These are my favourite scissors for most mending jobs and live permanently in my go-to mending kit.
If I was allowed only one pair of scissors, I would choose these. They might not be the most beautiful pair in my collection, but they excel at their job and are worthy of devotion – and they have a lifetime warranty!
The extra-sharp points and double-ground blades allow you to make precise cuts – perfect for trimming fabric, snipping threads, fine-tuning needle-felted patches and unpicking embroidery stitches. They're suitable for use right- or left-handed.
True story no. 1: I first discovered these scissors many years ago when I spent an entire Friday evening in an extremely large craft store, trying out every pair of scissors until I found the one true pair to beat them all (this pair!) – with the sharpest points, smoothest scissor action and a comfortable grip. You're welcome.
True story no. 2: The warning on the back says: "These scissors are sharp and can be dangerous if misused. Always use with care and supervision is recommended for children." They’re so sharp that I have become a bit too excited on occasion and accidentally poked extra holes in items I’m supposedly mending.
You've been warned. ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°)
Made in China from stainless steel (blades) and plastic (handles) and packaged in clear plastic with a cardstock insert.
This shop is in slow mode so I can enjoy a better work-life integration as a shop owner and mum of two tiny tots. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.

Australia Post has been experiencing significant delays. If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
