Ok after 45 years of tying my favorite scissors have had it. I tie mostly nothing bigger than a #16 and have a pair for the bigger stuff. What is your recommendation for a pair with fine points that will last. thanks dave

The tungsten carbide 3 1/2" arrow scissors from Dr. Slick are terrific. They cost around $27.00.

Look Here:

Look at the bottom left hand corner of the picture, and click on the middle pic for the 3 1/2 " arrow point.

Try this:

Buy several pair, they're cheap enough.

Edit:

I should add that these are close outs on Dr. Slicks. $4 a pair, several styles to choose from. Not the carbide, but durn good scissors....

I used to use Dr. slick razzor scissors but had got a pair of the carbide and have to say that overall there the best I've ever had. they really hold an edge until you drop them on the floor point first. :cry: Just ordered a new pair.

I have been using the Kershaw Skeeter and like them, they have regular and serrated edge.
I picked mine up from a local knife shop but they are available online.

Thanks for the heads up on the Dr Slick scissors on Sierra Trader. Bought a couple of pairs of the short and long bladed. Bought a couple of pairs of the hemostats for crimping barbs to.

Have you tried these or heard of anyone who has, I picked up some cheap ones like this without the finger ring for rodbuilding and was not pleased with the quality, but I did like the idea.
