What Are Sewing Snips?
Thread snips are open by default. To make the cut, the user squeezes the blades together. There’s no action required to reopen the blades, as an internal spring resets the blades to open once you stop squeezing. The squeezing motion takes place between the thumb and the forefinger, leaving the rest of the fingers out of the equation.
While this may not seem like a large difference, self-opening scissors require different and fewer muscles to operate them, which makes them ideal for repetitive cutting and those who have challenges with their dexterity.
Who Will Benefit From This Design?
Another group of people that benefits from snips for sewing is anyone who has dexterity challenges. This includes children, who are just developing their fine motor skills. It also includes anyone whose mobility is reduced through an acute injury or a chronic condition, such as arthritis, that makes the double action of opening and closing standard scissors too difficult or painful.
What Can I Cut With the 10595 Scissors?
While this tool could certainly handle cutting paper or thin card stock, the blades, at less than one inch long, are quite short, which makes them impractical for longer cuts.
How Are Slice Thread Snips Safer?
Traditional ceramic blades, although they are much harder than steel, are made with the same dangerously sharp grind. This puts the user at risk, especially when dexterity and fine motor control are at issue.
Slice developed a proprietary method of grinding blade edges that shortens the initial cutting zone and disperses the cutting force over materials such as skin. Our blades, including all our ceramic scissors, start at an effective and safe sharpness, and stay there up to 11 times longer than metal blades.
