The New Craftsmen x Ernest Wright & Son April 07 2016

Based in London (they have a lovely brick-and-mortar in Mayfair), The New Craftsmen celebrates makers of all kinds in the British Isles. For this collaboration, they've partnered with Ernest Wright & Son, a family-owned and operated company out of Sheffield that’s been making scissors since at least 1860—Sheffield records from that time referred to Walter Wright (Ernest Sr.’s father) as “Master Scissor-Putter-togetherer.” The scissors that come out of their factory are still ground and sharpened by hand with specific models for uses as diverse as ribbon cutting and hair cutting. If properly cared for, their scissors will withstand a lifetime of use.
