We set out to create an authentic brass collection based on vintage favorites, and we knew we didn’t want the “finish” or lightweight alloy that many encouraged us to pursue. We wanted the weight in the hand… the substance, durability, and warm burnished patina that develops over time. Our metalsmiths use solid, sand-cast, unlacquered brass, with all of the subtleties and wabi-sabi imperfections inherent to the process.
Every household should be outfitted with a pair of these archetypal Tailoring Shears, guaranteed to provide years of steadfast use in tasks both domestic and professional. Handmade by master scissor-smiths of solid brass and iron, they are inscribed with the word “Maker” on the front and the Sir/Madam mark on the back. The standard pair is a capable 8,” while the grand pair makes a statement at a full 12”. Each comes boxed for safekeeping.
