how is it more like a scissors then a swinging sword? isn't it still just a blade swinging in a different direction? it isn't 2 blades sliding across each other like a scissors, or is it? I haven't seen one up close since I was a kid, so I don't really know the facts.
EDIT: looking it up, I see how it acts like a scissors now
