Ernest Wright 12" Paper Hangers - Ciselier Exclusive

Length: 12"

We're the first to admit that these scissors are a little... unusual. We're delighted to be able to offer a very limited selection of scissors from Ernest Wright, the venerable and famous heritage maker from Sheffield. When we heard about these whopping 12" paper hangers, crafted from blanks forged in the 1980's and not since, we could not resist. Traditionally used by wallpaperers to make long, straight cuts, these 12" scissors are not for the faint of heart, and would be right at home in any collection. Or, perhaps someone in your life needs a pair of "big ass scissors"? These are them.

  • Drop-forged carbon steel
  • Meticulously hand polished, stainless steel mirror finish
  • Custom 12" brown leather Ernest Wright-branded scabbard
  • Complimentary shipping

  • For a sense of their scale, please look at the size illustration in our photo gallery. At present, available only through Ciselier.

    A beautiful piece of work. I love the fact that it is hand polished not plated. I won’t be hanging a lot of paper but they will be useful when doing wrapping paper.

    Thank you so much for your review, Howard! Judging by your comments, we’re pretty sure you meant to give these beautiful scissors more stars. We’re so glad you’re happy!
