Long Loop Scissors

These helpful scissors feature a self-opening handle that is easy to grip so it takes minimal effort to cut through paper or even light plastic. Scissors can be used with either the right or left hand, and the plastic blade guard may be used as a stand for one-handed cutting. The stainless steel blades measure 3 inches. These scissors are ideal for people who have difficulty placing their fingers into the finger holes of regular scissors.
