I want something that opens back up on its own... I was thinking those small sewing scissors but I dont know if they would get stuck together or what. any recommendations?

For long trim jobs , nothing beats these. I hate the self openers ( use them for harvesting though).

1st Large Pruners - to chop them down, mid price whatever brand..lol
2nd - Fiskars- see above. For cutting stems and removing large leaves, pre manicure 'tipping' of trichome free smaller leaves
3rd - my FAVORITE scissors cost like 3-4 bucks, there about 4 inches in length and there's a little single hole for your pinky. You crosscut, squeeze with thumb and whatever finger you wish. Tiny little 1 inch blades, you can remove the blades with screws for cleaning and sharpening, I used one pair for 2 years!! 3 bucks!! I coulda used them longer, but I lost them.. Run free!! You've earned a break!!
Ive seen them at every hydro store Ive been in, sorry, no picture, you probably know em.. red or blue.
Incredible control for picky manicurists!
Peace

I know so many people who use those spring loaded ones like GP posted. The ones I use are made with the exact same blades as those , but with finger and thumb holes like regular scissors. I find that the control you get from being attached to them, makes for a much finer product.

The spring loaded ones start to stick together after a while, hindering their ability to pop open, which makes them pretty worthless.

I use these Fiskars

Same as GB, just a bit more comfort IMHO.

those fiskars work pretty good, i went and got like 3 pairs when they had them on sale for 7 bucks. i agree with irie about the spring loaded ones, but only that the springs get weak over time and tend to break. replacement springs can be ordered through your local hydro shop. for the sticking problem, i always keep a glass of alcohol with some olive oil mixed in. i keep about 2 sets of scissors in the cup at a time. so when one set gets gummed up, i just grab the next one, wipe it off with a rag and im good to go. the oil helps to keep your scissors nice and smooth. having more than one pair will decrease the time it takes to trim your buds. im also extremely anal when it comes to trimming my buds, so to each their own.
