Q & As

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed Very, Very upset and disappointed! Have always been pleased with John Lewis and their products but after buying these scissors, about a month ago along with the pinking shears and other items, I've tried using them several times but each time I found they make my thumb so sore that I have to give up after a few mins. I haven't got the packaging but do have the receipt so I intend to take them back to the shop and hope that I can replace with a better pair. 08 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not up to John Lewis' high standard I purchased these on my last trip to the store. I was most disappointed when I removed them from the packet and found them to be the most uncomfortable scissors I have ever used. They hurt your hand to use and do not cut very efficiently. A huge disappointment. Unfortunately it's a 140 mile round trip to my nearest store! 22 December 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Worse than useless Hugely disappointing to buy such a shoddy product from John Lewis. Foolishly because I had such confidence in their own brand I threw the packaging away before trying the scissors out, I will not be making the same mistake in the future, these scissors simply do not cut. Btw 'review' will not accept my 1 star, given the choice I'd have opted for no star at all. 19 October 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by AWFUL I returned these at once. Handles too small for an ordinary woman's hand. Very stiff, quality of cut no better than something from a pound shop. Taken aback that John Lewis buyers would have chosen such scissors. 12 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK but could be sharper Brought these after reading all the good reviews but found that although they did the job of cutting fabric, they weren't as sharp as I would have expected so made cutting a harder job than it should have been. I will try sharpening them and see if that makes a difference but they should be sharp from new. 14 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good sturdy scissors These are really good scissors, comfortable to use and cut really well. I have an old pair of scissors and realised the other day that they were Jonelle, still cutting really well even after 20+ years- say no more! 13 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product I bought these to do some upholstery work and they cut through the thick upholstery material well. A good pair of scissors. 18 April 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value These are easy to handle accurately and not too pricey - just the job. 22 February 2012
