Carbon Steel Electrician's Scissors
Versatile household helper. The telephone scissors
The telephone scissors - Schwarte has had them in its product line since the 1920s - have proven themselves over the decades as a versatile household helper, also and especially for cutting textiles. It is forged from C-60 steel, which has a higher carbon content than normal cast steel, allowing it to be hardened to 57-58 HRC (normal is 52-54 HRC) and ground to a sharper finish. The hardness needed for cutting copper cables gives the scissors lasting sharpness in home use. The eyes are shaped to optimally fit the thumb and middle finger during use. Other details of the scissors can be explained by their original purpose: The notch on the lower bevel prevents the telephone cable from slipping off, the lateral file cut on both scissor blades serves to strip the cable - which was insulated with dip varnish at the time.
Scissors from Solingen. From Carl Schwarte
Founded in 1910, the family-owned company Carl Schwarte - one of the few genuine professional knife and scissors manufacturers in Solingen - has been supplying customers mainly from industrial and craft businesses in a wide variety of sectors for 100 years. To this day, all work steps are done by hand before the shears are tested and stamped with the company name. These are inexpensive, sturdy and extremely serviceable, they are forged from carbon steel and therefore not rustproof. They come oiled and should also be maintained with oil occasionally. Over time, the scissors lose their manufacturing-related luster, but gain a beautiful patina in use.
