I adore these scissors! The rainbow-effect plasma coating add an extra something special to this traditional design. The scissors are 3.5”/9cm long (small) with a  high quality steel construction for strength and long-lasting performance. Sharp pointed with straight edge, perfect for embroidery, needlework or for keeping next to your sewing machine for snipping threads.

 

Originally these stork shaped scissors were clamps used by midwives to clamp umbilical cords.  The beaks were blunt and measured between 4-6 inches long and the head was tilted at a 45 degree angle.  Time spent waiting for the birth of the baby was spent hand sewing so the “clamps” were kept in the midwife’s embroidery basket.  Over the years the clamps have evolved into the scissors we use today.
