Strong, lightweight child scissors with blades reversed for left handed use. 16cm / 6 inch overall length with two colour plastic moulded handles also designed specially for left handed use. Rounded blade ends for safety. Blades are marked with a left handed logo to show they are left handed child scissors.
Supplied on a card with clear plastic blister.
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!
Excellent for a craft-loving boy My eight year old son had a pair of these from Santa and took them into school to help with design work. We haven't seen them since because they are being used so much ... I need to get another pair for home! (05/02/2013) Sally - London
Excellent quality Purchased these scissors for my soon to be 9 year old grandson when I saw him struggling to cut with conventional scissors. The quality is excellent and along with the left handed pencil sharpener and other items I purchased are "just the job" for him. (17/11/2012) Nanny Eve - Birmingham
Good quality item Also bought the smaller size for use now but ordered the 6" for the future. Very colourful and a quality item for the price. (06/12/2013) -
Great Pair of Scissors These are the first pair of left handed scissors I havd ever purchased as part of the school supplies I got for my grandson. He never liked to use scissors before he received his first pair of left handers scissors. He loves them. I am very pleased with the items I ordered from your company.
