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. They’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, “beautiful scissors also manage to be useful.”
While these scissors’ 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 don’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.
