A Quintuple of Scissors

Found these this past Thursday on the US 25W Yard Sale.
I don't think you can call these a "pair" of scissors?
I had never seen anything like them.
Thought maybe they cut fabric into fringe, because the blades were very sharp.
1$ was worth the thrill to try them out, & definitely a conversation piece.
So I just now tried them out.
The verdict:
They cut paper with ease.
Do you know what these scissors were meant to do?
Update: With the help of blogging and fb friends, I've learned these shears belong in the kitchen to cut up herbs. Love learning something every day.
Right now, Amazon has a good shot of these shears. In some places they are called "Herb Shears." 

Can be purchased on Amazon @


  1. yes i now it.
    You can use it in the kitchen because this is a persil trimmer. Do the persil in a cup and start clipping with the siccor. after a minute you wil have fine clipped persil what you can use in your meals our soup. In the Netherlands we do this above boiled carrrots.
    Good luck with it.

    1. Thank-you for the comment. I think you are saying it chops parsley or another herb? That would definitely work.

  2. Hi there, I'd like to invite you to link some of your wonderful barn photos at
