Alpen 3.5" Petite Stork Embroidery - Ciselier Exclusive

Length: 3.5”

The delightful Petite Stork is the smaller, more traditional version of our Grande Stork scissors. A perennial classic, stork snips are said to have originated as a tool used by midwives to cut the umbilical cord after a baby’s birth.

  • Traditional heritage dimensions
  • Handcrafted in Italy
  • High-strength C50 carbon steel
  • Hand-polished gold and nickel finish

  • Embroidery scissors have evolved into a high art form, treasured for centuries for their use in delicate embroidery and fine needlework and are very popular with collectors.

    🇮🇹 About Alpen Premana
    Alpen is a family-run manufacturer in Premana, an Italian village in Lecco that is a centuries-old centre of heritage cutlery and blades. Brothers Mauro and Pietro Gianola are the second generation to run this business, founded in 1964 during a period of explosive growth that saw Premana emerge as one of the world’s premier scissor-making regions. Alpen’s superior quality, brilliant designs and commitment to traditional craftsmanship have recently attracted growing recognition outside of Italy.

    With the exception of Alpen's Schoolhouse Lefties, every pair of Ciselier scissors is shipped in a stunning custom-designed Presentation Box containing information about the manufacturer you are supporting. Our packaging is both durable and beautiful – just like our scissors.

    My wife and our homes only embroider has fallen in love with her little stork scissors. Happiness all around from the gifts recipient and from me, the gift giver. What was real fun was I had just pulled the package from the mail box and walking into the house my wife was complaining about how she needed some real good scissors… the timing could not have been more perfect. Thanks

    Just beautiful

    These lovely scissors will be a gift for my sister for her birthday. They will replace the ones she had that belonged to our grandmother.

    Precision sharp!

    I couldn’t be happier with my Petite Stork scissors! Stylish, sharp, & oh so satisfying to use. I lost embroidery scissors to TSA years ago and have been pining for a replacement ever since. Really happy about.
