Scissors in all their shapes & sizes remind me of a place, a trade, a specialised task that only one shape can do. Although these scissors are general use only, they are a nod to milliners past who would have busied themselves with picking seams & cutting thread with a specialty set of blades and leather wrapped handle to soften the grip.
Measurements: 16h x 9.5w cm.
Finish: leather & blackened steel
Our products are hand forged using honest & humble materials. Their imperfections, patinas and variations are intrinsic to the underlying importance of craftsmanship within India.
If the product is made from brass, it will patina & age over time. This ever-changing characteristic makes the object even more beautiful.
If the product is blackened steel, Linseed oil or Penetrol can be used to keep it rich & dark in colour. This will also prevent & remove any rust which may build up over time in coastal or wet environments. Dot a rag with Penetrol & massage into the steel for 3-5 minutes & leave to dry. We recommend a few coats over the life of the product.
If the product is crafted with raw leather, it is designed to age & darken over time. We love when the story of the user & their environment is imprinted on our products. Oxalic acid can be used to wipe down raw leather to remove any dark stains or spills. A little goes a long way!
