Bought these five years ago, they are as sharp now as the day I bought them.
Fine points, I got mine for 8, search around, you won't get better.

I agree with Steven. You just might find other scissors as good, if you are very lucky, but I doubt you will find better. I've had mine for five or six years, and they are still as good as the day I bought them. Mind you, they seem to have gone up a bit in that time! I seem to remember that mine were around 8.

get some fine Wet and Dry and cut a circle with your scissors, 800 grit should be fine but try some thing finer if you fancy, it works for me and it was a barber that told me, easker1
