Keep these portable folding scissors with you for daily necessities, such as opening packages and envelopes or cutting loose thread from your clothing. The blade is die-cut from Grade 410 stainless steel, a strong, hard metal that is resistant to atmospheric conditions, water and most food acids. The zinc die-cast handles are powder coated to provide a smooth, comfortable surface for your hands.

The needlepoint tip allows you to cut fine surfaces in tight spaces. The scissors would work well as part of a tackle box, Dopp kit, key ring or Every Day Carry.

Use & Care

No special care is required for these small but rugged scissors. The manufacturer has heard from their customers that the scissors are able to cut everything from paper and fabric to tin cans, but such use and abuse is not recommended.

The screw of the scissor blades may be tight when the product first arrives. If you wish, add a bit of oil to loosen it up. 

Production & Design

Ed Sealander innovated these folding scissors in 1968. His son was a medic with the U.S. Armed Forces, dressing soldiers in the field with cumbersome full sized scissors. When he came home, he worked with his father to create this compact, collapsible model.

The company has since changed ownership, but the scissors are still made in the same way, involving over 34 steps and relying on the handiwork of three employees.
