Handmade Household Scissors
These hand-forged household scissors are small and light-weight, and therefore perfect for everyday home and office use. With polished bright steel blades, one sharp and one rounded, they are ideal for stationary, craft and domestic haberdashery, and will fit perfectly alongside your pens and pencils in your desk tidy.
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.
