Spiral Scissors

These diminutive nail and cuticle scissors look pretty conventional at first glance. But then you notice the unusual split all the way down its length — a twirling, twisting break, that when opened, reveal the the full curvature of the form. Made in Switzerland by Rubis and finished exquisitely in satin-finished stainless steel, these scissors are a marvel of finely crafted detail — a design that's directly derived from its function. I really appreciate the extra effort someone went through to make something special out of an ordinary a pair of scissors.
