The Original Folding Scissors, made in the USA. These easy to open scissors will fit anywhere: your pocket, purse, sewing kit, embroidery box, tackle box, first aid kit and even in your space suit! How these scissors ended up on a Space Shuttle mission is an interesting tale. A NASA official was searching for dependable equipment for a Space Shuttle mission and mentioned to her mother that she needed good scissors. Her mother happened to have a pair of Slip-N-Snip scissors in her sewing kit and told her daughter about them. They are made from highly durable stainless steel. Slip-N-Snip folding scissors have a fine point making them ideal as travelling sewing or embroidery scissors. The blades fold away and slip between the handles for complete safety.
