A bookbinder works with paper, bookcloth and sometimes leather to mend or create cherished books. Perfecting each component requires a cutting technique that is at once crisp, decisive and careful.

Ernest Wright designed the 11″ Bookbinder Scissors to meet the particular requirements of the bookbinder’s craft. The blades are long, straight, and enduringly sharp thanks to their carbon steel composition. Crucially, their cutting length exceeds the height and width of most books – so they can cut the materials in one or two actions.

Whereas some craftspeople, such as embroiderers and quilters, require scissors with a sharp point, in bookbinding a pointy tip brings the risk of removing slightly too much material. To help bookbinders cut with perfect accuracy – especially around the tricky corners of bookcloth and paper pieces – we’ve ground a flat, soft-edged point onto the 11″ Bookbinder Scissors.

The 11″  Bookbinder Scissors have been adapted from a 1980s pattern of Paperhanger Scissors, which is also part of the Ernest Wright range. While the Bookbinder Scissors were custom-made for bookbinding, they are also suitable for some other crafts where precision is paramount, such as collage-making.
