Fine Handmade Scissors and Shears since 1902

Made in Sheffield, each pair of Ernest Wright’s reflects over a century of knowledge, passion and character. Acquired once, they’ll love you for a lifetime.
HANDMADE IN SHEFFIELD

OUR SCISSORS AND SHEARS

We are committed to crafting scissors and shears with perfect performance. Each pair is given all the time and care it needs. Meticulous attention to detail, pride in our work and love for our customers has always been our primary focus, but it also means we don’t often have stock available to buy straightaway.
Instead, most customers will need to back-order their desired model. Once a back-order is placed, the scissors or shears are usually delivered within approx. 10 weeks. Not all models are currently available on back-order. If you’re interested in an unavailable model, please email ku.oc.thgirwtsenre@ofni so that we can add you to the relevant waiting list.
HANDMADE IN SHEFFIELD

We are committed to crafting scissors and shears with perfect performance.
Each pair is given all the time and care it needs.

To make all of this possible, we craft to order. This means we don’t sell off the shelf, since we don’t have any finished product in-stock. So, your scissors or shears are usually delivered within 10 weeks of your order.
