Modern scissors have been greatly improved with ancient scissors from the shape, material, process, quality, variety, function and so on. But from the existing remains, the scissors used by the Song Dynasty have been roughly similar to the modern ones. There is a museum of ancient tombs in Luoyang from the Northern Song Dynasty Xining five years (AD 1072) unearthed in the tombs of the scissors, scissors have very similar appearance and modern. This shows that the pattern of scissors in China has been used at least for more than 1000 years.
There are many kinds of scissors. They are mainly made of alloy steel. They are usually made up of two parts -- the thumb operated movable blade, the stationary blade controlled by the ring finger, and the two part has a screw fixed.
