Film Friday: The Putter

I’ve got a proper thing about scissors. According to my husband we already have too many pairs in our house, but I’m sorry I just can’t agree.

Ernest Wright & Sons are one of the last remaining hand manufacturers of scissors, and this beautifully shot short film by Shaun Bloodworth shows the skill and attention that goes into Putter (a putter-togetherer of scissors) Cliff Denton’s job.

 

 

I found this video via Tilly & The Buttons on Twitter, and I now love scissors all the more, of course, and will have to add a hand manufactured pair to my collection sharpish (pun intended).
