EC-Cutter cordless electric scissors are specifically designed to cut tough fabrics like Aramid, Kevlar, carbon fiber cloth and more. The EC-Cutter features a light weight, ergonomic shape that eliminates the fatigue associated with manual cutting.
A powerful, long lasting rechargeable battery means there is no cord to trip over or get in the way of larger work pieces. Unique half-moon shaped blades are hardened to stay sharper longer than conventional cordless scissors.
Short, rapid strokes mean accurate, clean cuts for intricate work. The short cutting stroke makes the EC-Cutter less suitable for cutting materials thicker than 1/8 inch.
Six month Manufacturer's warranty. The electric scissors are guaranteed free of defects in workmanship for 6 months from date of purchase. Receipts must be retained as proof of purchase.
Electric Scissors and Accessories
Can these scissors be used for dressmaker fabrics? I have a hand problem and cannot use regular scissor easily. I had a Sears plug in model electric scissors for years, but it wore out. I really need a new one.
Yes, they will work great in that application.

Good evening, Do you have option on this cutter for 220 volts?Best Regards Cristian
Sorry, not available in 220 volt.
While I can recommend it in general, I am sorry, I don't have this option for the EC Cutter. Best of Luck,
How much does this cutter weigh?
It is pretty light, like less than a pound. The battery gives it a little heft, but it is not heavy to work with for hours on end. I use mine to cut fiberglass cloth of various weights, very effective. It is a good tool. I'd give it a 9/10 with pounts off for durability (don't drop it on the concrete floor), it chipped when dropped. Otherwise it works as advertised.
I don't know what it weighs, a little more than a pair of scissors; however, since it zips through material as fast as it does, you don't have to hold it very long. We have had ours for over two years now, and love it. Cutting out patterns for blue jeans is a breeze.
10 oz? i have rhuematoid arthritis in my hands and can use the cutter all day
How hard is it to change blades? I have a very hard time with this. Love the way they cut!
I too have a hard time changing the blade. I still have NOT been able to do so.
I just got an email from Jamestown Distributors about someone wanting to know how long the cutting blades for the electric cordless scissors have lasted, and now that question has been removed from the web site, I can still answer the question, I have cut over 100 yards of carbon fiber cloth and probably 300 yards with the second set of blades, the first ones did not last very good, I forgot to clean the epoxy off them well enough and had to replace them after the first use. My stupidity not a problem with the blades.?
Yes, we'll post your question and answer. Thanks
will the scissors cut through shag carpet ?
Maybe.. I use my scissors for sewing. I have cut upholstery vinyls without problem and furs. You would have to get to the base and pull the carpet out of the way.As long as you are aiming to cut the base and the base isn't too thick, it should cut.I love these scissors.
No, I don't think these scissors are meant for anything this thick.
how long does it run on the battery & how many battery come with the kit?
I don't know how long it runs. I charge between uses. But if you forget, there is a corded option for these scissors.
I really can't say how long it runs on the battery as we only use it for 10 minutes or so at a time and replace it on the charger after use. We received one battery with the cutters. The kit comes with an adapter to run on standard 120V electric that eliminates the battery and lets it run indefinitely.
The corded option is included. I have never needed to purchase an extra battery.
Hi, the battery will last about 1.0 hours with continuous use with heavy materials, and all day with light materials intermittently. It's a small battery, 3 cells, 1.3V each, around. best to have a spare. I bought one, and use it a lot. when I notice the cutter slowing, I simply switch to the fresh one, and charge the other. Hope to be of help.
We use these in our plant for cutting film and weave type material. Bottom screws on the blade heads are constantly falling out and getting lost. How would I go about getting spares?
I also had issues with a faulty cord and I finally (!!) tracked down the manufacturer's distributor---they were extremely helpful and sold to me what I needed at a reasonable price:Wolff Industries, Inc 107 Interstate Park Spartanburg, SC I would include their phone numbers but this question/answer site will NOT allow me to include phone numbers or email addresses--sorry! You will have to google their number!Hope this helps! I stocked up with extras, you may want to do the same!
I did not think this was a good product at all.I could not get it to stay charged.I would not want any other parts as it never worked well from the beginning.
Never had this issue happen. We use ours on fabric. I would contact EC Cutter or use a product that I use on bolts or screws called thread lock. This product can be purchase at most department stores or auto part stores. I had to use this product on vehicles or machinery that is critical for items not to back out.

Would this scissor be suitable for cutting carpet and fiber carpet pad?
I love the scissors but no, I don't think they would cut carpet but they would cut the foam padding that goes under carpet.
Pas maybe but I don't think they would cut carpet very well
Not sure. We have only used them to cut fabric.
I would say no. About 1/4" of thickness is the most I would cut with these. Perfect for fabric or layers of paper.
Hi Sean,I have found this scissor will cut about 4-5 layers of light weight cotton well, but they are not strong enough to cut carpet.
We cut through fabric with these all of the time. I have never tried cutting carpet with them but I think carpet would be a little bit too heavy for these small scissors that we use. Sorry I couldn't be of more help but I wouldn't want to mislead you. I know they cut through our thickest fabrics that we have quite easily but these are fabrics without a backing on them that are used for sewing purposes.

Do these scissors work for cutting several thicknesses of paper?
Hi. I wish I could answer your question with authority, but I did not purchase the scissors for myself. I work at a company with over 5,000 employees, and am in the safety department. We bought the scissors as an ergonomic measure for an employee using "hand" scissors to cut upholstery. I heard initially that they were "great" but I don't know how long they lasted or if they might still be being used. I would speculate, though, that they are capable of cutting several thicknesses of paper, depending of course on how thick it actually is.
Yes they can very well. They are very strong and last pretty long.
It would depend on the thickness of the paper. I use them to cut double pieces of cotton fabric and they work very well for that. I really like that they are not battery-operated but have a power supply.
I bought them for fabric, so they do go through several thickness of fabric, which is thicker than papet
This product saved my business.
I have been using the EC Cutter for several months and had to submit a review because it's an invaluable tool for my business. I sew items made from recycled firefighter turnout gear and I could no longer cut the Nomex fabric with the scissors I had. I quickly dulled all of the very good quality scissors that I owned and I was hurting my hand each time that I would cut the fabric. The EC Cutter solved the problem and the battery life is surprisingly long.
These cutters are easy to use and comfortable in your hands. The carbide edge on the blades mean they will last longer than most electric scissors. The added bonus is that they will work with the cord plugged in or cordless. I'm sure I will be able to cut many, many yards of fleece with these
I thought the product would be more robust
The first time I tried putting the battery in, I could not. As the product is fragile, I was afraid to force and break it. After analyzing better the situation, I had to trim edges with light duty knife to fit the battery right. I think a manual heavy duty scissors is a better option.

This product is working well so far.
Were using this product for production cuts of material for speaker grills so far its cut our production Times and fatigue for our employees. Besides cutting fabric we use it to cut thin stainless steel screen also, I'm sure ill have to buy extra blades eventually, what surprised me is that the battery keeps a good charge so far so good.
I am purchasing additional blades.
This cuts kevlar!!This is not your average set of electric shears. It out cuts them all. You can actually cut two plys of kevlar at once.Of course it also cuts other fabrics like fiberglass and carbon fiber, Dacron, plastic etc. I have purchased several sets of shears, and nothing I have tried cuts like these. My wife is a seamstress, she has several pairs of different name brand electric shears, none of them cut with the ease and precision that these do. I read the negative reviews, and they are partially correct, it is a little noisy (not too), it has poor workmanship. It does not fit together very well, the blade is difficult to change. And it is very expensive. But they do what they are supposed to do. THEY CUT! Even kevlar. Nothing else cuts kevlar. They do.
I had no idea how much I would need them
I restored a 1982 13.4 coho runabout fiberglass boat, this was the 1st time I had ever work with fiberglass before. I was using scissors, that was tuff. I was talking to a friend that use to build boats, he mention that they used electric scissors! so I started looking for elect scissors and found these, WOW these scissors plowed through everything that I asked them to do. I could never done this without them, This is one of the best tools that I have ever bought and i'm 61
Couldn't have worked my job without this cutter.
I broke my wrist and was unable to use even spring scissors to do my cutting. These were so lightweight and well balanced that it took no pressure at all only guidance to cut through layers of fabric. My husband has had to help a lot with cutting and has become totally addicted to these for ease of use. I will be purchasing another when these break, so far I have had them 4 years and they are still going strong. My con was that I had to wait 6 hours for my husband to get home to take the battery and put it on the charger then into the back of the cutter, I had 0% strength to do this at first, now I have no problem.
I was looking for a product like this.
Cutting fabric, both light and heavy for projects. Works excellent for cutting thin leather for projects.
great pair of electric cordless scissors
I have a Longarm Quilting Business and these cordless electric scissors are a great time-saver when cutting fabrics and battings.
I would buy this item again.
Use the scissors to cut fabric. Examples: Kevlar, carbon, glass etc.
