i have loved my WRMK small precision scissors. they're teflon coated too so you don't have to worry about adhesive build up. super sharp and pointed tip.

I LOVE my Cutterbee scissors!
Another vote for Cutterbee. I bought a pair when I first started this hobby....when I had no clue what to get and have never changed brands. I've had many follow in my footsteps after using mine. I have one coated pair and one non-coated. Another favorite Cutterbee tool are the tweezers, they are the best, I've given them as gifts, everyone has loved them.

I love my Cutterbees as well, and since they are at big box stores, quite a deal with a coupon

I know everyone is different but I had cutterbee for years and hated fussy cutting until I got my CTMH ones and now I love to fussy cut well maybe not love but I don't mind it anymore. They now make some with a teflon coating as well.

Cutterbee brand are amazing! I also really like the We R Memory Keepers precision scissors. Not in my case, but I have heard from MANY people that they like their Tim Holtz red handled scissors. Hope that helps!

I love my Cutterbee scissors, I think I have three or four pairs of them floating around my craft room and I do all of my fussy cutting with them.

I have stamping up pair I love for fine cutting. I am tempted though to check out the new tonic scissors that Tim Holtz endorsed.

Another vote for the Cutterbee!

ETA: apparently mine are the black & yellow Honeybees- I thought they were all non-sticky-accumulating, silly me. I am so anti-pink I wouldn't have bought them otherwise.

Another cutterbee fan. I have one plain and one coated.
I don't recommend the red tonic ones for fussy cutting. Mine have a small serration on the blade which means that on some papers you can see all the little "teeth marks" left behind. I use them on chipboard but not on papers.

If you turn the scissors over you don't have the serrated mark

I am scrappy handicapped without my EK Success Titanium Cutterbee scissors. They're sharp, they're precise, and when I started scrapping in 04 they came in beautiful colours like blue and pink. Now they only come in disgusting pink, pink, PINK! Or you can get the Honeybee version which is non-stick and it comes in a yellow/black which is non-offensive. Regardless of colour they're the best scissors I've ever used for precise, sharp cuts, and as I said, I cannot scrap without them.

I recently overpaid from another website just to get my hands on the very last and rarest of the blue and green scissors. Pink is quite prevalent however and you can find them at Michael's. Joann's has the PICTURE of the blue on their website, but they only actually carry pink.

I have forever loved my Teflon coated HoneyBees for precision/fussy cutting. Really and truly, they are the only ones I use for this kind of cutting.

Of note though, I do LOVE LOVE LOVE my Tim scissors. (yes the red handled ones). Get them at Michael's/AC Moore with a coupon for the best deal. They are great for everything!! I do tend to do finer cutting with my HoneyBees though. (the yellow/black handled teflon coated ones that everyone's mentioning).
I also have the pink & blue ones (not teflon coated), they work great. But I love the yellow/black ones better. No sticky!

I lost my Tim Holtz scissors that I loved when we moved and couldn't find it on stores (and could't wait, how can you scrap without scissors ?), so I bought the precision Fiskars scissors with ergonomic handles and love it too !

I love my EK Success Honey Bee scissors... Really great sharp and fine tip, and they're teflon coated so cutting through stickers/adhesive stuff is just as easy as cutting through plain paper...
