Heirloom Notions

Scissors & Shears

From Ernest Wright, the UK-based maker of the world’s finest scissors and shears.

More 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.

Over the years, the company has persevered through trials and tribulations — economic downturns and most recently the tragic death of the last Wright family member to lead the business. But they have emerged like the products they make: forged by fire and stronger than ever.
