Left handed general purpose scissor 216mm / 8.5 in orange

Left handed general purpose scissor 216mm / 8.5 in orange
Slim and lightweight left handed general purpose scissor with a very comfortable grip, this new scissor is perfect for the office or study and combines nice style with a great price!

All of our left-handed scissors have the blades reversed with the left blade on top so you can see your cutting line without twisting the scissors. That gives you a clean and straight cut using the scissors in your left hand.
There is no such thing as an "ambidextrous scissor" or "right handed scissors also suitable for left handed use" - if they do not have the blades reversed they are NOT proper left-handed scissors!

Maybe you don't really need left-handed scissors because...

You can just turn right-handed ones upside down and that makes them left-handed

Er - NO! Right-handed scissors have the top blade on the right and it will always stay that way whichever way you turn them round and you still will not be able to see your cutting line or make them cut properly.

You can buy "ambidextrous" scissors that work for right-and left-handed people

NO again - it is the same problem - left-handed scissors need to be manufactured with the blades reversed so the top blade in on the LEFT. We have seen some scissors that have RIGHT-handed blade positions but have just the handles moulded for a lefthander and they are completely useless!

It is better to just get used to right-handed scissors as they are all that is normally available.

Well, us left-handers ARE adaptable and it is possible with a lot of manipulation to sort-of make right handed scissors work in your left hand. But it will be uncomfortable and they won't cut properly, so why do that when you have the chance to use proper LEFT-HANDED scissors? This one is particularly bad for CHILDREN when they first start cutting things out at school because they will not be able to do it and will be seen as awkward and hopeless by the teacher and the rest of the class. Why not just make it EASY?

So - maybe you DO need proper LEFT-HANDED scissors if you want to cut things accurately and easily!

  Brilliant  Why have I not found these before?! Talk about making life so much easier! Very happy customer!   (19/11/2014) -

  A necessity  A must for every lefty. I found them robust and well made. I admit to having problems at first as I have never used left-handed scissors before. If you use scissors a lot especially for prolonged work these would be useful as they fit the hand better.   (01/10/2010) Nat - Shropshire

  Excellent scissors for my 10 year old  Even though these are not junior scissors, my daughter loves them. The grip is comfortable and I'm happy she finally has a pair of scissors she can actually use.   (10/08/2010) Krusie - Texas

  Scissors  I did not realise how much it would mean to my daughter until I bought one. It has made a huge difference to her life. South Africa does not have these kind of stores nor do they cater for lefties. You guys really make a big difference to all those children out there that are classed as "different"   (04/03/2011) Charlene - South Africa

    Great item!! can finally cut a straight line. Thank you.   (13/02/2014) Bonnie - USA

  Scissors  Bought for 2 of our support staff who have put up with 'normal' scissors for years. Both delighted that they can now cut naturally!   (21/11/2014) School Bursar -

  Great scissors!  I bought these for my 9 year old daughter after being frustrated with the "ambidextrous" they have at school. These scissors are great; sharp and easy to use!   (16/08/2010) -

  Really good  I bought these for my 12 year old son to take to school - secondary schools rarely have any left handed scissors for students and, if they do, they're poor quality blunt ones. These're really useful. Really good quality sharp scissors for textiles or paper.   (12/08/2010) -

I bought these for my daughter (the only left-hander in the family). She's used them for absolutely everything & finds them comfortable, versatile and exactly what they say they are - real general purpose scissors. She now uses scissors confidently for the first time in her life. Highly recommended.<

The embroidery scissors have arrived safely and I am very happy with them. I never believed what a difference proper left handed scissors would make to my craft work.
