Hot-forged carbon steel sidebent 10″ shears with non-stick coating, for heavy duty tailoring and dressmaking.
William Whiteley & Sons was established in 1760, and received a Royal Warrant in 1840 for their designing and manufacturing of beautiful hand-crafted industrial scissors in the North of England, Sheffield. In 1875, Whiteley’s incorporated another scissor-maker Thomas Wilkinson & Son, also royally appointed. A renowned Master Cutler, Wilkinson invented and patented the ‘sidebent’ scissor. Still a family-run firm, Whiteley’s skills have been passed on down through the generations. Today, Whiteley’s produce over 250 styles of scissor with advanced development for all types of industry keeping their craftsmanship fresh.
