I am SO HAPPY, I recently received my highly anticipated new scissors. I saved up for a year and ordered a pair of hand-forged, -sharpened & -polished stork scissors from Ernest Wright https://www.ernestwright.co.uk/ and then waited (and waited and waited!) for them to work through their backorder queue … and finally 6 months later I HAVE THEM!
These are gorgeous scissors. So beautiful to look at, and beautiful to use.
These cut through wool & polyester felt with so little effort, and are so sharp & precise, you can cut incredibly tiny tiny bits to exact shapes. They cut floss & thread so cleanly, it is a breeze to thread tiny needles!
There is no smushing of the fabric being cut, just sharp edges cutting. I am afraid I can never go back now … it’s like your first time using quality pinking shears to cut fabric. Shivers! But my old embroidery scissors can do pick up other jobs in cutting paper & vinyl and such.
Oh it is such a joy to sit down to stitch now!!!
