These handmade scissors have been produced in Sheffield, England, for over 100 years. But compared to a $2 mass-produced pair, the kitchen scissors will cost you over $100, and a pair of professional tailor's shears cost $315. So just what is it that makes them so expensive?

      amertpkamertpkPrieš 12 dienų
    • @amertpk It's expensive because the process of making it is by hand and human labor is expensive. It also ads a bit maybe nowadays the hipster syndrome of owning something like that, "authentic". And of course the part that making something by hand it also results in a smaller supply which adds to the price. But in no way all of this supports the idea that a hand made product is better than something made in a factory. It all depends on the standards used. Way too many times it happens that factory products are even better than hand mane ones. like they said in the clip "curve hammered to perfection" which is obviously a lie as that's impossible. Not to mention that machines are better than people at being consistent. But if some hand made products are better they are not by much better and factory products are still better when you factor in price and quality. The only benefit to have something hand made is that it may be tailored for you, customized. Which is obviously not the case here either. Something that's more expensive for a factory to change their production lines specially for you so has no sense in doing that. So we circle back to the hipster stuff i said in the beginning because you don't buy a tool to have it and boast, you get it to use it. There is no need in buying a tool that is barely better than other and pay as much for one that you would for many others. The difference in skill you would need to have in order to produce same results using those slightly different tools is so small that you surely would chose the cheaper one as everything breaks if used for long enough. As for the tailored tool, no one really makes tools for you if you need something customized, you do it yourself. That's how tools were and are invented. Specialists finding issues that no one else can really find them and imagine a solution. So really, if you need a tailored tool, you do it yourself. There is a good reason after all for why those many shops and masters disappeared, we evolve and now there are better ways.

  • My immediate question- are they fabric shears? Cos I know so many people happily pay a lot of money for good fabric shears. And in the end, it works out- a really good pair can be sharpened and used for a decade or more. A cheaper pair wears out the n a year or two, depending on how often you use them. Still, I wouldn’t pay $300 for a pair. $100, sure. Not $300.

  • thank god people like him that are doing it hand made cause machines made ALWAYS make an error on them and will only last very short time, while hand made made the chance of getting a problem like crack is damn rare cause of the metal itself and not the craftman that cant see it cause they are impossible to see with human eyes, like my old kitchen drill still works even when i got from my mom and her mom also had it, it is over 140 years old and i still can make whipped cream with it, if it was machine made that thing would die after a month

    • How do you figure? That's not a big market either and probably there are more people making those. A scissor is more difficult to make than a knife hence less competition too. Why not bet on what they know and change focus towards a craft that they do not know that much?
