The heart of Vector scissors is a solution to a common problem which a lot of us already knows: If you want to cut a large piece of paper or some kind of material you have to pre-mark the line for which you need to use a ruler and a pencil.
The top/left part of Vector sits on top of the table while the bottom/right half presses against the side of it.
To cut a straight line, you simply place your paper over the corner of a table, providing the right angle for you to begin cutting.
You start going forward and Voila! A straight cut from a scissor – something you never could have done before!
- Straight cuts without using additional tools
- everyday use besides straight cut
- Unlimited cutting length
- easy handling
- Comfortable, convenient use
"Yet when to comes to the common task of cutting in a straight line, craftspeople would have little choice but to break out heavy-duty solutions like paper cutters. Concepts like the Vector Scissors..., may someday fill that void...
"Genius! Scissors have evolved slowly over the years ... Designer Tamás Fekete has sliced through millennia of shear repetition and designed a new pair of scissors…"
The early concept of Vector scissors was the end result of my first year project at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design where I study at the faculty of product design. After the concept created quite a buzz around the web and a lot of people were interested in having Vector Scissors, we decided to make it become a real product.
Handcrafted in Hungary
The blades of Vector are handcrafted in Hungary. They are made of stainless steel from Solingen which are tempered, individually whetted and adjusted precisely by hand. Therefore Vector scissors are not just accurate, but they are also beautiful pieces of craftsmanship.
What We Need & What You Get
We have a large connection of suppliers and manufacturers who are ready to start the manufacturing. Even though Vector Scissors look very simple, they are difficult to manufacture. It requires a lot of stages and components are expensive. In order to make this project economically feasible, we need to begin the production with a minimum order number.
We would be paying the cost of materials, production, packaging and shipping with the help of the collected funds. The handles require injection molding which is the most expensive part of this project. We are talking about manufacturing 2000 pieces in the first run, which is a big expense. This is why the minimum amount is where as it is now and this is why we need your help.
By backing us not only you can get your own pair of scissors or something else you choose but also you will be part of the birth of this unique new tool.

Risks & Challenges
We are very confident and enthusiastic about Vector Scissors. We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan but sometimes forecasts don’t always hit the mark. If we missed something, we will let you know and make it right as quickly as possible.
If we don't reach our funding goal or we stop below a critical amount, we will send back all of your contributions!
Minor changes may occur with the final design due to ergonomic and manufacturing requirements. It is absolutely mandatory for us to give you a product with the highest quality.
Component supply, manufacturing delay and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work very hard to quickly solve everything.
