On a scale of one to ten these scissors score a high 8. Ease of Cleaning They can either be washed with a mild soap and warm water or wiped clean with paper towels. I've been using mine for over a year and they have yet to rust. Durability I can cut up a whole chicken without ever having to sharpen them and then switch to cutting up fabric for my daughter's costumes at school with no problem. Design They are sleek and modern in design and the red matches the color scheme of my kitchen.
