Ok so I recently bought a pair of them with the red handles and whenever I go to use them or try to cut something it feels really tight .. Like the two scissor blades moving together to cut something is very tight. I hope I'm making sense.. I was wondering if this was normal for those scissors? Or is it just mine? It's hard for me to use them because they are so tight & I'm not sure if they can be adjusted where the bolt/screw part is that holds the scissors together? I'm a hair stylist and my hair scissors I use can be adjusted by turning the screw .. Has anyone else had this problem? Can it be adjusted in any way? Thx

Sorry you are having problems. Mine are not tight and feel like normal scissors. I would call their customer service and hopefully they can help you out.

I'd call their customer service as well because I have these scissors and don't have any problems with them. I know what you're saying about being able to adjust them like you would shears but I'm not sure. I'll have to look at mine.

Thanks! That's exactly what i wanted to know of it was normal or not! I'm glad it isn't so I know I can return them for a new pair.. I can hardly even use them because it literally hurts my hands after a few mins. I'm gonna exchange them.. That's for the reply!

Well one of the main reason I bought these scissors was because of the excellent reviews! Before I was using kitchen type scissors.. Don't get me wrong they are the cheapest and BEST scissors to this date that I have ever used! They slide through paper like butter! I have spent lots of money on scissors in the past for fabric and crafts and so on! I love the style, the feel & everything else about the red scissors! Im just gonna give them a call & see what they say! For Christmas my DF got me the fiskars spring action scissors the ones that look like gardening sheers & there AMAZING! But not so great for cutting longer strips of paper!

I love the Tim scissors,and I have never had a problem with them. They get workout,too! I cut all kinds of weird stuff to go on layouts--chicken wire,Brillo pads,etc. Call customer service!

Actually, I DO recall mine feeling stiff when I first got them, but they were fine after the first day of using them. They rock; even cut metal button shanks & wire!

I agree, they can be a little stiffer new but not 'hurt your hand' hard to use. I'd take them back also. I have 2 pair and neither were stiff or hurt my hand in any way.
