Due to exceptionally high demand, this product is currently in the process of being manufactured in our Sheffield factory and therefore is on back-order. We are expecting production to be completed by w/c 15th March therefore your scissors will be despatched shortly afterwards.
Our 8″ Wilkinson Left-Hand Xtra Sharp Upholstery sidebent scissors are hot-forged from carbon steel, handmade by craftsmen using traditional techniques in Sheffield, England.
Our sidebents 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 upholstery. Our Xtra Sharp sidebents feature one micro-serrated blade and one knife edge blade meaning these sidebents are able to grip slippery materials and reduce cutting effort on tougher fabrics such as canvas, chenille, velvet, microfibre and olefin.
They feature a unique corrosion protection meaning they really are tools for life. The telephone box red handles are handpainted 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.
Designed specifically for left-handed cutting, the blades are reversed to work with the natural direction of pressure from the hand. Never used left-hand scissors before? Head to our blog here to find out how they work.
