All of the shears that came in this kit are pristine, and the case that came with it is noticeably high quality. I shot for the 17 tooth chunkers in my kit, and they’re wonderful at blending. Straights cut seamlessly, and the curves do too. No catching, just perfect cuts. They’re comfortable to hold, and the finger inserts they come with are too. I also got a pair of the 7 inch thinning shears on the side, and those are just as wonderful. I’m very happy with my purchase.
