Video: The Craft of Creating Handmade Scissors

Scissors are a simple tool. When the work, they work beautifully, doing exactly what you ask, as they've done since you learn how to work a pair in Kindergarten. Ernest Wright & Sons of Sheffield, England is one of the last remaining hand-manufacturer of scissors - high-quality shears crafted from the best materials and designed for a lifetime of use.    "The Putter" is a wordless look at Cliff Denton, a craftsman at the shop, and the process he take to create a stunning pair of scissors by hand. The film title comes from Denton's role - literally, a "scissor putter-togetherer."

I need to get a pair of these.
