Extremely lightweight with plastic handles and stainless steel blades. The continuous loop handle automatically reopens the scissors when pressure is released. Because they require only a gentle squeeze to operate, they can be used between fingers and thumb or fingers and the palm of the hand. Includes a blade guard for safe storage. The Easi-Grip Scissors can be used either right- or left-handed, and are ideal for young children, those with restricted growth, agility or for cutting threads, wool and doing fine craft work.
