Scissors are required to use the "rip clothing" command on denim and leather clothing to obtain leather and denim strips.

Scissors can be used as an emergency weapon, with the ability to perform execution: jaw stab.

Appearance

Main article: Appearance

Condition

Scissors have a maximum condition of 10. Its rate of degradation is influenced by the short blade and maintenance skills. The chance of losing durability can be simplified to the following formula: 1 in (1 + maintenanceMod × 2). Where "maintenanceMod" is calculated using the short blade and maintenance skills.
Below is an example of the chance of losing durability at varying levels of the maintenance and short blade skills.

For how this is calculated, see: Condition
Maintenance level Short blade level Condition lower chance Average condition
0 0 1/1 (100%) 10
0 4 1/3 (33%) 30
0 8 1/5 (20%) 50
4 0 1/5 (20%) 50
8 0 1/9 (11%) 90
4 4 1/7 (14%) 70
4 8 1/9 (11%) 90
8 8 1/13 (8%) 130
10 10 1/15 (7%) 150
