There is no doubt that folding scissors have acquired something of a bad reputation in recent years being found amidst the shoddy offerings of airport lounges or upmarket Christmas crackers. These though are the exception, being made by the master scissor makers of Dovo Stahlwaren, in Solingen, Germany. The blades themselves carry the putter-togetherer's marks inside the pivot, showing they have been properly paired before finishing, the fold is sprung, and the action satisfyingly crisp and precise. With a leather pouch. Size folded approximately 50mm x 20mm x 5mm, extended 96mm x 53mm x 5mm and with about 24mm usable blades.
