LDH Traditional Fabric Shears were one of our first products when the company was founded in 1990. They are handcrafted from carbon steel and hollow ground to ensure precise cuts.
Our Traditional Fabric Shears are handcrafted from industrial-grade high carbon steel.
They can cut through multiple layers of fabric, leather, vinyl, denim, Kevlar, and other heavy materials. They're fantastic for sewing, tailoring, quilting, dressmaking, cutting patterns, and alterations.
They are available in sizes ranging from 8" to 12". They're comfortable to use with varying grip size to accommodate all hand sizes.
*These shears are right-handed. *
What does the size indicate?
The measurement you see (such as 8") is the entire length of the scissor, including the handle.
Which size should I get?
Choosing a size depends on a number of factors, including hand and finger size, the intended use of the scissors, and the strength of your hand and wrist. If you are doing any detail work, choose a smaller size, such as an 8" or 9". If you are cutting long swathes of fabric or batting, a larger scissors, such as 11" or 12", would be suitable.
Depending on the size of your hand you will be able to open the scissors to varying degrees; a smaller hand with shorter fingers will get more leverage from a larger scissors, such as 10", because you will not be stretching your hand open as much as you would have to with a smaller scissors.
If you are struggling to find the right size, we suggest choosing a 9" or 10" scissor.
