In the old days, people in a bank needed to cut a lot of paper, so they used special long, thin scissors to make quick work of the job. Hence the name "Banker's Scissors."

Today, the long size of these tough, old-fashioned cutters can be really handy in the shop, for cutting paper patterns, or for tasks around the house.

We found a pile of these (at an outrageously reasonable price) at an old, family-owned Taiwanese scissor maker, so we bought them. Get a set of three at a tremendous savings-one each for the shop, office, and kitchen. Mind you, these are a bit crude, but the price is incredible so you wont hesitate to throw a pair in the tool box or the desk drawer just in case. The overall length of the scissors is 10"; the cutting edges are about 5". Made in Taiwan.

Shown with the Thread Snips.

    Larry Paxton, 12/29/2013 A great all purpose" pair of scissors. I just ordered a new pair as my old ones "walked off"! An unbelievable value. No home should be without them."
  • An Average Cut!

    David Self, 1/1/2013 Had hoped the quality would have been better but the price was right. Cuts paper fine but had hoped to use the scissors for cutting fiberglass insulation. Did not work out for that.
  • Nice Gift

    Becca, 4/15/2009 I ordered these for my son in Pennsylvania for Christmas and he really liked them. They are unusual,come in handy for larger projects, and make a really nice gift. I am ordering 3 more pairs, 2 for gifts and one for myself.
