We´ve always used these hand-forged scissors in Textilesnaturales but are now down to the last 3 pairs in the shop. As the blacksmith himself is elderly and not very well we´re not sure when we´ll be getting any more in so we thought we´d write a post as a kind of homage to what we think are the most beautiful and authentic scissors we´ve ever seen.
I bought my first pair way back in 1995 and they´re still going strong and have aged beautifully. The maker´s mark confirms its origins.
The “A” surrounded by a spotted ring, reminds me of the EU symbol. Yes, we have some great craft traditions in Europe so let´s shout about them!
