Great idea :D

(Or you could buy new scissors :-/)

NO!!! I love these scissors and will fix them. They were given to me in a funny kind of way so I just put them at the back of the draw when they broke. Now since I love wood work I can fix them. They will be reused and passed down to my kids. My leather scissors are the best I own and the broke ones are the 2nd to best. Can't part from something so good. A new pair of scissors would not be as good or loved as much as these.

If you fix them, please post a photo

me? No I won't I don't have scissors that need fixing but I commented because this looked good :D

lol, now you need to wait for the other side to break so you have super-loved-super-wooden scissors xD

Say YES to taking responsibility for our goods and repairing them rather
than tossing them away. I appreciate this. It's not only preventing needless waste, but also giving you a new relationship with
those scissors (almost heirloom qualified now) and honing your skills
at the same time.

Great work - I'm tucking this one away for a later date!

Had to laugh at your HEIRLOOM qualified. My children and grandchildren laugh at a lot of my heirloom qualified items but guess what, some day these items will be passed down to them. And a lot of them have came from my parents and my grandparents. If it is good keep it going.
