Acme Scissors

Sewing, hobby, kitchen caddies, and many office desks usually contain a pair of all-purpose scissors to meet the demands of everyday use. These scissors are available in various lengths, styles, and colors designed for specific usages. Available at Staples®, Acme scissors are well-known for their innovative design and high-quality cutting blades that are resistant to corrosion. With kid's scissors, snips, and shears available, it's easy to find the right type of scissors for any use.

Compare Types of All-Purpose Scissors
Children's scissors have blunt tips to avoid injury, and many have plastic handles for longevity and durability. Most have pointed ends, so kids cut through paper quickly, and right and left-handed handles for better gripping.

Most models range in length from 4 to 9 inches and have sharp tips for flawless cutting. Scissors with a straight handle ensure the blades line up, so you cut straighter and easier. Four fingers should fit through the bottom grip hole, allowing your thumb to rest on the top opening. Shredding scissors cut paper into small pieces useful for shredding personal documents. Consumers can use them as a kitchen gadget for cutting herbs, creating confetti, or making arts and crafts projects.

Consider the Versatility of All-Purpose Scissors
The hand-operated device cuts open a package of meat, snips off a clothing tag, or serves as a go-to cutter for DIY projects. Users can cut paper for a scrapbooking project, open a box, or keep a pair within easy reach on their desktop. For optimal performance, crafters can set aside one pair of scissors to use exclusively for sewing projects to cut through fabrics, yarn, and floss.

How Do All-Purpose Scissors Differ In Composition?
Carbon-steel scissors are one continuous piece of metal, including the handle, and may have a nickel or chromium-plated coating to ward off rust. Scissors made from stainless steel are lightweight, rustproof, and fit comfortably into a plastic handle. Titanium-bonded scissors stay sharper longer, have a non-stick coating, and are about five times harder than stainless steel.

How Should You Care for All-Purpose Scissors?
Sewing scissors for cutting material and wipe after use with a clean cloth to maintain sharpness. Oiling the joint where the blades meet every few months keeps them working smoothly and wiping down the blades with vinegar or paint thinner to remove dust and grit ensures cleanliness and optimal lifespan. A protective case such as a pouch or box keeps the scissors from coming into contact with other objects that may damage or dull the blades. Consumers should avoid adding moisture to the metal by keeping the case closed.

How Do You Sharpen All-Purpose Scissors?
You can hire a professional to sharpen scissors or do the sharpening yourself. Cut a piece of 150-200 grit sandpaper into strips. With the rough edge facing outward, make sure the paper touches the full length of the blades. You may try cutting through aluminum foil to achieve similar results. Another method is to take apart your scissors and use a wetted sharpening stone to sharpen the inner side of the blades practicing on an old pair first. You could also purchase a manual or electric scissor sharpener .
