Blades are the product of dedication, discipline, perseverance. Veteran craftsman have dedicated themselves to the art of blade making, the samurai sword is a living example of it. It is clear that it is not simply a livelihood but an art. For them it is an art of living. It is said that the 1st pair of scissors came into being around 4000 years ago in Mesopotamia. These kinds of scissors were basically spring scissors. As opposed to the pivoted scissors that we are used to in modern times, these scissors are basically two bronze blades which are connected with flexible handle. The predecessors of the modern day scissors were invented by Romans around 100 AD, which were basically pivoted scissors.

Both shears and scissors come under the category of shearing tools. Scissors and shears are quite similar indeed. Scissors normally would have a blade length of less than 6 inches. They have equal sized finger hole, which accommodates the thumb and one single finger.  On the other hand, the blades of shears are usually longer than six inches. They have a small finger hole as well as a larger finger hole. These accommodate the thumb and three or four fingers.
