12” Wiss! Or spend the $ on the electric ones but they are quite pricey! I think I paid $40-$50 for my Wiss but have had them for a long time and had them sharpened several times!

This is a tip that might help as well... you may already know but if you draw back on the scissors as you cut, they will cut the glass much better.

Wow I'm surprised you fouled up 2 pairs of fiskars - I used the 9" orange handle ones (dressmaker model I believe) on 12oz biax without any problems (even after there was epoxy on the handle and outside surfaces of the blades)

BB has a great tip on method by drawing back as you snip

I use the ones from Milwaukee tools. They have a very fine serration and it gives me less ragged edges than smooth blades and also grips the glass just right. Get them at Home Depot.

I have large Wiss scissors and then use a 400 grit diamond stone 90 degree to the blade to create some tooth. Works well for cutting kevlar as well.

Edit: I use a Falkniven DC4 stone. Fits in your pocket so you can sharpen on the fly. Has a 200 a diamond side and 400 wet stone side.

I bought a pair of fisker amplify fabric scissors for around $25 and worked great. I've used cheap scissors before to cut fiberglass cloth and was pleasantly surprised how much easier it is with a nicer sharper pair.
