      We do a lot of sewing in our home, so I bought Singer Smart Scissors which are a cordless scissors which run on battery. These Scissors have been actively marketed on television, and usually retail for $19.95 CDN, I was lucky to buy them on sale at our local hardware store for $9.95.

When we used them to cut even simple cotton fabric, we repeatedly had to start/stop and switch the scissors off then on again when they jammed.

        I found Singer Smart Scissors difficult to use,

Save your money, stick to regulars scissors, I did.
