I purchased these multi-blade scissors with the intention of using them to "shred" documents, as that is what they were sold for. I quickly found out that they are basically useless for shredding more than one page or sheet at a time. I went out and bought an electric document shredder instead. I now use these in the kitchen to cut up herbs. It cuts up the herbs without bruising them like "chopping" does, and it's a lot quieter.

I've got 2 pairs of Case and a set of Remingtons I'll have to take pictures of when I get back to Alexandria. Also scored a bunch of Case scissor paper wraps from Knifeaholic along with some Case pumpkin boxes.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

Thanks for the info Bob.There were several different sizes of these at the estate sale where I got them and the previous owner worked copper so that would explain them.

Back when I worked for Ma Bell, the first time I received a pair of the items shown below, I referred to them as SCISSORS. One of the "old timers" heard me and you'd have thought I insulted his mother. He took me outside and "explained" to me that they weren't called SCISSORS, they were called SNIPS. I never made that mistake again. In fact, when I became an "old timer", I did the same thing to the new guys. Anyway, over the course of my career, I managed to procure a few pairs of SNIPS. On the job, I used them mainly when I was working in the phone cables. At home, I use them to cut through whatever a pair of SCISSORS can't cut through. I can't do it now, but I used to be able to cut a quarter in half (25 cents). I can still cut through a penny and a dime with little effort. These SNIPS are sharp and maintain their edge a long time (the special sharpener & instructions are the last 5 pictures). The SNIPS, from top to bottom as they are marked:

1. Unmarked
2. BELL SYSTEM "C" U.S.A.
3. JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.
4. JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.
5. A4 JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.
6. A4 JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.
7. B1 JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.
8. C2 JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.
9. E1 JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.
10. F4 JAMESON STYLE C U.S.A.

Remembered to take some pictures of the 2 Case and 1 Remington scissors that I have, probably from an auction for cheap. Also, I have some scissor sleeves that I bought from Knifeaholic along with some assorted Case pumpkin boxes. I know nothing about scissors, collecting or prices, but these seem like they're quality scissors.
