The Household Scissors, model SW52003 and SW5200, are self-opening scissors designed for use by individuals with arthritis, fine motor disabilities, and grasping disabilities. Usable with the right or left hand, these lightweight scissors have precision-made stainless steel blades that can be adjusted to cut in any position with a simple squeezing motion using a whole hand grip. The spring band connecting the handles opens the blades when pressure is released. After prolonged or intensive use, the band can be reversed to restore full spring pressure. Model SW5200 has the same features but has larger handles. Both models are intended for general kitchen and household tasks.
