Wow. To be fair I didn't really know what to expect up until I tried them out in our practice. Now to me, these are a little heavy for my hands personally, but if you are looking an example of robust quality and finishing, you really can't look any further. Not a single detail has been spared, right down to the way they open and close to how they cut. Combine that with what you pay and it's pretty much a no brainer.
