These tools allow an artisan to extend their ability to deal with the bonds that all enchanted items require. They most often take the form of a small pair of shears, scissors or snips, depending on the materials the artisan works with. Some traditional crafters - especially in Wintermark, Varushka and among the Navarr - favour rune-carved blades, with which they inflict a tiny nick on a person whose bond they are severing. Often a little of the blood is used to sketch the rune Evrom on the item, assuming both owner and item are present.
Whatever form they take, lodestone shears are usually made of heavy metal and generally marked with the Rune of Ending.
