Olfa Precision Applique Scissors – Notion Review
I love scissors, most all of us creative types do! These scissors recently came into my life and I felt a notion review was in order. They are called the Olfa Precision Applique Scissors.
When did I first see them?
First time I saw the Olfa Precision Applique Scissors was actually online. Being that I am obsessed with notions in general and scissors PLUS really enjoy using the Olfa brand products I thought I better check them out.

What does the Olfa Precision Applique Scissors look like?
The Olfa Precision Applique Scissors at a glance look like every other small scissors you might have seen before. But upon a closer examination you will find they are actually quiet detailed.
- 5″ tall
- 2-1/2″ wide
- Large holes for up to three fingers
- Symmetrical which makes it easy to pick them from any direction
- Right or Left handed
- Sharp thin stainless steal blade edges
- 2.3mm thick straight-edge stainless steel blades
- Sharpened to the very tip – allowing for clean precise cuts
- Center rivet of stainless steel secures the blade positioning for excellent accuracy while cutting
- Blades extend fully into the handle which offers better stability and pressure distribution
What can they cut?
Seeing how short they are, you might think you can cut through fabric. Truly, you can though and accurate too. Here are just a few of the things you can cut.
