Left handed dressmaking scissors, micro serrated blade 214mm / 8.5 in.


Tick to add a pair of 13cm/5in left-handed Embroidery Scissors for only £11.95 (normally £13.95)
Left handed dressmaking scissors, micro serrated blade 214mm / 8.5 in.
This sidebent left handed scissor has one of its forged steel blades finely serrated to give an exceptional cut quality with all types of material. An excellent product of professional quality.

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!

Customer Reviews

  Rare Find  I have left-handed dressmaker's shears and love them. However, to find a *micro-serrated* pair of scissors I had to settle for right-handed - till now! These are excellent quality scissors with a rare combination of qualities. I couldn't find them anywhere else.  (19/11/2014) Judy - Canada

    They have taken me a while to get the hang of because I'm so used to dealing with right-handed ones! Having said that, they cut really well and I love them.   (01/10/2010) -

  Excellent value  I can cut along the entire length of the blade and get an (almost) straight line at last. They even cut through multiple seams without effort.   (11/03/2012) L. Dehornoy - France

  Fantastic!  These are great dressmaking scissors. I love the serrated blade, it even makes cutting silk easier. I also love the weight of the scissors. I have a pair of left handed dressmaking scissors that I have had for 15 years but they don't have the weight in them that these do. They are everything I hoped   (20/03/2012) Anne - Cheltenham

  Fabulous!  Where have left handed scissors been all my life??!! It is a revelation to be able to cut fabric and not end up with a sore left hand. These scissors cut brilliantly. Im very happy with them so far.   (11/06/2012) -

    Grerat value cuts along the entire length of the blade They even cut through multiple seams without effort. Took a long time to finally get a good pair   (20/03/2012) Derek - Landreth

  Excellent  These were a present for my wife. She is very please with them - comfortable and very sharp.   (29/02/2012) -

  excellent  This is the second pair of these scissors that I have had over a period of 20 years. They're quite heavy but equal to the task of cutting heavy fabrics, coats, velvets, etc. They're good on fine fabrics too.   (20/08/2008) Ruth Marshall -

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.
