OK. I finally felt that I should weigh in. I’ve been using a pair of
Joyce Chen kitchen scissors for. oh, about 10 years. Yes, I use them
to cut silver (easy up to 26 ga, less so on 24 ga and 22 ga is
limited to short, straight cuts) and copper sheet. Really great for
trimming off excess backing around the bezel.
The handles are made of a flexible plastic and do feel like they
will give way, but they don’t. Yesterday I cut out several copper
pieces in 21 ga sheet. Slow and steady, no problem. That includes
inside curves too.
The blades are very sharp and I’ve nipped my finger, so be careful.
One disadvantage is that the sheet can be inadvertently scarred
during cutting those inside curves and the metal really curls. One
has to use the scissors and experiment a bit to understand how to
avoid those scars.
Will I buy them again? Heck, yes. if they ever need replacing!

KABOOM!!! Really startled me out of sleep.
