When the package said razor edge, it meant it. I bought a new pair of scissors, and they are wonderful. I have had no trouble cutting anything including my finger. I had cut a small piece of fleece and left some fussies on the scissors, so I just slid the blade between my two pinched fingers. With that little move, I filet my finger open, luckily on my left hand, unluckily right on the pad of the finger. So, for a little while, I am functioning with one less finger.
