    Those sorts pf extra bits are generally to help you hold the shears without having to use as much grip, I would not be surprised if they were wool shears or some form of pruning shears. The thing I know about welders is that the do end up with odd tools, so that isn't going to be a huge help. Hopefully someone else has run across scissors like this before. Its a bit hard to tell in the video, are the blades centered to the handles or are they offset?
