    I bought these in the sewing section of Walmart in Dyersburg TN about 3 years ago. My nephew said he would like to have one, but I haven't seen any in Walmart since and I don't know what to google on Amazon to find them.

    Those are factory thread snips, used in the garment industry Sunshine.

    Take care not to cut yourself on the razor-sharp blades, though. :)

    Thanks. I just sent you a PM to look. Didn't know you already had. They are useful. My nephew who has done several of my projects thought he would like to have a set, but I didn't know what they were called. And I haven't seen any at wally world since.

    Some factory lord back when noticed it took a long time for his helpers to pick up a pair of scissors and cut each garment apart as she went, to ready her stack for the seamstress at the next table. So the snips fit in one hand to enable the user to manipulate fabric going under a 5,000 spm factory Pfaff to speed through the day. It likely enabled the individual worker to put out 80% more stuff than those stuck with scissors pickup, snip, lay down, sew, pick up scissors, snip, lay scissors down, etc.
