Ernest Wright Scissors



Many years ago I learned about Ernest Wright, the last hand made scissor artisans in the world. They are located in Sheffield, England. I bought two pairs of dressmaking shears before they went out of business. A few years later they we bought and re-opened by a German man who valued hand craftsmanship. He has really brought the company into the 21st century.

They came across of half century old steel blanks and decided to make them into functioning scissors. There were general purpose scissors and quilting and embroidery scissors.

    1. Thank God for rotary cutters and snippers. My thumb joints are backwards so cutting has always been hard and the thumb hole makes my hand go numb! I can do a few cuts but not for any amount of time.
