These are an absolute delight to use. They were a lot of money but weren’t expensive (if you see what I mean). They are solid and smooth and built to last and can be repaired and sharpened forever and ever. I intend to buy myself a whole set.
I bought them from the great grandson of Ernest Wright himself. Who held them up to his ear and carefully listened to them opening and closing before passing me several pairs of seemingly identical scissors so I could ‘see which pair belongs to you’. Not understanding why I did as I was told and found that each pair was slightly different and I could easily chose my pair after all.
So, here are my handmade thread scissors. I’m going to make them a little case and I’m going to take enormous care over the making of it because I’m pretty sure I’ll have both forever.
