(We do have plenty of stock of the straight nail scissor - code 208)
Stainless steel high-quality 3.5 inch left handed nail scissors with curved blades designed to give a gentle shape to fingernails and toenails.
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!
Fantastic It's the first time in 50 years I've been able to use nail scissors properly. Very odd to begin with but fantastic after 'relearning' the correct way. (31/03/2011) David Jack -

LH Nail scissors - great! As a right hander I find it difficult to cut the nails on my right hand using 'normal' nail scissors. Buying a pair of left handed hscissors has made my life easier! A great product. Delivery was quick and the quality is high - I heartily recommend these guys as suppliers! (16/11/2012) Tony Brearton - Cyprus

Cutting Success I bought these scissors for myself as I got so fed up with trying to cut my nails on the right hand with right handed scissors! I am so delighted with my purchase. My brother is left-handed so this is where his next Christmas present will be purchased. (02/08/2010) Ms Jackie Lawrence - Somerset
excellent poducts and service (23/05/2011) -
Great scissors I'm not left handed but I found it impossible to cut the nails on my right hand with normal scissors. I was using clippers but I was told that they damage your nails so I decided to try these. They are good quality and nice to use. I have very strong nails but these coped well with them.

Great! No more moans and groans from my husband about trying to cut his toenails "backwards, upside down, cack-handed". Quick delivery to France and a super product.Thanks. (03/02/2013) Sandra - France
a very good product.Only problem is that sharpeners do not understand the mechanics! (24/10/2011) -
Great Really great but took a while to get used to after so many years of being "right" handed. (07/06/2012) Linda - Cyprus
