Claes Oldenburg: Scissors as Monument, from National Collection of Fine Arts 1967.

Fishs Eddy, Tailor Scissors $22.95.

I love a good pair of scissors. I have a few pairs that are so wonderful they have followed me throughout my life.

Once Martha Stewart had a whole section of her magazine devoted to scissors throughout history. It was an epic Martha moment- but let's be honest, all Martha moments are epic. 

In the art room at the school I teach we have various scissors and one pair of all metal scissors. That old pair of scissors is beast. It has long blades and cuts through everything. They are beautiful in their banality and their dependability.
