Folding scissors to take travelling.
From Slip-N-Snip Scissors, Inc., in Oregon, who are said to have invented this type of scissors. A simple but very effective mechanism enables the scissors to be folded, so that they can be put in a handbag or pocket without risk . The folding and unfolding process is a little stiff, but this is a safety measure to make sure that the scissors will not easily unfold by themselves in a bag or pocket. It can be remedied with a drop of oil. Thanks to their narrow and fine blades, the scissors are equally suitable for precise cutting, such as unpicking seams or work with paper and handicrafts, and for less fine jobs, such as chopping herbs, etc. In view of their small size, they will fit in a first-aid box for the home or for travelling or in a toilet bag, briefcase, sports bag or even a gardening apron.
