I Can Shred My Private Things At Home
By Mack the Ripper

About Me Technically Challenged
Comments about Shredder Scissors:
I have this item very near where I open my mail. If there is anything I think needs shredding before discarding, I can do it myself. I wish the product made bigger cuts..the blades are fairly long, but multiple cuts are needed to shred each item. I like getting rid of things I want shredded when I want them gone: I don't have to store them & wait to haul them to a shredder bin/event where I have to trust them to shred my personal documents. However, because the product is so time-consuming, if I had a large stack of documents, I would have to go to a shredder bin. Overall, I'm glad I have this product for everyday use, and I recommend it highly.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Gearhead
I bought this to be able to quickly shred mail as soon as it comes in, without making any loud noise to wake up my babies when napping. It also, cuts herbs.
Its a keeper!!!!!
from Boston, MA
I bought the scissors because someone in my building bought one and he said it was okay. Its easy to use mostly one sheet at a time. Two sheets or more doesn't seem to work and it jams. Also, it is better to shred at an angle instead of up, down, or sideways because the latter, you can still read the information you are trying for someone else not to read. Overall, it is a keeper.
Does the Job

I use them to shread items with adhesive backing
Works very well.
I use it to cut up items like address labels and other items that have adhesive backing. They work well. I have a shreader for the other junk mail.
Great idea,but doesn't fit my larger fingers.Feel it must have been designed in a country where hands are much smaller.It doesn't allow you to cut many pieces at once without binding.Great product to have on hand for limited use,when needed.

I bought one and it works to shred papers but then I washed it and used it to shred fresh herbs. I bought another one! My brother begged me for it when he saw how I was using these scissors. Since he has RA, I couldn't refuse. One tip I will offer is, take a paper towel tube, flatten it and staple one end. After you've washed and dried the scissors, slide them into the tube. This will protect the blades and your fingers from knicks and cuts.

The only thing this is good for is shredding those old credit cards. Paper easily jams in between the blades, and can only cut through 2 sheets of paper with difficultly.
Not so Instantly
from New Orleans
Anything more than 1 piece of paper at a time too time consuming and jamming occurs often.
from Dallas, TX
Good for shredding old checks; however,scissor tends to clog if too many pages are used, and then hard on the hands when shredding. Otherwise, in general, it's a handy gadget to have around instead of the larger electrical units.
One Sheet at a time!
from Haymarket, VA
Jams on large (8'X10") sheets and if more then two sheets are involved. Handle too small for normal mens hands
from Pensacola, FL
This is a good idea and works well for paper products. However, for the plastic address mailings, they don't work as well.
The scraps are readable
About Me Quality Oriented
The strips are readable. I used two cuts at 90 degrees, OR, one cut for the multiple strips, the other with a very good pair of regular scissors, cutting very fine and tiny strips
This is a great product

Love this product. I use it for shredding my name and address on disguarded mail and documents before trashing. It is easier and better to use than my large electric shredder.I also use it for finely chopping herbs such as parsley and basil etc. Great product/ Makes my life easier

Cut away worries.
from Fort Worth, Tx
Don't have to worry about paper jams or clogged cutters. Very happy with product and have recommended to friends.
Convenient for getting rid of all those junk mail addresses.
from Flower Mound, TX
used to shred envelopes with name and address, also good on magazine covers with name and address. Scissors are very sharp and have stayed that way since purchase.
