I bought this well over a year ago after purchasing some scissors from a local store that couldn't even cut paper. I was pleasantly surprised to find that these things cut magnificently. I'm able to get a good, even trim on my beard and mustache. Every inch of these scissors is capable of cutting hair, even the very tip. I haven't had any situations where the hair doesn't cut and gets wedged between the blades. These are reliable scissors that cut consistently and cleanly. They are definitely worth the price.
