I've always called them scissors, and have never heard anyone say "scissor". Merriam-Webster does too. :)

scissors
1 : a cutting instrument having two blades whose cutting edges slide past each other

Alrighty then. I'll go ahead and stick with what most every dictionary says, as far as this particular commonly used instrument.

Why are pants referred to as pants and not pant? Maybe because like pants, scissors have two parts and pants have two legs?

Wouldn't that be the same with scissors? a scissor is one piece of a scissors, a pant would be one leg of pants, right?

Scissors. If you try to purchase them it will say scissors on the package. Unless you look up scissor in the urban dictionary, then you are in for a few treats that you may or may not be looking for. Ha!
