Handmade in Sheffield from high carbon steel these top quality button hole scissors cut precise button holes right to the tip of the blade.  Hot forged blades, measures 5" from tip to blade.

Keep your scissors in top condition by occasionally oiling with a fine machine oil, then wiping gently with a soft cloth.

"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.
