For maximum performance and longer scissor life, two main rules apply when choosing scissors for tying. First, match the scissor to the types of materials you tie with most often. Most scissors in the Dr. Slick line can handle both natural and synthetic materials with ease, but if you tie predominantly with synthetic materials, consider the new generation of scissors like Tungsten Carbide, Razor and Prism that are designed to handle these materials. Second, match the scissor to the size and type of flies you tie. If you tie small flies without much mass or material, use small finer blade scissors like Arrow, MicoTip and Iris. Conversely, if you tie larger flies, with more mass and material, consider larger scissors with heavier blades like All Purpose, Hair or Razor. Great scissors make great flies!
