can handle both natural and synthetic materials with ease but if you tie predominantly with synthetic materials consider the new generation of scissors like Tungsten Carbide or Razor that are designed to handle these materials.
Second - match the scissor to the size and type of flies you tie. If you tie small flies without much mass or material use small finer blade scissors like Arrow or MicroTip. Conversely if you tie larger flies with more mass and material consider larger scissors with heavier blades like All Purpose Hair or Razor.
All Scissors for Fly Tying are made from 410 Japanese stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 45 except the Razor scissors which are made from 440 J2 stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 55.
Tungsten edged scissors will stay sharp a very long time
Please note that Tungsten Scissors have BLACK Handles.
