Scissors are recurring items in the Rusty Lake series, with several different pairs appearing over two games. Similarly to the knife, they are often used for cutting various other items.
Cube Escape: Case 23Edit
In the third chapter of the game, the player is inside the Chapel. There is a slot where the Heart can be placed. Once is is put in, the compartment opens to reveal the scissors. They are used to cut the thread stitching the old boatman's mouth shut so that he can row Dale across Rusty Lake to the Cabin.
Rusty Lake: RootsEdit
In 1867, Mary Vanderboom is ready to give birth to her triplets. The scissors can be found in a nearby drawer. It is first used to cut a plant to make a birth potion, then to cut the umbilical cords of the babies as they are born.
In 1904, Albert is performing a ritual. He uses two voodoo dolls to control his brother Samuel and his wife Ida. After matching Ida's positions and facial expressions to the code on a small box, the player unlocks the box and retrieves the scissors. They are used to cut a button eye off each doll, which removes an eye each from Samuel and Ida.
In 1918, Leonard returns injured from fighting in the trenches in WWI. The scissors are found in a drawer. They are used to cut away the bandages on his face. In 1927, Frank is inside his house's bathroom. After the room is warm enough, and Frank has a hot bath, he gives the player a key, which is used to unlock a drawer. The scissors found inside are used to cut Frank's hair, which becomes the ninth sacrifice.
