The name bestowed upon these scissors heralds nothing but the truth. These gorgeous Ornate Workhorse scissors are for the true maker at heart. The blade is incredibly sharp and they have a heavier weight to them, making them handy for both snipping threads and cutting through fabric. Gorgeous and functional, these have to be one of the nicest pairs of scissors on the site. These scissors measure 7" from tip to top, so they are much larger than the norm. Just stunning!
