You choose, which pair of scissors are going to last longer?
Although the ones with the plastic handles cut a little better, they’re broken and I suspect they’ll break again. The metal pair have been around for decades and are still going strong. In the event they break apart, I might be able to entice our blacksmith friend to help repair them. If you don’t have the tools you need at home, you can take scissors for sharpening at a nearby sewing shop.
Meanwhile, I’m just questioning why the need for plastic handles? The obvious solution is to fix them, so this is simply a reminder to those of you who have plastic-handled scissors that break: Get out the Super Glue and fix ’em! (This is my second pair that’s needed repair this month, oddly.)
