Default Best braid scissors?

Cheers.

As much as I hate to admit it, the Korda braid blades are about the best I've found.

I have and use Middy's braid scissors, they are also nice and small but watch your fingers and skin.

The small disposable scissors used by hospital nurses. I've spent so much time in hospitals over the last 5 years I have enough of them to last a lifetime.

The small scissors on my Swiss Army multi-tool thingy are pretty good but a bit fiddly for big dumpy fingers.

Over the years I've used: Gardner, ESP and Greys but then I discovered Owner and they have served me well for the past couple of seasons.

As S-Kippy says, they are not cheap but they are the best.

yet another vote for the Owners - they'll even cut braid "on the slack".

I've had a set of fox culprit for years, really good but bulky. Recently got Korda braid blades, again really good but my favourites are Suffix performance blades. They are razor sharp and take up little space in your tackle box(£7ish).

Bought a pair of 'Harris' Braid scissors 15 years ago. Absolutely razor sharp... bloody dangerous in fact.

Still do the job fairly well, obviously not as sharp.

ESP Braid Scissors | HarrisSportsmail.com

Harris - now a merged company - list the 'improved' ESP model. Seems similar but the original anonymous model had orange handles. Did anyone else use these?
