    Not the same quality as US made units…, October 15, 2011

    I have several pairs of Fiskars scissors that I bought about 10 years ago. When I looked for another pair I knew going in that Fiskars no longer made this scissor in the US, but I hoped that wouldn’t matter. I was wrong.

    I noticed several differences on the currently-shipping unit:

    1) Under the logo imprinted on the blade, it no longer says “USA”. No surprise there.
    2) The blade steel is considerably thinner and the edges are rough cut.
    3) The steel seems to be of poor quality. It has a less consistent texture and color than the US made pair, but I have to admit that may have something to do with their choice of finish…
    4) The steel finish on my old pair was brushed, while the new has a linear rough cut appearance. You can clearly see the tooling marks on the steel. It looks and feels cheap.
    5) The quality of the plastic used for the handles feels rougher, cheaper, and I noticed a couple rough edges left over from the molding process.

    To be honest, I don’t care where something is made as long as the quality is outstanding. It’s clear, however, that since Fiskars moved manufacturing to China the scissors are no longer the quality item they used to be. The corner-cutting in materials and manufacturing quality are quite evident. If you want quality, look elsewhere.

    I had purchased these to replace my old Fiskar Classic. Those were sturdy and a full 8″. They could rip through any box I needed to open or break down. These new ones are 1/2″ shorter (go figure), very light, has a recycled handle (no problem, except it isn’t sturdy), and the scissors do not fully close. Of course, as with most items, they are now made in China (rather than Finland). Not only that, I have purchased 3 other various Fiskar models in the last 3 months and all 3 are very disappointing. I am debating a 4th, but “fool me once…”

    Whereas the old Fiskar 8″ scissors used to be a very high quality product, I was very dismayed to find that this is not the case for the ones they are currently producing. Rather, they are banking on the good name of the past to sell you a low quality product.

    The main differences – no longer are the blades connected with a steel rivet, rather they are now connected with a cheap screw and plastic end. The blades themselves, while they used to be stamped stainless, are no longer. The cut of the blade is much more haphazard than it used to be, and some of the angled cuts that would add to production cost are missing. The scissors used to open and close with a nice fluidity but these have sticky points. The feel of the orange handles comes across as cheaper than the old ones.

    Don’t be fooled by the good brand name of the past on this item.
