My father-in-law and I were cutting wire mesh to cover a basement vent on his home in order to keep the critters out...a common problem here in California. It was a two person job: he held the wire mesh apart while I hacked at it with a regular pair of snips...and the wire mesh in return hacked away at our hands! I kept thinking that I had to get my hands out of the way of that wire mesh somehow, and when the solution occurred to me, I knew it was something I had to build! So I drew some sketches and cut out some cardboard and made the first (rough) prototype of what would become Right Shears!
I started out creating Right Shears with the intention of building a tool that I wanted to use, in order to solve a problem that I was facing, and I ended up with a radical pair of scissors that is useful beyond my wildest dreams! Not only do they solve my original problem, but also many other problems such as the tricky ergonomics of conventional scissors. I believe that Right Shears are useful for every single person, but I am unbelievably excited by the prospect of helping people suffering from various conditions affecting hand, wrist, arm and shoulder movement! Please order your pair of Right Shears today and join the scissor revolution!
