Haberdasher Scissors | The Society IncIN STOCK
Scissors in all their shapes & sizes remind me of a place, a trade, a specialised task that only one shape can do. Whilst this pair is for general use only, it harks back to a time of haberdashery stores lined with ribbon, buttons, cords, trims & passementeries. There is no reason why utilitarian tools should not be beautiful and these brass beauties are for use & display, the show-off of all scissors.
Measurements: 18h x 9.5w cm.
Finish: brass with a copper stud
Our products are hand forged using honest & humble materials. Their imperfections, patinas and variations are intrinsic to the underlying importance of craftsmanship within India.
Our brass will patina & age over time, this ever-changing characteristic makes the object even more beautiful.
Linseed oil or penetrol can be used on all of our blackened steel to keep it rich & dark in colour. This will also prevent & remove any rust which may build up over time in coastal or wet environments. Dot a rag with penetrol & massage into the steel for 3-5 minutes & leave to dry. We recommend a few coats over the life of the product.
Our raw leather products are designed to age & darken over time. We love when the story of the user & their environment is imprinted on our products. Oxalic acid can be used to wipe down your raw leather to remove any dark stains or spills. A little goes a long way!
