I carry a couple of wiss thread clips in my travel fly tying box that I am ;) field testing :lol: from my upholstry shop. They take up little room and let you get in tight places. Good for most every application and stay sharp.

I don't particularly like Dr. Slicks. I had a couple of pair that didn't stay very sharp, and I wasn't using them on wire. I use the anvil's because they fit in my hand very nicely. By keeping the scissors in your hand, you really cut down on tying time. I don't see myself going away from the Anvils.

If you tie lots and lots of glo-balls, the Anvil 4" serrated curved are going to be hard to beat, they last a long time, if you buy Dr.Slicks, make sure you get serrated, as for me anyway, they cut deer hair and glo-ball yarn better.

I use a pair of squizzers I bought back in the 90's for the fine work. Surgical steel and a loop design that keeps the blades open till you squeeze them. They are serrated on one side and have served me well. I also have a pair in my travel kit. For hair cutting I use a pair from Kershaw that I cant remember what they were called at the time. Standard design with comfort grips. For all around cutting of big materials, I have a pair of blue Fiskars by Gerber Co. I use them for foam, paper, etc.
