I am looking for something flashy as I produce some scissors for the cut and restored rope trick. I have seen some scissors that as you open them they are twirled and it looks very flashy. I can't tell but it looks like they are like a leatherman knife where they are folded and have to be unfolded to open them up. Does anyone know the name of these scissors and where to get them at??

I have never seen anyone use scissors like you describe. I found a fine pair of scissors that came in a handy plastic case at JOANN fabrics.

Pretty sure he's seen a butterfly knife being used to cut the rope and mistaken them for a pair of fancy scissors.

It can make for a flashy bit in a rope routine but it's worth baring in mind that if you travel anywhere that has you going through xray security it's going to cause you problems.

I had the tips of my scissors ground down because I hand them to the person helping me, and the sight of blood always spoils the show.
