Brass-Knuckle "Guildsman's Shears"

A pair of "Guildsman's Shears" made by L. Shears like this are/were presented to members of the Militant Guild of Rural Tailors (MGRT) upon their acceptance into the secret society. Officially the most bad ass scissors ever.

This looks like a jig I built 15 years ago. I used a heavy section of angle iron with holes every few inches to work uniformly down longer blades.

Only change was adding threaded screw wood taps and purchasing varying sizes of eye bolts to save on time for height adjustment.
