Vintage EDC Scissors

This is an old pair of EDC scissors my mother asked me to repair. They were rusted up and the spring was broken off near the handle.

  • cleaned off the rust with fine sandpaper
  • drilled out the rusted in broken spring
  • added Victorinox small spring spare
  • adjusted the fit of the lid
  • cemented the scissors into the lid with Sugru

The case is copper, scissors steel, no makers marks. I have no idea about the age of the scissors, I just know they were given to my mother by my grandmother who passed away when I was three. Possibly from the 1930's from cursory image searches.

EDC means Everyday Carry if you're not familiar with the term.
