I collect old scissors (among other things) when I can get them at a cheap price. A few days ago, I picked up 6 pair for $2, at a garage sale. They were all in good shape except this pair old barber scissors which had been sharpened until the tips would no longer close by about 3/32 of an inch. I did some surgery on them by cutting the tips back 3/4 of an inch, removed most of the rust. I sharpened them and they cut great. Now they are string scissors. I am familiar with the name, but for those that are not on side toward the camera it says; BRESDUCK on top, dubl (two ducks here) duck in the middle and SOLINGEN GERMANY on the bottom. On the other side it says; HAND FORGED on top, dubl over duck in the middle and RAZER STEEL on the bottom. As old and as worn as they were, after sharpening they cut perfect. -- Tex

Nice work, Tex. Bringing an old tool back to life is always a worthy and rewarding endeavor.
