At its peak, in the mid-19th century, there were more than 100 companies in Sheffield producing scissors in hundreds of shapes and sizes. Thanks to National Lottery players this new exhibition, also supported by Ernest Wright Ltd, one of the two remaining Sheffield scissor makers, explains the process and charts the history of fine scissor-making in Sheffield.
