Hand Forged Work Masters
Ultra robust and beautifully designed, these hand-forged carbon tool steel scissors will cut through all and everything. The micro-serrated chrome plated blades powered by the force and high leverage that the long shanks provide, enable these scissors to cut through the toughest of cable to thick wire, to metal sheeting. They will also handle your more delicate textile and card cutting needs. The perfect gift for those working in home or industrial crafts - and an excellent addition for the tool cupboard.
Our scissors and shears are made by a family run business located in Sheffield, England - the home of British steel, cutlery and blade-making. They are the last industrial scissor maker in the UK, and the oldest scissor-smiths in the western world being granted the Royal Warrant by appointment to her Majesty Queen Victoria in 1840. Each scissor is still hand-made, assembled and tested by craftsmen, using the skill and techniques honed and handed down over centuries. Hand-forged from carbon steel, they are then trimmed, dressed, sanded, drilled, ground, hardened, polished, assembled, and, finally, japanned – where handles are manually dip-coated in primer then in paint. The exacting process from start to finish is all completed by hand, by eye - by skill. For instance, the grinding of the blades is completed on a saddle-mounted grinding wheel; a highly skilled operation carried out by a master grinder who has worked at the factory since he was 14 years old – one of the last traditional blade grinders left in the world.
