These special metal thread cutting scissors from Bohin were made especially for Access Commodities on my request. Metal thread scissors are very hard to find, yet very useful. Metal threads are notoriously hard on scissors, both dulling them out and being difficult to cut. The edges of the cutting blades are serrated very finely to grip the metal of gold threads and silk wrapped purls to keep them in place for the cutting blade. The edges are hardened steel to be able to cut the metals over and over again. The test pair was used at Access Commodities to cut all the silk wrapped purls that were packaged for the Cabinet of Curiosities - several thousand cuts! The scissors performed magnificently making clean cuts on silk wrapped purls.
The blade length on these scissors are 2" long and the handles have been coated red so you will remember that they are special for metals. The entire scissors are 5 1/2" long.
