Acme United EasyGrip Scissors

Acme United retained the industrial designers at MAKERS to help them break into the mechanically-assisted scissors market. The EasyGrip scissors have a torsion spring incorporated into the blade pivot, which opens the blades with no effort from the user, making them especially handy for people who lack the hand strength to use standard scissors. MAKERS navigated a minefield of competing scissors patents to develop a design that is comfortable and stands out as visually exciting on the crowded walls of office supply stores.
