Thank you Sos24 for hosting and to all who participated.
Seems every time I join a challenge the month goes by so quickly. 
I realize I don't use scissors as often as I thought I did, but when I need them, the SAK scissors are capable of the tasks I need them for.
Thanks for participating.  The SAK scissors are definitely capable and so easy to just have available.

The posts were pretty enjoyable for this spectator, too.
Much the same here. These days I only go for scissors when I need to cut precisely or when use of a blade could have disastrous results.

This was a great challenge, and a neat idea from Sos24!

Thanks for following and commenting.

In some ways I think I am the opposite type of scissor user - I even use the scissors when a knife could work.  If I feel they’ll do a better job, I use them.   But in some ways, I probably should lean more on the knife because it is user to clean, sharpen and even repair if damaged then the scissors.

I fell way behind! Life has been hectic recently with trying to get a replacement car, but it ended in success!

Day 26

This is the Classic that I tend to my nails with, it was given to my father when the factory he worked at was taken over, he just threw it in my direction with no interest. It shows the abuse and neglect that only a 12 year old could give it, but it's still going strong  :salute:

Day 27

If I had to choose only one scissor size I think it'd have to be the 58mm, though if I have more experience with them this may change to the 74mm. The 91mm are just too large IMO for some grooming tasks and I'm not a fan of the serrated Wenger scissors.

I finally found this thread! I've been looking for it for ages. :like:
This looks like fun. I love my SAK scissors.

Question:
Did you get a badge for this? I do not see one. :think:
Why is this?  :(

Here's a badge, if that's alright.

We did not.  I figured with the small amount of people we wouldn’t qualify, so I did not request.  But thank you so much for providing.  Your awesome.
