When I say that I've tried and tested various types of scissors here is a photo of some of them so you know that I'm not just talking through my hat.
Why I've acquired so many is because I find them fun and interesting. I know, I know, I should get a life ha ha.
I might add that all to the left of the white handle ones in the bottom row are counting the daisy which is for use on an aircraft.

I know what you mean. I had a collection also, but not quite that big. I give a lot on mine away.

Mary, I had no idea! I feel so inadequate!

Djhmum that's a good idea to give them away. We have a charity shop nearby so they'll be glad to get some of them.

Tex :-)) now you know my naughty little secret!

I'm scandalized, Mary! :) You of all people and such vicious tools!

Actually, I feel ashamed I have the one and only pair for 10 years now. I ordered a lovely one last year or so and gave it to DD. She admired it. Just as well, I only need one pair and love it. I will order those Fiskars snippers though as soon as I have a chance. I've been busy in the yard. DEspite treatments my pansies are covered with aphids. I want to rip them out but they look so pretty. Then there is my GD and DH and, and, and. I have to get ready to get the car inspected and go grocery shopping. I still haven't gone out for bread. The freezer is full of rolls and baguettes. I'm on my last roll of paper towels and that is a critical item in my household along with TP. My son asked once if I was expecting King Kong because he discovered at least 60 rolls in the closet. One never knows!

Ha ha Tex...before the days of computers I used to "collect" pens, now it seems it's scissors but I am packing them in for my charity shop.

Why, Mary? Turn them into decorative items.

Good idea Tex. I can hang them with ribbons from twigs 😂

Having three kid and I use the term loosely because they are 20, 19, and 17 respectively, my scissors always seem to be lost. I have scissors I use just to cut fabric and I had to mark them with masking tape - FABRIC ONLY. It has gotten better through the years but they are always jacking my sharpies too! lol
