Differences Between Scissors & Shears

September 16, 2008 by  

Many people feel that the terms scissors and shears are actually interchangeable terms but really there is a few slight differences between the two so they are not exactly the same type of cutting implement. Scissors are usually less than six inches in length, have two small matching handles, and are usually used for lighter cutting jobs due to their smaller sizes. While shears are usually larger than six inches and have non-matching handles with the exception of hairdressing shears, which have identical handles. Whether you are shopping for scissors or shears for trimming hair it is essential that you have a pair that feels good in your hand.
