Owen & Fred Hot Forged 1060 High Carbon Steel scissors. 7 1/4" long, these scissors are sharp and deserve a place on your desk. They are heat-treated throughout the cross section of the blades and have Rockwell Hardness of 56 on the C scale. These scissors can be resharpened over and over without losing their cutting ability or temper.
They are quite a marvel. Crafted through hot drop forging, this is an ancient process whereby a block of raw steel is heated to a red hot 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. A heavy metal die is dropped from a height directly into the steel. Thirty tons of brute force slams the raw material into the form of scissors, with an edge.
Remember to measure twice and cut once.
