Re: Can you identify this?

According to my source it would be half a scissor though my first 'guess' is technically more accurate.

Excellent Mav. Smiley
If I Google image 'scissor' all I get are pairs of them for obvious reasons.
What do scissor manufacturers call them before they are paired up.
Each scissor in a pair of scissors is different in some way so we have left scissor and right scissor.
A similar situation exists with a pair of compasses.

I found the picture here: http://handcreates.com/2013/12/create-unique-wall-clocks-straws-used/
and the caption says the whole thing is a 'scissor' (see attachment) so the original picture becomes 'half a scissor', simples!  Wink

I bow to your superior knowledge of pterodactyls.
I'm sure people can think of more examples.
