processes. Shears and scissors made from low grade steel, which is
stamped, cast, or cold-forged Into shape, usually mean a less reliable

into the desired shape. This is an expensive process, but it is recognized
as the best method to produce quality tools.

properly is one of the most difficult to master, and it is this art that

The "run" is the "feel" you get when you cut with a pair of scissors or
shears. A "good run" gives you an even, clean cut for the full length of the
blade without hesitation or roughness. We fine tune the run for our shears and scissors
to give you the best performance and feel available.
