The 'Linear Scissors' Let You Rapidly Cut Immaculate Lines

Designer Tamás Fekete was frustrated with the difficulty of cutting in a straight line so he created the Linear Scissors. Fekete's scissors were designed to allow you to quickly cut in a straight line without using a guide or paper guillotine. The Linear Scissors incorporate a unique handle to keep your cutting completely straight. As a result, you can cut perfect lines even if you don't have access to a cutting knife and a ruler.

At first glance, it looks like there's nothing special about the Linear Scissors. However, upon closer inspection you can see that the handles are formed differently. The sides of the handles are raised to act as a guide while you're cutting. All you have to do is make an initial cut and then use the handle as a guide as you slide your scissors along the paper.
