Looking for some suggestions/recommendations for a good pair of scissors.

I would love to have a "good" pair of scissors for around the house. I have always bought cheaper pairs of scissors ($10 range) and get a couple of years out of them and replace them when I need to; no complaints there.
But now I am wondering, is there a pair of "good" scissors that I could purchase that would be the last pair of scissors I ever need to buy????
I am looking for a pair (and why am I saying "pair" when I only want one set/unit of scissors?) that would be considered an "all purpose" or multi purpose pair of household or hardware scissors. I am NOT looking for scissors for cutting fabric (or craft scissors).
I want a set of scissors that I can use for everything - cutting paper, tape, cardboard, the occasional piece of fabric (but only to cut something off for example - not for sewing, etc). I would love to have a rugged set that I wouldn't mind getting sharpened, etc.
I know there are brands like Fiskars and Gingher that I have seen in fabric stores, and I don't mind buying these, as long as they would be good for all purpose around the house.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Recommendations? Thanks!
