8`` Xtra Sharp Sewing Shears

8 Inch Xtra Sharp Sewing Shears

Our 8″ Xtra Sharp Sewing Shears are sidebent scissors are hot-forged from carbon steel, handmade by craftsmen using traditional techniques in Sheffield, England.


Branded with our Wilkinson trademark, paying homage to Thomas Wilkinson & Sons whom we incorporated in 1875.


They are world famous and used by professionals due to their unrivalled quality and craftsmanship. They offer precision cutting for all types of fabric used in sewing. Our Xtra Sharp Shears feature one micro-serrated blade and one knife edge blade meaning these shears are able to grip slippery materials but also reduce cutting effort on tougher fabrics such as canvas, velvet and leather.


A slightly smaller size, perfect for those with small to medium sized hands or who struggle to lift heavy scissors, they provide the same precise cutting as a larger pair of shears.


Featuring a chrome blade protection meaning they really are tools for life. The telephone box red handles are hand painted for durability, comfort and their striking design.


They will arrive packaged in our signature William Whiteley gift box and are also available with bespoke laser engraving creating a truly special and unique gift.

Ideal for cutting:

  • Velvet

  • Polyester

    Love the feel of these! No slip of fabric when cutting through layers, no matter the texture!
