Straight and Narrow
Lasers are everywhere these days. Those of us who can remember when lasers were just a step away from science fiction ray guns never imagined a day when you could buy one mounted on the handle of a pair of scissors. Now that day is here.
Do you leave a jagged edge on expensive wrapping paper every time you have to cut off a new piece? Do you only ever buy designs with repeating patterns that will guide your cutting hand? Straight Edge Laser-Guided Scissors are made for you.
The laser guide runs on two LR44 batteries (included).
Please note that these are NOT left-handed scissors.
Non-US customers: The USPS prohibits international shipping of lithium batteries unless they are installed in products. To comply with that requirement, we have to install the batteries that normally ship with this product. Customers outside of the US, including US military addresses (APO, FPO, DPO), will receive opened packages. Furthermore, some countries will not accept any packages containing batteries; customers in Germany and Italy will receive opened packages with no batteries.

The first scissors appeared as much as 4,000 years ago in Mesopotamia. Known as "spring scissors", this ancient tool consisted of two bronze blades connected by a thin, flexible strip that kept them aligned. The user squeezed them together and the spring pulled them apart after each cut. The Romans came up with modern-style pivoted scissors around 100 AD and they were a big hit in Asia, but they didn't catch on in Europe until the 16th century. In the 19th century hand-forged scissors with elaborately artistic handles were all the rage.
Although inventors came up with some variations for special purposes (like children's safety scissors, pinking shears, kitchen scissors, left-handed scissors, etc.), your basic everyday scissors have hardly changed since mass production forced a simple, standard design -- until now.
