Re: Scissors


Yea Newman!

…and for $[sign in to see URL]. What gives? The best scissor set ever for $[sign in to see URL]? It's almost insulting to our creed!

Re: Scissors


Here is another ebay listing for what I believe to be #ebayphotohosting]The Scissors.

I have sent an email to the seller asking about the actual length, but I'm pretty sure it's 8 1/2.

I'll post more when I know more.

Re: Scissors


Blah.

They said the scissors were approximately 7 1/4 inches.

No go on that I guess.

Re: Scissors


There are precisely two sizes of scissors. I have both for research purposes.

When the smaller size is magnified to the same dimensions as the larger size, it is evident that they are proportioned differently.

I have learned to spot the difference when I see them.

Re: Scissors


I think I’ve found the answer to a lingering mystery. Several of us have noticed that Solingen products are occasionally advertised as “Soungen”.

If you look at this letter opener (for sale right now on eBay), you can see that the name engraved on it is SOLINGEN in all caps. However, if you look at the L and I together as LI, they could easily be mistaken for a capital U by someone who wasn’t familiar with the name. If the L and I are interpreted together as a U, the name becomes SOUNGEN.

Re: Scissors


Looks like the wrong scissors again!
Well, I placed a low bid, so hopefully someone will outbid me.

Re: Scissors


G-man, we need to get back to work on that catalogue. If every new collector were armed with the catalogue we could prevent this sort of thing.

Z, How much did you actually bid no the scissors?

Re: Scissors


You got bailed out on the scissors. I’m sure the other bidder has no idea he did you a favor.

You did the right thing making your initial bid low. That makes it a lot easier to get bailed out if necessary.
