The Art of the Cutler

Hi Everyone,

Ever wonder how scissors are made?

In the UK, in Sheffield, they've kept the craft and art of scissor making or cutlery, alive. At Ernest Wright and Sons, they still make fine crafted scissors by hand and they make them to last 100 years.  Compare that to mass produced scissors that are not going to last anywhere near that long. Here is a really cool video that was shot at their factory:

They are making a real effort to keep craft alive and we should be doing the same thing here.
