I am currently using a generic genitalia pair of scissors for preparing nematocera (snipping of wings, end of abdomen etc) something like this:

However it doesn't seem sharp/precise enough. Any suggestions for better scissors for preparing small nematocera ?

Thanks, Joris

For those interested: I bought some second hand surgical scissors of the aesculap brand from ebay with which I am much happier.
