6-inch blades made with hard, strong high carbon stainless steel. Lightweight but keeps a super-sharp edge longer. Cuts beautifully. Made in Solingen, Germany.
Made in a city where quality craftsmanship is literally enforced by law, these scissors are hot-forged and cast from carefully tested, stainless high carbon steel. Theyâ€™re light, easy to wield, and hold their sharp edge longer, existing in intentioned opposition to flimsy, cold-forged convenience store varieties.
As Massimiliano Mandel argued in his lyrically specific history, Scissors, most objects lose their functionality when they become aesthetically pleasing. But, said Mandel, â€œbeautiful scissors also manage to be useful.â€
While these scissorsâ€™ modern sleekness is nowhere near as extravagant as a Victorian piece, they are as elegant as they are functional.
Sharpness is important for all scissors, but especially for paper scissors. They donâ€™t have the brawn to gnaw through things like kitchen scissors, and paper will simply slide between the blades of a dull pair. If paper scissors aren’t sharp enough to make a smooth, clean cut, then they’re little more than decoration.
