Left handed scissors demo videos
Truly left handed scissors have the blades reversed as well as the handle mouldings and can be hard to find. The blade positions on left handed scissors mean you can see the cutting line without having to twist the scissors to look over the top and you can make a clean cut without tearing using them in your left hand. The natural motion of the left hand will push the blades of the scissors together to cut well without having to squeeze and twist the handles together so hard you bruise your thumb knuckle. Crucially, you can see the cutting line between the blades so you do not have to twist them to look over the top while you cut.
