Item details

These scissors are the cat's meow!

These cat shaped scissors are an original design, and would make a lovely addition to any project basket.

This pair of matte black scissors measures about 4" in length, and are nice and heavy. The shortened blades are perfect for any type of thread or yarn snipping! The design is fully 3D, they are not flat on one side like other scissors you might find.

The finish on these is done in the primitive style, the way the blacksmiths of early colonial days used to finish their scissors after forging them. When cleaning them, they should be wiped gently with a soft cloth to protect the finish.

Each of the Kelmscott Designs scissors styles begins with a hand drawing, and is manufactured to exacting specifications. It can take several months to get a design "just right" before it's ready for release.

The scissors were purchased as a gift for a friend. She says they cut well and the finish does not rub off on your hands. The item shipped at the very end of the time listed in the item's description (just shy of one week from purchase). If you'd like your item sooner rather than later, I'd suggest contacting the shop owner to have it shipped in a more timely manner.

I absolutely love these! They arrived very quickly though I have been busy and haven't had a moment to leave a review until now, my apologizes. But yes these snips are everything I was hoping they would be! Just wonderful! Thank you!
