Very sharp, all-steel scissor cuts paper, fabric and other thin materials.


These scissors are made to the quality level as one used to find in your Grand Parents Tailor’s / Sewing Boxes when families made or tailored their own suits and dresses. They are Ice-tempered to maintain the very sharp cutting edge demanded by fabric scissors. They are manufactured to fit your hand ergonomically way before “Ergonomic” was even in the dictionary. These are “Old School Baby” and a pleasure to offer at a very affordable price

Additional Info: What exactly is “Ice-Tempered”? To make steel hard, it has to be heat treated. With stainless steel, that means heating the steel above 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature the structure of the material is at its optimum. To preserve this structure, the steel is cooled rapidly (quenched) and tempered at about 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Now you have a pretty good hardness and flexibility on your tool except that the chromium in the steel will not permit a long-lasting cutting edge. To make the cutting edge last longer, the steel is subjected to about 120 degrees below zero; in other words, "Ice Tempered". The tool is not much harder, but the steel structure is at its optimum.

Very sharp, all-steel scissor cuts paper, fabric and other thin materials. 8 inches long overall.

These are the scissors I have been looking for

by Bernie -

If you remember scissors from a while ago that weren't just stamped out and that lasted a while and were worthy of actually having someone of skill sharpen them, these are for you.
I have bought numerous pairs of shears from other places with all sorts of promises about sharpness and dependability and they have all fallen short. When they stop cutting well I throw them out.
This pair has earned a permanent place in my tool kit. The heft and feel are just "right", I don't know really how else to put it.
Well worth the price.
