Fabric and tailor's scissors: cut out for the job

Tailor's scissors are specifically designed to cut through fabric without causing frayed edges. There are two main differences between 'regular' scissors and tailor's scissors: the two eyes are often asymmetrical, keeping the elongated eye at the bottom when you're using the scissors. This allows you to pass the scissors under a large piece of fabric without the fabric shifting. Secondly, fabric scissors have an extra-long cutting surface that is sharp as a razor. This improves precision and prevents your scissors from getting stuck in the fabric, which would causing fraying.

How to choose the best fabric and tailor's scissors?

Of course, we only sell top-quality tailor's scissors. We don't want to be responsible for you having to throw away your precious fabric because a pair of scissors damaged it beyond repair. That's why we recommend investing in a good pair of scissors, as these notably retain their sharpness for a longer time.

Moreover, it's good to remember fabric scissors are called that for a reason. If you buy good fabric scissors, make sure you don't keep them in the kitchen drawer. Before you know it, you're accidentally using your scissors to cut open a package or to cut up paper. Not only will it make the scissors dirty, it will also cause them to become dull quicker. Of course, the same is true for common household scissors, but it's something you'll notice more quickly with your fabric scissors. This is because fabric scissors are sharpened at a much smaller angle, making the edge thinner and therefore more vulnerable to damage and blunting. Tailor's scissors are really only meant for cutting fabric.

Professional tailor's scissors are made from the best materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel and titanium. These materials will retain their sharpness even with intensive use.
