How many pairs of scissors do you own? I'm a firm believer that you can never have too much cutting power. On any given day I own between 2-8 pairs. (The fluctuation is a direct result of my lazy unwillingness to ever put anything back where it goes. ) Perhaps I would take better care of my scissor collection if it was made up of these quirky yet cute bird cutters from Neiman Marcus. The handles are magnetic, so I don't think I could lose them even if I tried.
