These razor edge left handed hair cutting scissors will give you precision cuts every time. Made in Italy from top quality stainless steel they have a rubber stop between the handles, finger post and a soft rubber insert in the finger hole for comfort. Both the finger post and finger hole insert can be removed if you prefer. These scissors have a really smooth action - as used by professional barbers and hairdressers. Overall size 140mm / 5.5 inches.
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 a natural motion with the scissors held in your left hand - particularly important when cutting hair as you definitely do not want to be getting hair stuck between the blades and pulling rather than cutting properly.
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!
