We call this fine pair of semi left-handed scissors the Teilweise, which means “partial” in German. These light-weight fabric and household scissors are completely nickel-plated and the inner surfaces are blue ground for precision by Robuso in the Solingen tradition.
True left-handed scissors are a mirror image of right-handed scissors, but with the Teilweise, the handle has been modified for the grip of a leftie, but the two blades cut as with a righty. These may be more comfortable to use for many lefties accustomed to using right-handed scissors.
🇩🇪 About Robuso Every pair of Ciselier scissors is shipped in a stunning custom-designed Presentation Box containing information about the manufacturer you are supporting, as well as an exclusive Ciselier polishing cloth. Our packaging is both durable and beautiful – just like our scissors.
Robuso was founded in 1919 by Robert Buntenbach and his brother Julius, the great grandfather of Christian Pukelsheim, Robuso’s current managing director. Based in Solingen, Germany’s historic “City of Blades”, this family-run firm’s logo is a playful pretzel, but there is nothing funny about the quality of their scissors and shears. We admire them for their continued commitment to traditional, handmade craftsmanship delivered to the extraordinary standard that the “Made in Solingen” mark requires.

We gave Rubuso 7" Teilweise Semi Left Handed Sidebents as a gift. Our sister, who loves crafting, absolutely loved them. To quote her,"they cut like butter". These scissors are one of the best if not the best gift we have ever gotten her. It is so nice to have given her something so beautiful and well crafted. My partner and I are planning to buy ourselves a pair of Ciselier Scissors . I have to say that the customer service and quality of the scissors, the box, information cards and personalized note were second to none. We love supporting Canadian companies, it is so nice to have found another exceptional one.
As a leftie, I haven't had scissors that work for me since grade school... you learn to contort your hand to use "regular" scissors, and invariably they break and wear out. Enter Ciselier! At first, I was planning to buy "full" leftie scissors, but got some advice from the nice people at Ciselier (basically, that many years of using right-handed scissors would make it a difficult transition). I never even knew "semi left handed" scissors were a thing! Now, I will never look back. The scissors fit in my hand properly (lefties, you won't know what you've been missing until you try). The scissors cut soo smoothly, and feel very high quality. I am VERY pleased with my purchase, and am now considering kitchen scissors for gifts!
