General purpose scissors with ergonomic handles for left-handed use. Comfortable soft-grip handles and stainless steel blades designed to be long-lasting for a variety of cutting tasks. 10 year manufacturer warranty.
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!
Why not get even better value?

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!
Perfect I have been using these scissors for many years now, they make life that much easier being a lefty in a rigthy world. I always struggled with right-handed scissors till I came across these. Now life is so much easier. I recently ordered some new ones as my older pair had seen better days. Thank you. (29/05/2017) Dave - Lancs
Sooo much better than right handed scissors I broke my right wrist and the frustration of 12 weeks of not being able to use scissors was too much. I got the left handed ones. They are so good I've carried on using them even though my wrist has healed. If you have a left hander just get them some of these....perfect (03/06/2019) Ruth - Lancashire
Comfy & easy to use These are great to use as can now see where I am cutting. I/m sure that they'll last me years. (04/06/2019) CJG -
