Special Left Handed Scissors So Your Fave Lefty Can Get That Cut Right

Sep 14, 2008
Once upon a time being left handed was frowned upon which made living with it all the more hard. According to Richard Cussons: "Aside from past ridicule of society, lefties also face many other struggles when it comes to using scissors, knives, cameras, tools, watches, etc. Every one of these objects needs the complete opposite design in order to accommodate the needs of a lefty."

However today society has become far more accepting with left-handed people as the figures of those who are born with it are higher than it has ever been before. Even so being a lefty can still put someone at a disadvantage; Cussons adds: "Being left handed can sometimes be a drag. This is because almost all hand-held devices, such as tools, have been designed with a right-handed individual in mind. This is because everything has been created to accommodate a right-handed society. In fact, most right-handed people don't even recognize that things have been made specifically for them."

But many establishments like salon and beauty supply stores along with special manufacturers have now turned their attention into creating, using, and marketing products that are specifically for those who are left-handed; one such company that advocates the needs of correct spa supplies and salon products for lefties in Anything Left Handed which shares a variety of products, chief among them left-handed scissors. According to their website:

When a left-hander uses right-handed scissors, they have to push the thumb and index finger together in an unnatural way to make the scissors cut, causing marks on the hand and, eventually, callouses. Also, they have to look over the top blade, which obscures the cutting line.

With properly designed left-handed scissors these problems do not arise, as your natural cutting action matches that of the scissors. Just hold the scissors straight and naturally and do not try to twist the blades. After a short time, you will be completely comfortable with your new scissors and wonder how you put up with misusing right-handed scissors for so long! All our scissors are fully left-handed with blades reversed and left hand moulded grips.

Some of the products that could appeal to lefties include the following:

General Purpose Scissors

These scissors are suitable for a wide variety of tasks including cutting paper, card and thin material. Choose from scissors with plastic moulded handles or traditional all stainless steel models.

Childrens Scissors

All our children's scissors have rounded blade tips for safety. They are perfect for cutting paper, card and thin material. NOTE: Young children should always be supervised when using scissors.

Manicure Scissors & Sets

We only include the finest scissors in our manicure range, produced from top quality stainless steel and hand finished to ensure precision and comfort. Fully left-handed.

Finally the lefty Cussons stresses:

Therefore, if you use your left hand over your right, or your child does, this is quite natural, and shouldn't be something for you to worry about. Just make sure that you provide your child with all of the help they need to make the most of their abilities. Remember, there is nothing wrong about being left handed, event though it can sometimes prove to be difficult in a world with a predominant right handed population.

Finally, there are now many gadgets and everyday items (like left handed scissors) which can also make you life easier and make ideal gifts.
