I spend about 4 hours of my working day cutting Little pieces of paper. Most of these pieces are tiny and intricate and I am known as a fussy cutter. I have no trouble cutting complicated shapes from books or magazines. But when it comes to cutting a squareOr a straight line I am lost. But then I found your long scissors and it’s like magic I can now cut anything and cut it straight with ease. I jI just bought my second pair. I can’t imagine not having a pair within reach at all times.

Love my new scissors

I’m outfitting my writing space with Galen Brass accessories. My next order will include the brass perpetual calendar and Vintage inspired Brass Combine tool - protractor. I also have several wooden accessories. The items are beautiful to look at, perfectly functional and we’ll appoint my desk work and writing space. Service and quality are excellent.

Best scissors i’ve ever used

First of all, I wanted scissors that look different than regular “kitchen” scissors. I found them! And how they cutting things, I’m amazed every time I use them. Worth every euro and even more

Great looking scissors

Went for these for the hope that these will not ruin when cutting tape or sticker paper due to the coating. Hope it holds up. Hard to find in stock in the UK so was an impulsive add on to my order.

Georgeous scissors! Cut well.

Love these scissors. They cut well and are well made. I reach for them all the time instead of some of the others I own. I want the long black handled pair by this brand as well and have it on my wish list.
