Lister bandage scissors and utility bandage scissors exhibit the well known angle, while Knowles bandage scissors have blades that are either straight or curved.

The bottom blade of the scissor is longer and goes easily under the bandages. Blunt tip design of the scissor prevents accidental injury during bandage removal very easy, smooth and fast.
