They are indeed excellent but it may be worth highlighting that Rubis don't make their scissors. The manufacturer and designer of these scissors is a Polish company called Renomed. Renomed makes scissors for C&F, Rubis and Marc Petitjean.These are the scissors that are included in the C&F Marco Polo fly tying set - made by Rubis -
They are excellent.
And no danger of bleeding to death either! How durable are those scissors Paul?The Iris scissors in the first link do the same and at less than a fiver including delivery they're a snip

The best fly tying scissors I tried are Tiemco Tungsten Carbide Razor scissors. They have super fine points, are razor sharp and really sturdy. No cheap but pleasure to use. Sadly, they are no longer available anywhere.
Kopter scissors are also amazing but the points on them are not as fine. The friction disc on them is a very interesting feature. I really like the resistance it gives when closing the blades.
I have approx 9 pairs with a couple with the tungsten edge. They all have a rub with a fine grade diamond hone once every few months to keep a good edge on them. The only feature I always want is a roomy enough finger loop. The only change I make is a string wrap bulge in one handle loop so they cannot lie flat, so they are always easier to pick up. A bit nerdy, but it works.
Me too!I've tried just about every type of scissors available, but have settled with 4" adjustable razor scissors
I only use them for cotton and feather and theyre still as new, they're so good that while I was looking for the link I accidently clicked buy, oops.
I still use carbon scissors I got off Mick Bell (bloke rods) and they're just as good.
