Scissors, like any tools, are only as good as the function they perform and these DOVO scissors are exceptionally good! DOVO scissors were made in Solingen, Germany, and like most German-made products, they're engineered to perfection. Unfortunately DOVO scissors will not longer be manufactured. So if you're in need of scissors, or just want to stock up while you can, these are the best that are available and will give you years of service.
