The 8″ Dressmakers are of high quality and easy to use. We make a right-handed version and a left-handed version. 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. Lightweight and capable, the 4″ carbon steel blades will never let you down. Hot forged and hand made in Sheffield, by craftsmen with traditional techniques. A mirror finish makes these shears the most beautiful tool you’ve ever owned.
