EXO was conceived in 2015 by lifelong scissorsmiths and Whiteley company directors Jeremy and Sally Ward . Inspired by a visit to the Advanced Manufacturing Show in Birmingham UK, they envisaged an innovative new way to manufacture scissors.
The initial inspiration came from our Wilkinson tailors’ shear range, the original design patented by our very own ‘Master Cutler’ Thomas Wilkinson in 1800. This has evolved and developed over the years as we have honed our craft; EXO pays homage to this design.
We have also incorporated the ‘bolt’ element of our professional shear range, which allows for a speedy and smooth ‘pick up’ and ‘put down’ motion – as well as adding an eye-catching styling cue.
We spent a long time ensuring the handle shape was the most ergonomic and comfortable it could possibly be, with 3D-printed components generated from the digital data.
Offering the perfect combination of style and performance, the EXO range comes in a selection of finishes for you to choose from.
