Buy yourself a good quality pair of scissors, because they will last you a lifetime if you look after them. I get my scissors sharpened about every three months at a knife sharpening place. They guarantee that the scissors are sharpened using a diamond sharpening disc. I have found that if my scissors are sharpened with a standard sharpening tool, they end up with a burr on them. But when they are done with the diamond disc, they come back sharp and no burrs. Let everyone know that your scissors are 'OUT OF BOUNDS' to everyone but you. Have a pair of cheaper paper cutting scissors in a kitchen door for everyone else to use. Everyone knows if they touch my scissors they are in big trouble.
