When you discard your old mail, your name, address, and other personal information in it could be stolen. Sun-Star's Shredder Scissors eliminates this worry. As you cut through the personal information on your old papers, the zigzag blades mince it into 2.2 x 3 mm bits. Because the shredding width is about 2.2 mm, you can shred just the lines that contain sensitive information and leave the rest of the papers intact. Some recycling services may not accept shredded paper, so limiting the area of shredding leaves more of your paper in recyclable condition. The scissors can also shred credit cards, and the large sharp claw-like tooth works for thicker papers, CDs, and other media.
