Seeing scissors get made by hand is just so mesmerizing

You'll get lost watching him work. I definitely did. Cliff Denton is a 'putter' for Ernest Wright & Sons, the last remaining hand manufacturer of scissors there is, and he literally puts together scissors with his hands. He's a master at it. Watching him work is mesmerizing and satisfying to see. It's basically art.

I love the constant tinkering that he does after the blades are put together to make them feel perfect. The short film, called The Putter, was made by Shaun Bloodworth. Ernest Wright & Sons have been making scissors in Sheffield, England since 1902.

Great video of true craftspeople at work. It's a shame so many old school skills that this are dying out to factories.
