Cutting through time: A brief history of scissors
Found in nearly every home in America, and most around the world as well, one ingenious hand-operated tool has helped keep us clothed, fed, employed, entertained, well-groomed and even assisted with lawn, agricultural and medical care for thousands of years. What one tool? Scissors!
Today, fine scissor makers continue to use polished steel to create scissors capable of making clean cuts on the finest silks, as well as the heaviest leathers. Even as technology takes over many of the tasks in our lives, nearly every home still contains a pair, or more, of quality scissors for sewing, crafting, and general cutting needs.
