These nifty little scissors will never poke you when you're rummaging around in your project bag! The blade is safely contained with a plastic case, giving them a streamlined, pen look. The blades are about 3cm long and have a spring that gives them a snip action. They naturally spring open and require a gentle pressure to bring them together. A great option for people who experience hand fatigure or have an awful lot of cutting to do. The total length is about 12cm, and just over 1cm wide. The case has a secure clip action, like a pen lid, so it won't go wandering off on its own.
