    I have had a pair of maver triples for nearly 20 years and are still good. Tried the 5 blade type and the shredding scissors but the blades were too close and just kept gumming up. Mavers for small amounts, speedy chopper for large amounts.

    I bought two pair of houshold scissors, from Tesco if I remember rightly, then used insulation taped to tape them together. I've been useing them for 7 or 8 years now and they are still sharp and make short work of any quantity of worms. As they have big handles to get your fingers trough I don't get the cramp in my fingers I use to get with the tackle shop bought worm scissors.

    Bait tub in your lap, using both hands hold the scissor handles between index finger and thumb with the scissors pointing down, you should now be able to chop to your hearts content with no cramp. Relax your grip as well.
