The sewing scissors or castilian are usually metal and are relatively light. It is used to cut the excess tissue in the seam allowances or hems. Usually, one of its leaves just on peak and the other is rounded. The other variant would be with their two leaves with rounded finish (blunt tip) that keeps us from snagging on delicate fabrics like chiffons, georgettes or silks.

The scissors for embroidery constitute a model that is more cropped than the previous ones. The leaves are much more tapered, narrow and pointed. Indicated mainly in work embroidery, today calan in the traditional stitching thanks to their designs of vintage style. Can also be curved, both in the central area as in the tip, which facilitates access to difficult areas of the frame and becomes even more accurate.

The scissors serrated or zig-zag cut are also called "scissors for festonear". In the traditional seam is usually used to trim the edges of the tissues. It would save us the overlocking in some cases. From my experience with the fabrics, there is the general belief that does not need finish off the tissues if you use these scissors, but it is not so. It is usual to use it in tissues that are not prone to fraying (satines, synthetic leather, felts, flannels, lace, jacquares double fabric, patchwork, dots, etc.). The most common use may be in crafts (shape rubber eva, felts, etc.) and haberdashery to the finish bonds to the hair or decoration.
