Barber Scissors

Scissors with single finger handled, and a spur or hook on the upper handle are called barber scissors. The are most often used in hairdressing, barbering and other cosmetic hair work.  The design allows for a high degree of precision when using scissors away from any guide or surface.

Various versions of this type of shears are patented, including designs as recent as 2004 and 2006.
