I went through various scissor sketches exploring how to safely incorporate a utility knife. I decided on incorporating a ruler measurement on one side of the blade to easily measure fabric while cutting it with these shears.
I chose to create a pair of scissors centered around cutting fabric. The scissors will have measurements to easily cut fabric along the blade and a utility knife for opening shipment boxes.
The users whole hand can comfortable fit inside the handle grips for extended comfort over long periods of use.
Simple measurements marked on the blades for cutting precisely.
Retractable utility knife for opening boxes quickly with the same tool.
