Lakeland Ceramic Scissors 2 "Surprised!" Anne 11 February 2014 I bought these scissors last week and was really pleased with them when I used them. However, when I washed them by hand for the first time, both handles came off! I am disappointed and intend returning them for a refund. A note from the team Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry to hear that the scissors had proved to be faulty, this isn't a problem we've heard of before. I'm glad to hear the the staff at the store were able to issue a refund for you.
