When trying to figure out what to do with my sewing scissors and how to keep them from being mistaken for paper scissors by curious family members I thought of using a magnetic knife holder for them. It fits on the wall over my sewing machine and it is well known the only one who can touch the scissors on that bar is me!

The magnet is incredibly powerful. No chance the scissors will fall.

Great Idea. The only precaution is that the magnet should be strong enogh to hold lest the falling scissor might hurt?????????

I did the same thing but found that it worked better monted vertically. It is especially helpful for small tweezers and bodkins which are often hard to locate when you are busy with a project.

Chesapeake Knife shop but I'm pretty sure any kitchen store would have them. I've seen them on Amazon too.
