While Kai Scissors are sold in stores, the company enjoys going to a quilt show like Road to California to meet with customers face to face. Jeff Belvill, Director at Kai Scissors, says that they always have an overwhelming response from consumers when they try out in person Kai’s line of scissors, knives, and beauty tools. What are Kai’s most popular quilting scissors? Their Professional 7000 series, especially the 7230. The 7230 is a 9-inch professional scissor, ideal for thicker, more difficult fabrics. Considered a light weight scissor, it is suited for people with smaller hands and is effective for any project. When at Road’s 2018 quilt show, Jeff offered these tips on how to care for your quilting scissors and keep them sharp for optimum use:
Sharpen the Blade all the Way to the TipAny reputable sharpener can sharpen your scissors safely.

Use a Tip ProtectorWhen not in use, prevents ruining tips from accidental drops on the floor.
