Any pair of scissors can cut paper, but tough jobs in the warehouse, kitchen or craft area require the extra cutting power offered by heavy-duty scissors and shears. These products take on hard-to-cut materials such as thick cardboard, heavy canvas and denim or meat and bone. Many also have contoured handles that provide a comfortable and secure grip. The selection of scissors and shears at Staples includes heavy-duty models from Westcott, Singer, Fiskars and other brands, so it's simple to find a pair that meets your cutting needs.

Heavy-duty Scissors Deliver Exceptional Cutting Power
Most of these products have blades made from stainless steel or titanium, strong materials that retain their cutting edge. A variety of blade sizes handle small to large cutting tasks, and adjustable cutting mechanisms give users control over blade tension. Electric scissors with locking blades and sheaths help prevent accidents. Some products come apart and are dishwasher safe, which simplifies cleaning. Shears with serrated edges hold slippery materials firmly while cutting.

Cut Materials Comfortably With Heavy-duty Scissors
Cutting thick cardboard, heavy fabric or other tough materials requires considerable force. Most heavy-duty scissors have contoured handles that provide a stable gripping surface. They enhance control so cuts are accurate and also reduce hand fatigue when you're taking on repetitive tasks. Some models have spring-loaded blades that automatically reopen when the cut is complete. Many scissors are available with left or right-handed handles, and some have symmetrical handles that accommodate any user.

Heavy-duty scissors are often an essential tool in the kitchen. Use them for preparing meat and vegetables for roasting. High-quality scissors often have a handy built-in feature between the handles and blades for opening screw-top bottles and jar lids or cracking open nut shells.

How Big Are Heavy-duty Scissors?
Scissors come in a broad range of sizes, from 5 to 10 inches. Short-bladed models are easy to maneuver, making them an excellent option for craft projects or kitchen cutting tasks. When making long, straight cuts, scissors with longer blades are easier to keep on the cutting line. Scissor measurements reflect the tool's overall dimensions, not the length of the blade.

Can You Sharpen Heavy-duty Scissor Blades?
Most of these products have straight edges you can sharpen with a whetstone or electric sharpener. Disassemble your medical scissors so you can sharpen the entire cutting surface, and be sure to sharpen the beveled side of the blade. Pinking or serrated scissors require professional attention, and many hardware stores and sewing centers offer sharpening services.

Which Is Better, Bent or Straight Heavy-duty Scissors?
Both these tools handle different cutting tasks. Bent scissors have blades that are angled to one side, while the blades of straight scissors point straight out of the handle. When cutting fabrics or paper on a table, sewing scissors lie flat on the table's surface, making it easier to make long, straight cuts. Straight scissors offer excellent control over the blade when doing free-hand cutting.

Scissors are versatile tools that take on cutting tasks in the office, kitchen, workshop or sewing room. Find a pair of heavy-duty scissors or scissor sharpeners that fit your hand when you browse the selection of home and office cutting tools available at Staples.
