One of the main questions I get from new angora rabbit owners is what kind of scissors or shears to use when harvesting wool from their bunny. I have been to a few workshops where all sorts of equipment was used and saw some of what others have come up with. The bottom line is, use whatever is comfortable for you to hold, and keeps a good sharp edge that you can replace when you need to. Electric shears are fabulously efficient if you get the right blades for them; if the motor stays cool enough so you can hold them for awhile and if you get your rabbits used to the sound. Not everyone can afford the hundreds of dollars for the good ones, though.
With my little herd of under 20 adults, for me the 5" scissor with short tips has come to be my staple piece of equipment. I have $45 Fiskars in that length and they work great, but I also have $9 embroidery scissors that work equally as well. The benefit of the $9 scissors is that I can replace them every year and feel very good about it, relegating the old (I write the date I started using them in permanent marker on the handles) ones to general household use.
These scissors I use are extremely easy to handle. The short ends keep the area about to be cut very small, with the likelihood one will snip skin by mistake almost nonexistent. I keep them in stock at Countrywool.
