These high quality 90mm (3.5 inch) stainless steel left handed nail scissors have straight blades with pointed tips, suitable for finger 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!
Terrific!! Great scissors handy for carrying in your bag very sharp and well made. (26/04/2012) Pauline - Brandon
Really excellent nail scissors I have a pair of right-handed nail scissors, but I had been finding it difficult to use them to cut the nails on my right hand. I bought this pair of left-handed scissors and I am really impressed with the quality. They are beautifully sharp and really do the job! (22/08/2010) Sarahbelle -
Top quality nail scissors These are the best left-handed nail scissors I know about - with straight blades. My daughter is right-handed but likes to have a pair for each hand, so useful for both lefties and right-handed people. (04/03/2011) -
Totally excellent quality! I cannot recommend these scissors highly enough! They make cutting nails so much easier and I love it that they are such fine quality and that they have "left-handed" engraved on them too. Brilliant! (27/09/2010) NS - New Zealand
Left handed nail scissors I am right handed person but bought these scissors so that I could cut the nails on my right hand. I have found them to be really useful and so has my wife.However I do not think that I shall require any other left handed product. Thank youi (23/05/2011) -
Excellent nail scissors Like other reviewers, I am right-handed, but arthritis in my left thumb means right-handed scissors are now too painful to use for cutting my right-hand nails. These are sharp, straight and cut beautifully with minimum strain on my thumb. Highly recommended. (03/08/2011) Eleanor - NOrthumberland
Excellent I bought these for my father who was having trouble trimming nails. As it happens they are identical (but mirror image) to the right-handed ones he already owned and he is very happy with them. He uses both pairs, one for each hand! (29/02/2012) David - Cambridge
Great scissors! I recently ordered these scissors as a suprise gift for my mother after she mentioned how much trouble she has cutting the nails on her right hand. She was thrilled! She says they work like a dream and wishes she'd had them years ago. (03/03/2012) Janine - Illinois, USA
A Favourite Item In My Sewing Box/knitting bag One of my favourite scissors for craft work. - Actually there was one LH scissors I liked even more. But these ones are really good for snipping threads. I can use right-handed "embroidary scissors", but I prefer these LH ones. (19/11/2012) Emma - London
Glad we made the purchase Well made and just what we wanted. I am right handed and have difficulty cutting the right hand and husband is a leftie. (15/11/2011) - Hampshire
