Cut Right To It
This all-purpose scissors is the favorite of everyone at A.S.&S.: Pat uses his to cut and strip wire. C.J. uses his to slit the tape on packages. Mary Ann uses hers to open bags of pretzels. It's 6-1/4" long overall, with a very sharp 2" stainless steel blade and large, comfortable handles. It would sell for $9.95 retail if it was new, but it was used for one day to cut cloth in the assembly plant of a major car company, then discarded. Quality control is a wonderful thing.

Manual Document Shredder
Tired of being a slave to the electric company, or just worried about shredding documents if the FBI cuts the power to your office? Try our foolproof, non-electronic document shredder, a very scissors-like hand-held innovation. OK, a pair of scissors with (5) sets of parallel blades. Destroys credit cards in a couple of passes, takes care of full sheets with a few more. Craft/classroom/party-planner bonus: makes confetti like a champ, and produces fringe just as easily.
$6.95 EACH
Portable Scalpel
For traveling surgeons? Veterinarians? Dunno, but this is a small, retractable utility knife with a pointed, #11 scalpel blade inside. Measures 4-1/4" long with a plastic handle when retracted. Looks to us to be great for crafting, hobbying and pretty much any fine cutting. Made in England, and they ain’t talking.
$3.95 PKG (3)
More Utile Utility Knife
This 6” long utility knife accepts standard blades and has a blade lock so you don’t stab yourself in the pocket by mistake. Rubberized on the thumb side (if you’re using it right-handed), and we’ll select one in red, yellow or blue to go with your toolbox. Comes with one blade, too, to get you cutting right away.
$3.50 EACH
