    'pair of scissors' or 'scissors'

    Hi! I just need to clarify - would i be correct if i wrote 'I cut the cloth with a pair of scissors' or 'I cut the cloth with scissors'. also, if i added an adjective, what would happen - for example, which would be correct - 'pair of sharp scissors' or 'sharp pair of scissors'.
    Thanks

    They are all correct. Please remember to always capitalise the personal pronoun "I".
