OVER THE YEARS I HAVE SEEN SISSOR DAGGERS FOR SALE BUT NEVER HAD ONE. SOME WERE SAID TO LOOK LIKE SISSORS BUT DID NOT OPEN AND WERE A DOUBBLE EDGED BLADE. THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SAID TO COME FROM PERSIA OR MOGUL SOURCES.
I SUSPECT ANY THING OPENING LIKE A SISSORS AND HAVING NO EDGE TO THE OUTSIDE IS A SISSOR SOMETHING WITH A SOLID BLADE AND EDGES A TRUE DAGGER. PERHAPS SOMEONE HAS HANDLED ONE? IN DANGEROUS TIMES PERHAPS SOMETHING LIKE THIS WAS MADE AS A CONCEALED WEAPON.
SMALL PICTURE SAID TO HAVE BEEN MOGUL SISSOR DAGGER. OTHER ONE HAS TEXT.
