RightShears: The Angled, Natural-Grip Scissors

rightshears

Last year we wrote about RightShears. These were wacky-looking scissors with a sharp 90 degree bend right in the blades, which made it possible to hold with a a more natural grip than standard scissors. If you look at the picture above, you’ll understand immediately why RightShears would be perfect for anyone with arthritis, or with a desire to cut things in a more natural and ergonomic fashion. Well, we’re writing about them again because you can finally buy some. Their Kickstarter failed last time, but we’re happy to report they’ve relaunched and it is now fully-funded, with 56 days to go. You can get yourself a pair with a $14 pledge, with an estimated shipping date of February 2017.

RightShears Solves A Problem We Didn’t Know We Had

Look, scissors have been around for a while, and for the most part, they do their job just fine. But just fine didn’t seem to be enough for ReExcite, a startup whose website was clearly designed in 1998. They’re making a set of scissors called RightShear and while they do exactly the same thing regular scissors do, they do so at a 90 angle. This way you can keep your hand out of the way of whatever it is you’re cutting. It may seem a little useless for small tasks, but if you’re cutting large pieces of cardboard that better lay flat for some reason, RighShear will get the job done much more easily. As a matter of fact, if you look at videos of the item in action you’ll see the ergonomics are actually quite improved. They’ll be launching a crowdfunding campaign soon at an undisclosed pricepoint, and you can sign up on their page to be notified of when this happens.
