Scissors are a wondrous invention and we take our hats off to the anonymous early inventor of such a cunning tool. There are so many scissors on the market, so many choices and a lot of confusion. We have, over the years, tried many of them.
When it came to putting together a range of scissors for Merchant & Mills we decided to go back to the city most associated with quality cutting tools: Sheffield. We went to a factory that supplies Saville Row – our great street of British Tailors, and chose some tools that will last a lifetime. Our Philosophy is: buy once – quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten.
Tailor’s Shears 10″
Our 10” Scissors from Sheffield are chromed by a unique process, giving the blades a sharp, smooth knife edge. They can be sharpened again and again.
The buttonhole scissors are superbly useful for cutting through any thick fabric or layers. With their over sized handles and short sharp blades they handle trimming away and buttonholes in thick fabric like no small sewing scissors can.
The name says it all. Stash them beside your sewing machine or dangle them from you index finger like a gunslinger. They make it swift and simple to rid yourself of all those pesky threads. Fine blades cut close to the fabric giving a neat, perfect thread-free finish to all your dressmaking.
Made in Italy and finished in Sheffield, these 8” pinking shears are very high quality scissors with traditional black enamelled handles. They are a rare find, beautifully sharp right to the tips.
Wide Bow Scissors
Wide bow scissors means that the hole for your fingers is extra large, allowing for accurate and firm control. At just 4″ (10cm) long they are extremely sharp and endlesly useful a deep, permanent black steel.This entry was posted in Uncategorized.
