Not anymore. They come from Pakistan, Indonesia, India, and all the other
places most hobby shop tools come from, and they're the same inferior

It's cheaper to discard than reprocess.

I recently had a close encounter with a feral cat. Long story short, I now
have two slightly used surgical scissors and the same for tweezers. And
thought hospitals still autoclaved and re-used these things!

They were terrible. The points would cross if any pressure was applied and
they wouldn't pick up the smallest decals. I took this groups'
recommendation (from Bill Welch?) and bought a Tamiya set and they are

In fact I bought another set just in case the first were misplaced, stolen
by the wife or accidently tossed.

Thanks for the recommendation,
