Dr. Slick scissors are perfect to tie artificial flies, they cut very well, their sharpness lasts a long time and their weight is perfect for handling them when you are on the vise. In fact they are neither too light nor too heavy, they are perfectly balanced. The All Purpose Scissors and the Hair Scissors are practically identical in use, and differ only in the length of the blades. They are both perfect for general use when tying: cutting threads, tinsel, feathers and synthetics. The Hair Scissors having longer blades is more suitable to cut long synthetic fibers such as Craft Fur, Supreme Wing Hair, SF. Blend, and also natural fibers such as Bucktail, Roe and all furs that need an excellent tool to be cutted correctly. Then there are specific models, such as the MicroTip Scissors which is perfect to work on very small flies such as dry flies on #16 or #18 such as the Red Tag, the Fly Ant, emerger in Cdc such as the Cdc Foam Quill or the Ephemera Cdc Beige, but it is also excellent to be used in all those patterns where you want to perfectly cut the thread as in Perdigon where the profile is then covered with UV glue and therefore must be perfectly smooth. Another particular scissor is the Razor Scissor which has the characteristic of having an upper wheel with which to adjust the intensity of the cut according to the material to be cut.
