These scissors were part of a small batch that I made after a secondment at Ernest Wright & Sons, Sheffield in 2013. I used their rough drop forged blanks to work on and finish in my own workshop. They were all identical blanks but I realised that the way they were finished, the shaping of the shanks and the bows, the filing of the sections, changed the feel of the finished scissors hugely so I played with seeing how different I could make them.
I was interested in learning to make scissors to put into my knives but I got sidetracked by the wonder of scissors in their own right. Learning their subtleties and beauty was a real pleasure.
