Default Handmade scissors

I have to admit I have a scissors fetish. I love old scissors. My son sent me a link - he loves it from a metal working point of view and he knows about my thing for old scissors... I hope you all love watching it it as much as I did: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-28581597

What a lovely story. It is a lost art. The video after the scissors is a great one also. Old weaving machines (Looms). What magic!!! Thanks for sharing.
peace
