This time, I am asking You about an item. Does anyone out there know exactly what these specialty scissors were made for?

They are signed Hilger & sons, they have a brass rail on one edge that seems to be there to catch some kind of clipping. They are 6” long.

If you’d like a chance to bid on these weird scissors, they will be up at my next live video auction.
