ONE OF THE 20

 

BUY ONCE, LOVE FOREVER

We’re proud of being featured in a cover story of The Daily Telegraph, where Ernest Wright’s ‘Turton’ is among 20 things you should buy at least once in your life. We couldn’t agree more.

  THE STORY 

ONE OF 20…

On the 3rd of February this year the Daily Telegraph ran a cover story about 20 Household items to buy once and love forever. In the article, a trend is spotted that an increasing number of people are beginning to shy away from throwaway items. For deep down they know that somewhere down the line the real price is paid. Whether it be child-labour, the environment, modern slavery or just plain quality.

TURTON

When we re-started production of our classic Turton, our Master Putters were very surprised. Instead of pushing them to be more productive we were actually slowing everything down. Optimizing the process first, getting rid of hazardous substances and putting the right amount of effort into making the perfect kitchen scissors. It’s an item that will stay with you the rest of your life, therefore there’s simply no cutting corners.

WEDDING PRESENT

Around the time I negotiated with the Receiver about the assets of Ernest Wright, I was in the car with my 84-year old father. He asked me: “Why are you buying a scissors company?” I tried to explain it to him and talked about traditional craftwork, durability, passion for handmade products and so on. He didn’t seem impressed.

“Do you remember mum always uses a pair of poultry scissors at Christmas?”, I asked him. Then, a smile appeared. He knew exactly when they got it, and how. It was a wedding gift, exactly 55 years ago. Now my case was clear: ‘our’ company has been selling scissors since the beginning of the 1900’s and as Tara Button mentioned in the Daily Telegraph: “Ernest Wright makes the only pair of kitchen scissors you could give as a wedding present!”
