After lengthy anthropometric research and observation, we found there are basically three ways of using a pair of scissors. Based on these information we proposed a solution for a scissors suited to both right and left-handed users, improving the user-product interface. This solution also optimized the manufacturing process. Wagering on innovation, we decided to mix materials that provide better tactile features, providing comfort and safe use to facilitate the use of the scissors.
