These hand-made carving scissors have a slight kink in them to enable you to cut sharp lines. Operate them with two hands and ensure one hand is pressing down on the top of the blade to simply guide the cutting as it passes along the edge of the line. The other hand does all the cutting action.
These scissors are based on rug carving scissors hand forged by master craftsmen in India and are traditionally made in solid iron. We don't sell the traditional ones anymore because we find these to be more compact and comfortable on your hands. They are an absolute weapon in any self respecting rug crafter's toolkit.
