Composite materials scissors
8" high carbon specially case hardened tool steel scissors developed for the cutting of carbon, kevlar, and glass fibre cloths - materials which will blunt ordinary scissors within a few minutes use. With a high leverage, machined pivot screw, modified grinding and setting, and xylan low friction coating for added protection these are certainly the toughest scissors we've seen. Made in Sheffield by William Whiteley & Sons, scissor makers since 1760, or for at least 11 generations. With over 250 standard patterns covering all uses from paper hanging to formula one composites, they are exceptionally committed to the art of scissor manufacture, and rightly proud to maintain a tradition for quality stretching back 250 years.
