No.5 The Applique Scissors (Duck Billed)

Regular price £22.95

6 ” a p p l i q u e s c i s s o r s

Handmade in Sheffield these duck billed scissors ensure precise cutting for applique projects. The curve of the blade pushes away the bottom layer of fabric ensuring accurate controlled cuts close to the stitching.

Hard wearing carbon steel blades for long life precision edge retention.

Should be stored dry.

Uncompromising quality and craftsmanship that will bring you a lifetime of cutting.

"Hot forged" - steel is heated in a furnace and forged with a drop hammer into the desired shape. It is an expensive process but produces a high quality scissor with excellent grain structure and hardness.

"Pivot" - a high quality screw that has been engineered to hold the blades in the correct plane.

All of our Ultimate Scissor collection are hand made for us in Sheffield, a city renowned for its cutlery and steel, by makers that have been producing high quality, traditionally hand-finished scissors and shears for over 250 years.
