The scissors measure 4 3/4 inches in overall length and have straight stainless steel blades and large finger loop handles. They are not surgical or bandage scissors but multipurpose shears.

The applicable subheading for the scissors will be 8213.00.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for scissors, tailors' shears and similar shears... valued over $1.75 per dozen... other. The rate of duty will be 7.9 cents each plus 7.9 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
