Not a scissor, but serving the same purpose. End the fray! Why didn't someone think of this before? The Thread Burner is perfect for stopping frayed ends of thread on embellishments, peyote stitch, or anywhere raw ends need to be eliminated. Cuts and cauterizes! Fact is that the tip heats to red hot at the touch of a button and melts synthetic threads and silk so that they don't unravel. Powered by one AA battery (included). The Thread Burner is reasonably priced and the ultimate tool for bead stringers.
