Questions & Answers

Are there any weeds that I can cut?

This little pair of Fiskars scissors is a decent product and just what I needed when I bought it. While they are quite small and therefore have to be located and unfolded, they are quite sharp and seem to retain their cutting edges well even after a number of uses. The reason I use them more often than full size scissors is that I find the blades do a better job cutting sometimes than full size scissors! Yes, they also cut weeds (unless they are woody or thick stems). Since their finger holds are quite small, especially if you have big fingers like mine, it's sometimes a little tough to keep a good grip on them.

Have you been approved by TSA?

My name isn't Dave and I'm not a TSA agent. Their approval is not needed for nail clippers. There is no chance that they would approve anything that has There may be a 2" rule, but I'm not sure. The clothes you can damage with these are quite severe. There will be a limit on the length of your finger later on.

Is it possible to use them (sharp enough) to trim a man's beard or mustache?

They will come as they are. The answer is no, but you can have scissors and other bladed items professionally sharpened, and then they may be sharp enough for a comfortable trim or two, but since they are meant more for crafting, they may not hold an edge that is comfortable for trimming for very long. Rather than buying these there are some that fold up similar to these, and would probably be better to spend the few dollars more on travel hair or beard trimmers.

When they are closed, they are about 2 inches long. In terms of diameter and depth (thickness), how large and deep ?

It is 5/16" thick, 1" wide at the widest part, and 2 1/2 " long when folded.

Selected User Reviews For Fiskars 01-005434 Travel Folding Scissors, 6 Inch, Orange

An effort is required to open it and chain mail gloves are needed to close it
3/5

The following is a brief summary of the phenomenon As you know, I always buy cutting tools from Fiskars, and this one turned out to pose a bit of a safety hazard. I haven't been injured yet, fortunately. When opening these scissors, you have to exert some effort- Having to close my hands is much more difficult, since I have to use the bottoms of my shirts and jacket sleeves to protect my hands. The rest of the time, they're a great tool for needlework while traveling. The reviews would have gotten me to consider this before I purchased it.

Design that is extremely risky
3/5

As a Fiskars fan, I have been a fan of the brand for quite some time. Based on my previous positive experience with the brand, I find this product inadequate. It does not matter if I am unfolding or cutting with them - they will work fine The finger loops are uncomfortable for me, so I only rate it as "okay" since the scissors work but the finger loops are just "okay. " I haven't given my rating a negative spin for that reason. The finger of the tool used to fold or unfold folding scissors should be adequately protected as the tool is folded and This doesn't apply to these. It is very easy to launch a sharp edge or two past the finger when folding The attachment pulls through the skin and into one's loops (see image attached). In the event that I'm extra careful, I may figure out a workaround to this problem, but why should I? I think Fiskars could make a better design if they had done so Make the loops larger and use a larger shield to contain the blades, for example - It would better protect consumers from injury without putting them at risk either in terms of time or money.

It's always a good idea to have scissors for cutting that aren't going to be folded
3/5

In my opinion, these scissors offer great functionality, and I thought they would be easier to use because of the sturdy design. Basically, it's like they built scissors folded that can also cut, but the actual movement of flattening and re-folding it is what really matters. The position of the folder is secondary to that of the ends. It is very difficult to manipulate, and there is no built-in sliding to support you if you are not "doing it right. ". Fiskars is a great brand, but this particular product does not appeal to me too much.

You slice it and dice it! The Folding Fiskars scissors are relatively sharp and dangerous, even though Fiskars is normally an excellent brand of scissors
3/5

It is almost impossible to unfold them and they are very rigid once they are After I sliced my thumb pretty badly trying to open them, I stopped using my thumb. When the bleeding had stopped and my thumb had been patched up, I attempted to spray the scissors with WD40, but it was rendered useless. There was no loosing of the scissors and I couldn't close them It promptly went in the trash along with the other two I ordered and wasn't Perhaps you would have better success with Fiskars than I did, as they are a reputable brand. Keep an eye on it I have seen them in person, and they are amazing!.

The perfect backpack for traveling! These were taken on a backpacking trip I took for two days
5/5

Though I initially thought I wouldn't require them, I developed blisters on the balls of my feet during the second day. In order to protect those areas, I used the scissors to cut pieces of moleskin. There's nothing I love more than In my capacity as an art teacher, I only order Fiskar products. They make a number of garden tools too, which I also own. They do a great job with these little scissors. I cut right through the moleskin and sticky tape without any issues at all.

A Fiskars product is of the highest I find it very useful
5/5

It is not possible to purchase these at a craft store. I keep one in my car's change holder and my wife keeps one in her In addition to cutting very well, all the Fiskars products, from scissors to hedge trimmers, do as well. If you have a steel handle with rotary rotation, I highly suggest putting a little oil there. Several times open and close the doors until they are loose and easy to open.

The two models are In this matchup, Finland competes against I ordered these scissors twice and ended up getting two different generations of the scissors, these "Finland" scissors and these "China" scissors
4/5

In contrast to the product I received circa 2012, the "Finland" model had a stiffer plastic handle and wider This project had a 1 out of 10. The blade thickness is 2mm, and only the primary grind is used. The handle of the tool was imprinted with the logo "Fiskars Finland. ". It's easier to read the newer China model circa 2016 because the handles are thinner, almost flimsy. As a result, my finger holes are considerably smaller and now bind painfully against my thumb when I use them. There are two main components to the China model. With an eighth inch blade thickness and two rounds of grinding, the edge is both primary and secondary. There is no marking on the new model of scissors, not even a brand name, giving the scissors a generic appearance Fiskars, however, is not the same A bubble pack marked "Made in China" appears on the package. These scissors were convenient and handy, a bit off-sized compared to stowaway scissors, which was nice. There was always a tendency for them to stick together when unfolded. It's not the end of the world, at least they are folded now. However, you may not be able to do this Could China be the new The caveat emptor principle applies across the board. I had reviewed and rated the original Finland model in my original review. A binding finger hole has caused me to give the China model 2 out of 5 stars.

It's useful and compliant with TSA rules
4/5

When we traveled to Costa Rica, these items made a great addition to our first aid kits. The scissors did not cause any issues with transportation, and I used them to cut some moleskin for a blister that was developing. Easy to use!.
