Tools from Tonic Studios
Tonic Studios offers some of the nicest scissors and tools we've seen. Tonic Studios was started in 2001 by a team of people with years of knowledge and passion about the craft industry. The owner and the chief product designer are also some of the nicest people we met at HIA! They have created a line of cutting products that really work, and their products are an excellent value.
With soft touch handles and hardened steel precision ground blades, these scissors are designed for superior comfort, accuracy and strength.
All of Tonic's products are ergonomically designed, and Tonic scissors have an amazingly comfortable Kushgrip handle. Kushgrip is a soft, tactile, rubber like material molded onto Tonic scissors to provide a comfortable, non-slip grip. The material has been designed to enable hours of effortless cutting.
We tried all of these scissors, and we love them!
Tonic’s non-stick scissors have one serrated blade and one sharp blade for excellent cutting on all types of material – including lightweight metal, sheet rubber, vinyl and adhesive backed papers. The non-stick coating prevents a build up of adhesive.
Tonic small non-stick scissors (5"): $11.95
Some of our favorite scissors in Tonic's line, these spring-action scissors feature a spring action and Kushgrip handles which reduce the hand fatigue. These spring-cut scissors are excellent for detail cutting, and the handy locking mechanism and protective blade cover make these great for traveling.

Among Tonic's innovations are a Thread Cutter -- great not just for cutting thread or fibers, but for distressing paper! -- and a Yarn Cutter. Both have a comfortable Kushgrip thumb-hold. Available separately or in a set, these new tools come with a lanyard so you can wear them around your neck as you work. The new Tim Holtz DVD from PageSage, "Tim Holtz: The Journey Continues," shows several uses for these handy tools.
