The Question:

My daughter is working on a school project and we want to know invented the scissors?

The Answer:

The type of scissors that you use for school projects probably have two pivotable blades connected by a rivet or screw just above the handle. This type of scissors, made with bronze or iron, dates back to ancient Rome and China, Japan and Korea.

Large-scale production of this type of scissors began in 1761, when Robert Hinchliffe of Sheffield, England first used cast steel to manufacture them.
