The Scissorhand is a vicious Drukhari melee weapon that looks a little like a pair of surgical shears bearing expensive toxins so that its wielder can better incapacitate those whose limbs it ultimately amputates. The Scissorhand is a favourite weapon of the Haemonculi and many of their more nightmarish servants like Wracks.
The Scissorhand is a glove with long monomolecular blades attached to the fingertips like claws. The glove has a series of vein-like tubes that run along each finger, slowly and constantly reapplying an incredibly virulent poison to the blades. Victims who receive even the slightest of scratches from these blades become wracked with pain so incredible that it frequently causes the target to pass out or even perish.
