Paris scissors are tailor's scisors with two pointed blades. When the blades are bevelled, they are known as "camard".
Length: 25cm. Weight: 439g.
These scissors have a flange which serves to brake the handles. The screw which holds the two blades together is extremely long, enabling you to pick up the scissors with one hand. These scissors are presented in a strong canvas pouch for protection. A Sajou label is sewn on the front and the pouch is closed by a drawstring.
As with all quality scissors, these have traces of pairing: before dipping the steel, the blades are perfectly adjusted a first time to "make a pair". They are marked, generally by a number, as being two parts of a precise pair of scissors. They are then separated before dipping, which gives them their hardness, reassembled and readjusted. The pairing marks are placed on the scissors hinge so cannot be seen when they are closed.
These scissors of an exceptional quality are veritable professional tools used in sewing shops and the textile trade. Essential if you cut a lot of fabric.
