Children who are physically challenged by the operation of standard scissors will find Spring-Action scissors more comfortable and easier to use! The plastic spring in the handle can be raised or lowered to allow the scissor to operate like a regular scissor or to spring the scissor open after a cutting motion. Blades are hardened, tempered stainless steel for a long lasting cutting edge. Cuts through paper, cardboard, fabric and many other materials. 5" in length, blunt tips. Lifetime limited manufacturer's warranty. Colors vary.
