Left handed cutting and scissors guide (Download)

We have produced this book to help your left-handed child with using scissors and cutting out shapes properly. Scissors are the item most commonly referred to as difficult to use by left-handers, and they are a perfect example of a totally right-handed design, which becomes extremely inefficient and uncomfortable when used in the left hand. Imagine the frustration of being the only child in class who cannot cut out the card shapes because the paper or card keeps tearing and you cannot seem to cut neatly along a line however hard you try! By using a pair of proper left-handed scissors, following the basic guidance given here and a bit of practice this need never be a problem again.

Customer Reviews

  Simple, effective, brilliant!  Currently using these with my 5 year old son who is very artistic. He used to freak out when he couldn't cut his 'latest masterpiece' out and was having real difficulty at school too. However, supply the right tools and guides... should be made compulsory at schools with left handed pupils.   (01/12/2010) Stuart Dalgleish - Cambridgeshire

It was amazing for me to watch my son who had previously resisted my every attempt at getting him to write his letters. Today he sat with his Left Handed Writing book and markers and happily went through page after page. Because I'm not left-handed it's easy for me to forget the obstacles he faces, but I can see that I will likely be using your website in the future to provide left handed gear for my son.<
