About Ernest Wright
Since 1902, Ernest Wright’s heirloom scissors have been meticulously crafted by the hand and hammer of master “Putters” in their Sheffield, England, workshop. No two blades are ever the same, yet each pair is cut to equal perfection to last you a lifetime. The Ernest Wright name is engraved only after performance and finish are approved.
