Your favourite Fireline cutting tools
Its time to sharpen the cutters I use for my Fireline thread. I am using it lots in my beadwork at the moment and with two pairs of blunt cutters on hand I’ve been wondering what others use to cut their Fireline (or Proline) thread for their beadwork. Searching the Internet for advice on this drew several suggestions that ranged from nail clippers through craft scissors, Fiskars sewing scissors, pliers to Rapala line clippers (a brand of specialist fishing line scissors). Several sites suggested cheap children’s craft scissors. I am trying some of cheaper craft scissors quite successfully at present but wonder how long they will last.
Love to hear what you use and why.
