Dressmaking Shear / Scissor 8 Inch

(Left-hand and right-hand options available from option selection)


Our 8″ Xtra Sharp Sewing Shears are sidebent scissors are hot-forged from carbon steel, handmade by craftsmen using traditional techniques in Sheffield, England.

Branded with our Wilkinson trademark, paying homage to Thomas Wilkinson & Sons whom we incorporated in 1875.

They are world-famous and used by professionals due to their unrivalled quality and craftsmanship. They offer precision cutting for all types of fabric used in sewing. Our Xtra Sharp Shears feature one micro-serrated blade and one knife edge blade meaning these shears are able to grip slippery materials but also reduce cutting effort on tougher fabrics such as canvas, velvet, and leather.

A slightly smaller size, perfect for those with small to medium-sized hands or who struggle to lift heavy scissors, they provide the same precise cutting as a larger pair of shears.

With chrome blade protection, these tools are built to last. The telephone box red handles are hand-painted for both durability and comfort, enhancing their striking design.

They will arrive packaged in our signature William Whiteley gift box.
