2. Shears: For cutting fabric, shears are more satisfactory than scissors. Shears differ from scissors, in which shears have one small ring handle for the thumb and a large ring handle for the second, third and fourth fingers. They also have longer blades (8 to 12). It is better to select bent handled shears made of high quality steel and having blades joined with a bolt or screw rather than a rivet. Take good care of your shears and use them only for cutting fabric. Do not drop them or leave them out to rust or cut any other item.
