As I mentioned in my last post I picked up a few keychain items, during my trip to the USA. This is the first of three; a pair of zipper scissors. Stayed tuned for the other items later.
I bought these scissors at the MoMA (museum of modern art) store in New York City for $10USD. Initially, I thought these scissor seemed pretty cool, however after buying them and opening it up, I find them functionally hard to use. When I squeeze the handles together, the scissor tends to get stuck, rather than springing back out. I'm not sure if they are all like this, or if I got a dud. On the upside, they are very light-weight and a novelty to have.
The scissor blades extends and retracts via the button on the side. When retracted, these scissors look like a large zipper pull. On the packaging it suggest that you attach it to a keyring or jacket/bag zippers. In fact, it also claims these scissors are so 'cool' they can be worn as a necklace!
Here a some rough measurements: 43(L) x 16(W) x 10(H) mm
