German tailor's shears
£42.00 - £50.00
Eight or nine inch hot forged chrome plated carbon steel tailor's shears with black enamelled handles and large easy adjust bolts for tightening or disassembly for easier sharpening. The blades are slightly curved and hollow ground ensuring they meet only at the point of cutting, as all quality scissors ought to be - this results in a cleaner cut, less chance of dead spots along the length of blades, and slower dulling. If sharpening any scissors it's worth remembering never to work on the inner edge of the blades as this may cause the edges to no longer properly meet. Paired, assembled, tempered, and ground by the master grinders of Dovo Stahlwaren, in Solingen Germany who have been manufacturing cutting implements in city since their founding by Carl Dorp and Carl Arthur Voos in 1906.
