The Kai 7170, 6 2/3 inch sewing scissor is an all-around, powerful cutting tool. The blade is made of a high-carbon stainless steel that ensures a sharp cut, all-the-way to the tip. It also features large handles made of “Elastomer” soft plastic, which are designed for better leverage and ease of handling while cutting. It comes with a free professional sharpening certificate, and free shipping.
Additionally, the Kai 7170, like the Kai 7150, is an ideal size for tasks such as general trimming, cut-work, or any task where larger shears would be too bulky, but cutting power is still desired and necessary.
Again, as with the Kai 7150, the Kai 7170 is also a popular size scissor for use in your sewing/quilting kit when taking classes, and it works great when doing take-along projects as well.
The 7000 series scissors, including the 7170, are made of a high carbon, hardened stainless steel. The addition of carbon allows for a steeper cutting angle, giving the scissor a sharper, finer edge. The carbon also allows the finer edge to be more durable, which in-turn, extends the cutting life of these professional scissors.
