Rated 1 out of 5 by ACW14 Very poor quality product
I had read the reviews before buying this product and I was concerned about the two reviews which reported that these relatively cheap shears chewed up the fabric. Nevertheless, I bought them optimistically, confident in the John Lewis brand and trusting the reviewers who had had a more positive experience. I bought them to make bunting and have tried them on about ten different pieces of fabric this evening - all thing cottons - and it only cut one well, and only for a while. I will be returning them. I'm annoyed at the inconvenience this has caused as I will not be able to complete my bunting project in time.

Very disappointed! I have always been pleased with John Lewis and their products but after buying these scissors, about a month ago along with other items, I've tried using them several times but each time I found that they don't cut but rather they 'chew' the fabric. I haven't got the packaging but I do have the receipt so I intend to take them back to the shop and hope that I can replace with a better pair or offer a refund.

I really wish I had spent more money & bought the more expensive ones. These struggle to cut some material with a nice crisp edge.

I had pinking shears in my first proper sewing kit when I was 16 (a long time ago). They were heavy and would often stick mid cut. They were not John Lewis. Needless to say they did not get used often and eventually went in the bin. So I was cautious when I decided to buy a pair to make bunting. I needn't have worried...not only were they a great price, they are not heavy, have good handles and give a clean & precise cut. The bunting turned out very well and looks highly professional. Thank you John Lewis!

I'd been looking in many places for the right pair of 'old style' pinking shears. I was so pleased to find these and in perfect time for a friend's birthday too. Thanks JL

Very sharp scissors that are so far cutting the material with ease. The scissors are a good quality pair.
