Ernest Wright 13" Sidebent Tailor Shears


You don't so much pick up these huge tailors shears as put them on, like a huge steel gauntlet that conforms so beautifully to the hand that half of the weight of the tool seems to disappear when you hold them.

As serious as they are beautiful, the 13" shears are used for long straight cuts through heavy or multiple layers of fabric on a cutting table, their heavy hot forged carbon steel blades bring an unrivalled authority to the task. When you are making long cuts ,through multiple layers of expensive fabric, mistakes cost plenty, so a sharp tool with plenty of mass that just gets the job done is a priceless friend.

The 'big bolt' through the blades is used like a motorbike stand so that you can just slip your hand back into them without having to pick them up each time - one of those apparently small details that makes such a big difference to minimising fatigue in prolonged use.
