12`` Xtra Sharp Sewing Shears

12`` inch Xtra Sharp Sewing Shears

Our 12″ Xtra Sharp Sewing Shears are sidebent scissors hot-forged from carbon steel, handmade by craftsmen using traditional techniques in Sheffield, England. Our Xtra Sharp range features one micro-serrated blade and one knife edge blade meaning they grip slippery materials easily but also reduce cutting effort on tougher fabrics such as canvas, velvet and leather.


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


The term ‘sidebent’ refers to the shape of the scissor; the handle that is bent upright allows the shears to cut flat along a table, therefore not disturbing any fabric you are cutting, allowing you to cut easily in a straight and accurate line. 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.


A larger, more professional size, they are ideal for those used to working with a heavier pair of shears and require frequent long cutting lengths in their projects..


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 presentation box with bespoke foam and are also available with bespoke laser engraving creating a truly special and unique gift.
