    I think you've made left handed scissors. If you mount then the other way around , with the top part of the scissors pushing down they'll cut a bit better.

    You need to curve the blades of the scissor a little to make sure that the cutting edge is close to each other. If you look closely on a good scissor you will notice that they do curve the blades too

    A few folks have mentioned the curvature of scissor blades, but also a large aspect of how they work is the left/right pressure of your fingers, which is why there are lefty and righty scissors, even though they basically look the same. The natural way your hand closes the grips is what pushes the blades together.
    Maybe you can sell or donate these to a salon as a decoration!

    The running-with-scissors outdoor scenes at the park reminded me of the classic "Benny Hill Show". His British show had a lot of scenes with people running, filmed with a sped up camera. There wasn't any dialog but a fast paced theme melody played throughout.

    the reason you cant run with scissors and you "Can run with knifes" is that the shape of the scissors blade is not flat making it harder to sow closed, that is why knifes that are 3 sided are illegal to use in war.

    Simone: I stumbled across your channel last night when the "Truckla" project caught my eye. I love you! Your enthusiasm, unique view, humor, life experiences and thought process is precious to me.
    I can contribute something for you on the scissors project. When you use a pair of scissors, your thumb puts an opposing lateral force on the finger actuated blade thereby increasing the shear force at the cutting edge. With the scissors that you made it is too physically difficult to apply the needed force to have consistent clean cuts. When this happens with shears in larger scale the manufacturers actually have a slight curve to their blades so the blades themselves supply the lateral force to the cut.
    This is something most people never notice but is definitely essential for the best cut.
    Keep on being you as you are awesome.

    Scissors cut using shear force not sharpness. The blade leading edges *must* remain flush to each other throught the movement. The shear edge of the blade must be ground to a clean line and an angle less than 90 deg.
