I love the unusual rose gold colour to these cute stork shaped scissors. The pair of scissor measure 11.5cm/4.5". Ideal size for embroidery/needlework. Stainless steel for strength and long lasting performance and sharp pointed ideal for embroidery, hand needlework or to be kept 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.

By purchasing these scissors you are agreeing that you are over 18 years of age.
