Why are 2 scissors described as being the same length, different lengths when compared?

Some scissor brands like Geib measure their scissors including the finger rest, so depending on the length of the finger rest and the handle design, some Geib scissors may appear shorter 'in real life' when you put them alongside other brands of scissors described as the same length, or against other Geib scissors from different range, depending on the other scissors having a finger rest or not, the length of the finger rest, or the handle / grip layout. We aim to photograph all our scissors against a measuring tape, but if you find a pair without that photo already done, just ask us as we're happy to take a photo for you, or to check any specific measurements before you buy.
