I was disappointed to discover that I am too clumsy for long scissors.
My favorite scissors are actually from an ER suture removal kit. They are short, four inches or so, but one of the blades has a hook-like tip. The hook makes a great guide when trying to clip just one thin shoot from a clump of hairgrass.
