These Parveen hand forged 'barber' scissors beat the shit out of the blunted safety scissors we used to have for making collages, back in the first grade. The handles are sand-cast brass and the blades are hand-ground. I would go into greater deal about those specifications if I wasn't so caught up thinking about how much of my life has been spent making collages. What are you supposed to learn from cutting up a bunch of leftover magazines? What lesson does that teach? All I ever got from making collages were papercuts and a lifetime appreciation of scented markers. Looking back, it seems pretty obvious that at least 50% of school is a desperate attempt to distract little kids from the fact that they're being warehoused against their will. "Don't think about the valuable daylight hours you're wasting in this desk-filled prison, Timmy. Just keep slicing up that back issue of Marie Claire". Anyway, if you do get these wonderful scissors, please find a better use for them than making collages. But out of curiosity, what was your favorite flavor of Mr. Sketch? Mine was dark green.
