Left handed embroidery scissors 13cm/5in with 2 sharp blades, black handles

Embroidery scissors in protective plastic packaging
High quality left handed embroidery scissors made in Germany from top grade stainless steel, with two sharp points and moulded plastic handles.

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

  Fantastic accurate Embroidery scissors  These embroidery scissors will be an asset to any crafter. The blades cut through fabric with ease, right to the tip and with the left handed blades it is so easy to actually see where you are cutting. I searched the world over and couldn't find anything else as good for such a great price.  (16/11/2012) Rosemary Neill - New Zealand

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.
