Scissors - serrated vs. no serrations

I am looking into getting some quality scissors. I was curious about the advantages of one blade vs the other. I currently have two sets of non-serrated scissors, one is poor quality the other has been "good enough." Both came with sets.

Really I don't think there is much of a difference. Serrated are supposed to be better for cutting hair and slick materials, where the non serrated blades the material can slip. I just picked up a pair of Allen arrow points that were 50% off and they are micro serrated and have a notch at the bottom of the blades for cutting wire and stuff like that. They work well all around and only cost like $4.75. They work pretty well for the small stuff also. I don't have any fancy high dollar non serrated scissors to compare them to but they do compare to $15 Dr. Slicks.

Interesting. The only "problem" i have with my current scissors is when clipping the materials that you described (elk/deer hair, CDC and kip tail). Perhaps I'll try the $5 option you described.

Thanks!

Check under deal of the week in Allen's site. They had more styles but they are almost all gone. But I just checked and they still have some of the 3.5" arrow points left.

Here is how i'd go.......invest the largest part of $ in a pair of German made fine point non-serrated ones. Buy a moderately priced pair of serrated with what you have to work with. To be set up proper i think you should spend about $30 bucks.

This is what I do as well. Different scissors for different jobs, my wife commented once about the amount of scissors I have. You just don't know about them until you get them to the table.
