I bought these 4 inch curved scissors as a gift for myself years ago and they are my go-to pair of little scissors. The blades are curved so it's easier to trim threads close to fabric without fear of snipping into your project by mistake. The blades are narrow and sharp and strong so they can cut into small, tight areas. I actually use them to clip small pieces of fabric and thread in sewing, quilting, appliqué and embroidery project. They're durable double-plated chrome over nickel.
