Hand-Forged Medieval Shears / Spring Scissors, Spring Steel

- Based on an original find in our possession (see last picture above). -

The hand-crafted spring shears we offer here are forged from one continuous piece of spring steel. The surface was left in its natural state to preserve its rustic, authentic character.
Although we have tested their function on paper and cardboard, these historical scissors have just slightly sharpened edges which may have to be re-ground to improve sharpness if needed.

Earliest evidence of the use of so-called spring scissors reaches as far back as the 15th c. BC in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. They continued to see service throughout the Roman period, the Viking Age and the Middle Ages, and were not fully superseded by the "modern" pivot scissors until the Renaissance. In terms of basic design and functionality, they remained virtually unchanged throughout their history.

This fine, sturdy blacksmithing piece is perfectly suited for camp life at medieval markets and re-enactment or living history events and will be a great prop for any medieval seamstress, herb woman, shepherd or barber surgeon.

Details:
- Material: hand-forged spring steel (not stainless)
- Overall length: approx. 18.5 cm
- Cutting edges: approx. 9.2 cm
- Max. width: approx. 3.3 cm
- Weight: approx. 50 g

Please note:
Above specs may slightly vary from piece to piece. As this is a hand-forged product, each piece is unique and slight variations in shape and/or surface finish are quite normal. Above pictures are thus for reference only.
The steel used here is not rust-proof and might show slight surface tarnishing in places. We recommend you to maintain the scissors on a regular basis, for example by using Ballistol Universal Oil, which is ideally suited for steel care.

This is an original ULFBERTH® product.
