Will cutting sand paper with scissors make the scissors sharper or duller?

Sand paper removes material. When used properly, that removal of material can make a blade sharper. However, when cutting the sandpaper, there is no attempt to structure the removal of the material. It will simply dull the scissors. It will remove material in a relatively haphazard manner, taking off the sharp edge.

If you have any questions of this, ask someone who sews for their nice fabric scissors, and let them know you're going to go cut some paper with them. Find out how quickly they respond in an effort to avoid dulling their scissors. Perhaps its not the most scientific approach, but it is a well documented one, and very evidence based! And that's just normal paper!

Sorry Marvin.  It says right here: Using her fabric scissors for cutting paper IS grounds for divorce.
