My daughter is working on a school project and we want to know invented the scissors?
The type of scissors that you use for school projects probably have two pivotable blades connected by a rivet or screw just above the handle. This type of scissors, made with bronze or iron, dates back to ancient Rome and China, Japan and Korea.
Large-scale production of this type of scissors began in 1761, when Robert Hinchliffe of Sheffield, England first used cast steel to manufacture them.
