And use a cutting motion on the small part of the neck. It'll Sharpen up your sissor's quick.

Get a paper wheel system, you can sharpen almost anything, including scalpel blades

Those things work, but they don't really SHARPEN scissors. They actually HONE them. Sharpening them takes a 1 inch belt sander with varying grades of sandpaper. I start with 400 and go to 1000 grit. Then I strop the edge to break it for actual sharpening.
