We do enjoy a bit of well-made stationary and this fine set of scissors fits neatly into this category. Made by the Parveen family in India for Rupalee (a fairtrade situation), available in three models, ‘Thread,’ ‘Utility’ and ‘Barber,’ the combination of sand-cast brass handles and hand-forged, tempered steel blade make for a sturdy, long-lasting pair. Hand-ground blades mean these don’t just look good but cut with precision, tough blades that can be periodically sharpened. What a looker. Find all three models at The Shopkeepers Store.
