It's no wonder these...

It's no wonder these are sold out. They are fantastic! Scissors are usually a
pain in the neck to carry along, whether you use a pencil case or prefer to
carry writing supplies in a pocket of your bag. But for a lot of jobs, it's
handy to have them, so you had to kind of suck it up.
These are a great solution, because they just stay out of the way until and
unless you need them. Specifically, they eliminate the three greatest sources of
irritation that you get if you try to take along some scissors: the awkward
shape; the blades that keep nicking and scratching everything (especially since
they ALWAYS fall open); and the finger loops, which keep getting in the way when
you put stuff back in a pencil case. Sure, maybe they aren't the best if you
need to be cutting miles of paper (although they're doing pretty good so far!),
and they are clearly not designed for super thick card or even fabric, but then
that's true for most pairs of scissors you see out there - those are considered
specialized jobs, for which you need other types of tools. But for general paper
jobs they can't be beat.
