We’re all set to add an exciting new chapter to our rich history. As Charles Dickens wrote:
“We are but the two halves of a pair of scissors, when apart… but together we are something”.


Ernest Wright remains dedicated to crafting supreme quality, handmade scissors with perfect performance. However, due to the pandemic and high demand, our scissors and shears are available only on backorder at present.

If you place a backorder before 30 July 2021, you will receive your order before Christmas.

If you place your order after 30 July 2021, you will receive your order in the New Year, after a wait time of approximately 26 weeks.

To those customers currently awaiting a backorder, we humbly thank you for your patience and support. We really are sorry for the wait, but this is what’s needed to deliver our usual quality in these unusual times.
