Did you see all those instruct-ables which require sandpaper or some pottery? Me personally don't have those laying around alle the time (e.g. at work, at school)

Do you still want a quick and dirty way to sharpen you knife.

That's were scissors enter the scene.

During this proces; the scissors stay just as sharp as before.

Step 1: Finding good scissors

Good scissors have at the back an area with narrowing metal.

See that you can modify this angle to the size of your liking.

If you would like to chop wood with you knife you will probably need an angle of about 45°. If your going to cut wood, try to get your angle as small as possible...

<p>This is not sexy this is ferocious. A killer's knife.</p>
<p>READ THIS. I USED THIS METHOD TO SHARPEN MY KNIFE. I WORKS BUT IT IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS I WAS HOLDING THEM AND THE KNIFE WILL DROP DOWN AND CUT YOUR HAND. I SEVERED MY TENDON ON MY LEFT HAND POINTER FINGER. IT WORKS BUT IS A VERY DANGEROUS WAY TO SHARPEN IT. I NEEDED TO GET 5 STITCHES AND WILL NEED TO HAVE SURGERY TO REPAIR MY TENDON. </p>
<p>Good boy listen to the elder. You didn't, thats why this happened. And after this don't play with knives. Buy a toy knife it would be more safer. Got it ?</p>
<p>creative idea lol</p>
This is great....for ruining your knife.
You might not have access to what I have defined as &quot;good scissors&quot;. Did you put your knife in the &quot;spleet&quot;?
You do realize that scraping metal against another piece of metal at a 90 angle, does not count as sharpening. <br> <br>It's the same reason AccuSharp is garbage. <br> <br>
you'd really screw up your edge.
If you adjust you scissors, you might actually be able to screw it <strong>down </strong>from 70 degrees to 45 degrees.<br> <br> But that depend on definition of up.<br> <br> Please also note I mentioned this is not about screwing.
yup
thats something i could try. but personaly i prefer the whetstone not because its easier or better but because it feels more um genuine..... u know if it will work on hand forged blades?
wow this works very well, so well that wen i was sharpening it, it slippend and cut my finger XD
LOL&nbsp; note this is not sex xD<br />
It's a good thing he clarified that, I was worried for a minute.<br />
Why do you have a knife with you at work and school?
I've got my scissors over there<br />
You should *always* have a small knife on you.<br /> They're not exactly useful weapons for the untrained, but they're useful for everything from opening parcels, to cutting jammed safety straps in a workplace accident.<br /> <br />
This will only work on a crappy knife that is softer than the pair of scissors.
Scissors in general are quite 'hard'.
<sup>oh so this IS about sex...</sup><br/>
This is ridiculous...
but "Hey this actually works!" , " this does make sense, actually." and "this is sexy"
I really don't think that it does. But I suppose I should give it a shot sometime.
I guess it is kinda 'like' sex. You just have to give it a try.
LOL!
this works like a charm I sharpened my hatchet with it 5*and faved
christ on a cracker!!!!!! lol no im not a god nut but i heard my friend say it and it was funny. Hey this actually works!
dumbest instructable ever it was a waste of my time
Have you read "how to drink water from a cup"?
lol nevermind that instructable was the dumbest but this one is still preaty dumb
You should read the one about not being a useless tool. If it was dumb to you, but to all the other posters here it was useful, what possessed you to use your time to post? Was it useful for us to know that it was useless to you? We don't care. And this instructable is useful- I'm a knife expert/maker and even if this is not the BEST method for knife sharpening, IT WORKS. You should read the instructable about using time wisely, or just shutting up when you don't have anything constructive to say.
Oh, btw, are you sure it's not about sex?
I read that instructable. It's great!
I think this just might be about sex...
no
lol dat was een grapje man... niet happen lol dude. it was a joke from him. dont bite so easy
I didn't sharp my teeth for biting
what a sexy knife..........this must be about sex..............
I give up
this way of shapering reminds me of samurai sharp that tool they have on tv cheaper though very nice
ugly knife. whered u get it
dude thats a nice knife
@ Turkey, for a couple of bucks
this does make sense, actually. These would work if you had some tungsten-carbide scissors, and then u could change the angle.
it actually works
Dit is voor jou mss een goeie manier, maar ik zou m'n CRKT nooit met een schaar slijpen. Redenen: 1. Je schaar zal niet lang meegaan 2. De hoek van je snede zal niet kloppen, tenzij je toevallig een goeie schaar vindt... This might work for you, but I wouldn't sharp my CRKT with scissors for a couple of reasons: 1. Your scissors will be f***ed up 2. The angle of your edge won't match with the scissors, except if your extremely lucky...
For the sharpening only the back of the scissors is used. No real damage will therefor occur.
nice idea its the same principal with a carbide sharpener so thums up to u for being a cheapo smarty pants!
Sexy!
