I am pretty sure that everyone reading this has used a pair of scissors. My first pair were the blunt-nosed kind. I loved them and, to my mother’s great dismay, immediately filled the house with tiny bits of paper. (I was about three and a half.) There is a wide range in the quality of scissors: poorly made ones are a misery to use, a good pair can cut almost effortlessly.
Today’s video features Cliff Denton, the man who makes sure that the scissors produced by Ernest Wright and Sons of Sheffield, England are in perfect working order. He is (a new term to me) the putter-togetherer.
I hope you have a chance to use really good scissors if you are cutting anything this weekend. (You might even be interested in ordering a pair of these.)
