I don’t typically blog about scissors but I have to admit, the photos below of the Joseph Rogers Exhibition Scissors are pretty unique to the cutlery industry. (Now, I have to admit I did pick up an old Keen Kutter 10″ Shears several years ago at a gun show.) They’re big, heavy duty and cut like crazy. So I do find scissors can be interesting.
However, the photos of the Joseph Rogers scissors are in a totally different class. The following photo’s were sent to me by an individual that enjoys all things sharp
“Joseph Rodgers Sheffield England Exhibition Scissor. Currently don’t know where it resides. …… The close up of the handles is the back. The handles were cut out by hand, filed, burnished and hand engraved. Finally a gold plate. They are steel handles, not cast. Forged scissor and hand ground. I do not remember age, but they are and antique. Also not sure on dimensions. “
I always enjoy sharing ‘oddities’ like this and found these to be about as odd as you will find! Should anyone have any info regarding where these currently reside or any other info please share.
