Scissors are an often over-looked, yet ubiquitous and much needed tool. Their function is simple yet unique; nothing replaces a good pair of scissors for those jobs that, well, only a pair of scissors can do. Any well-equipped kitchen, bathroom, office or workshop will hold a pair somewhere in a drawer or cupboard, yet they often don’t spring to mind until their use is required. When they are required of course, it’s good to know they will do their job efficiently, elegantly and simply, leaving you to forget about them until the next time you need them again. However, their simplicity in use belies the complex processes involved in their manufacture.
