Story

Made in the legendary steel town of Sheffield England by 11th generation scissor makers, originally designed for industrial use — specifically to cut through Kevlar — these shears are awe inspiring. No matter the material you cut, be it packing tape, fabric, cardboard, or a bolt of ballistic nylon, you'll feel an uncanny sense of ease, and left to wonder how you managed life without them. These shears are the perfect household and workshop tool: heavy, indestructible, extremely sharp, and non-stick (tapes and adhesives won't gum them up).
