The Putter: Handcrafted Scissors
The Putter from shaun bloodworth on Vimeo. I just came across this beautiful video last night of a 'Putter' at Ernest Wright & Sons of Sheffield - one of the last hand manufactures of scissors - when Fleur shared a link for it on Twitter. It reminds me of the videos showing couture gowns being handmade but for some reason I find it so much more interesting and compelling to watch. It could be because I grew up watching The New Yankee Workshop and This Old House on the weekends (we never had cable and weren't really allowed much TV), but there's just something so satisfying about watching someone make a tool you use every day with the high level of care that this man does. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
