For years I’ve used these garden shears to arrange flowers. They are comfortable to use, are of the highest quality and look good to boot. They are made in Sheffield, England by William Whiteley & Sons who have been designing and manufacturing beautifully hand-crafted industrial scissors for 258 years. Founded in 1760 and granted a Royal Warrant in 1840, today Whiteley’s is still a family-run firm. Many of their craftsmen’s skills have been handed down through generations, honed to the world-renowned standard they achieve today.
