It’s fantastic to have these iconic scissors back in the shop once again. Each pair of Ernest Wright scissors reflects over a century of knowledge, passion and character. Bought once, they’ll last you a lifetime.

Hot forged and hand finished in Sheffield by craftsmen using traditional techniques, each pair is polished to a high shine.  Lightweight and capable, the carbon steel blades will never let you down. These 8 1/4" shears are taken from an unearthed and revitalised Sheffield pattern.

A versatile scissor, they are perfect for cutting through textiles and tough fabric (canvas, rope, carpet, rubber), making them fit for both professional and daily tasks. They come in a high quality presentation box. Our felt lined leather shear cases also fit the shears perfectly.

Also available as a left handed version.

Total length: 8 1/4" / 21 cm
Blade length: 3 1/4" / 9.5 cm
Weight: 180 g
Material: Drop forged high quality carbon steel for long-life precision edge retention.
