The philosophy ‘buy once, buy well’ has never been truer than with scissors. Merchant & Mills scissor factory are leaders in their field with heritage stretching back over 250 years. They are the last remaining scissor factory in Sheffield, England.
Scissors can be a one-time purchase. Choose the best you can afford.
How to keep your scissors in peak condition:
After sewing, wipe the insides of the blades with a clean soft cloth. If you feel like your scissors are ‘crunching’ when closing, it’s because dust and fibres have built up in between the blades – wiping them down will cure and prevent this recurring. If you are using scissors on heavy duty fabrics, use a little machine oil over the blades.
Avoid dropping them! Never use them on paper or anything that is not cloth!
