Scissors are cutting implements made up of two metal blades that are pivotally positioned such that, when the handles are closed, the sharpened edges glide against one another. Depending on the task, scissors come in a variety of sizes and shapes and are used to cut a variety of materials, including paper, fabric, and hair. They can be found in many households, offices, and workshops, as well as in various professional fields such as sewing, tailoring, crafting, hairdressing, and surgery.
