I recently learned that stork scissors originated as tools used by midwives; hence the stork imagery. Apparently they started out as umbilical clamps, not scissors.

Because midwives often had a lot of time on their hands while waiting for birth, they'd work on projects like knitting or embroidery, and the clamps morphed into the more useful scissors we know today.

Super cool history. :da_love:

@Rheall damn, those are the coolest scissors I've ever seen
