I am not a pro barber, but I have had some experience in maintaining my family members' haircuts for years. Those times, I had pretty good professional shears too, but I left them behind when I moved to a new place. Now I needed to cut someone's hair again, so I purchased these shears. My choice was mostly based on very good reviews and a reasonable price.
The shears surpassed all my expectations. They have very comfortable grip, they are convenient to work with and extraordinary sharp! With these shears, I can cut hair ends half an inch from my fingers without the hairs slipping along the edges. This is how barber's shears ought to be!
Let me comment on some complaints in other reviews. Yes, the shears come wet in the transparent plastic pack, but this is not water, and they are not used. This is high quality clean machine oil to avoid stains. Well, I am not sure why stainless still needs to be protected from stains… Of course, the fine cutting edge may be more susceptible… Anyway, it's better to be safe than sorry. Just wash the scissors with soap and soft sponge after receiving and you'll be all set.
Another common complaint is small hole where the thumb does not fit. The first thing they teach you at barber's courses is that you should never push your thumb through the hole (see the picture labelled "Wrong"). You should put only the tip of the thumb inside (see "Right"). This is because you should be able to quickly fold the shears in your hand ("Hand folded") and then use the thumb and forefinger to hold the comb ("Use comb"). Well, if your ring finger does not fit into the hole, that would be a different matter; you won't be able to use the shears. Just in case, the ring finger hole is 13/16" by 5/8" (21 by 16 mm), something like #9 finger ring size (USA).

Shears are Excellent!!!
I am a barber and these shears are excellent!!! I originally bought a pair 6" shears from Sally's beauty supply for $60. Just wanting a second set and a pair of thinning shears, I figured why not spend half the price & buy this set, but I was amazed with the quality and durability of the shears these are excellent! They're also sharper and cut way better than the ones I bought from Sally's beauty supply. I recommend these to anyone who works as a professional barber or hairstylist. You will not be disappointed!!!

Very good sheers!
It’s very nice sheers I’m a barber and cut a lot I used first one my kids and it was very good! I go through so much sheers because we really don’t have a person to sharpen them. I also own a pair of sheers that you can change the blades!
Very impressed with these will buy more shipping was fast and so far so good! Cuts clean and more..

AMAZING Is the word to describe the scissors
AMAZING Is the word to describe the scissors. They are extremely sharp and you must be careful when cutting. However, I have never used a scissor that cut through hair with so much ease and precision. Will definitely order more. If you are undecided, go ahead and make this purchase that you will not regret. I was not paid or rewarded in any way to present my review.

Great results, even for an amateur
I ordered these to replace an old pair that had broken. I’m not a professional, but I do like to be able to trim my hair between haircuts, especially when traveling. I’ve watched my stylist enough to know that trimming my haircut with thinning shears like these give much better results than using scissors. Even my stylist is impressed with my between-cut trims. I never travel without these.

Really good scissors at an amazing price
Really good scissors at an amazing price! I did have to wipe oil droplets off the scissors when I first opened the package, but they open and close smoothly and the blade is sharp enough to give a nice smooth cut. I also find them quite comfortable to hold.

Good Scissors for the Price
After one haircut, the scissors seem to be well made and are sharp. With particularly thin hair they may require some additional effort to cut and not fold the hair. Comfortable grip. Tension knob is larger than it appears in pictures. No case included.

Pro shears indeed!
I have had them for about two weeks, but they are definitely solid for doing exactly what i want to do. Be careful as they are sharp and should be handled with care. Very easy to clean and maintain. They came very quickly also.

Sharp and Sleek
Use these to cut off split ends between hair appointments to keep my hair healthy. The blades are super sharp and the finger rings are a great fit for my hand. I also like that there's a small bumper between finger rings, so that there isn't any metal hitting metal sounds while cutting.

These worked well for me.
These worked great for my needs. I'm not a professional but I like to trim my hair at home using the Curly Girl method (it's hard to find someone who knows how to cut my fine curly hair). They are very sharp and come in a nice case that has a spot for another set of scissors.
