Turton left-handed kitchen scissors


Availability: Available on back-order


We are currently in the process of making a batch of this model, and some of the units being produced are still available to backorder. We expect the batch to be finished within 10 weeks, after which point the backorders can be fulfilled. This timescale should be taken as a conservative estimate, not a guarantee, as our production is limited and subject to change due to external factors. This also means that products ordered after the 25th of September 2023 will not be delivered before Christmas.

Classic kitchen scissors for culinary creativity

Designed in the 1920s by Frank Turton, the Turton kitchen scissors are emblematic of a bygone golden era of scissors-making in Sheffield. Today, Ernest Wright has entered a new golden age of its own, and we are proud to continue Mr Turton’s legacy by producing his peerless scissors.

The “Turtons” are a great all-rounder in the kitchen. The blades are sharp, strong and serrated, which makes them more than a match for any ingredient you could care to cut. There’s a nutcracker between the shanks of the scissors, and we’ve even included a bottle opener shaped to modern standards, since bottle designs have changed in the last hundred years.

We broke new ground for the Turtons in 2020, when we secured the dies and forgings for a left-handed variant of the scissors. Left-handed customers are now able to buy a tailored version of these classic kitchen scissors for the very first time.
