Scissors

Research has shown that per capita Native Households have more scissors in them than any other in Canada. And we all know that abusing Grandma’s special pair is a good way to get slapped. We Natives take our scissors VERY seriously!!

As Drum Makers we have spent 20 years researching scissors cuz we have cut lacing enough to strech from Kahnawake Qc. to Simpcw BC, jk. The Finnish company Fiskars have been making cutting tools for 360 years and we feel that they make the longest lasting, most economical sissors available. We have been working for a couple years to make the right connection with the right person in Fiskars so that we could offer their products to our clients. Over the years we have purchased every Fiskars scissor and have selected two that will serve our community best.

  • 8” Razor Sharp Scissors

    26$ Canadian

    These scissors are wonderfully designed to fit your hand.  When cutting rawhide lacing or strips of leather we can spend hours on a pair of scissors and an uncomfortable handle is the worst!!  A bad handle creates blisters, cramping of the hand and throwing of scissors.  But these sissors are just perfect. Wonderfully angled so that your hand will fit comfortable in the scissors for hours at a time. The edge is, as described “razor sharp” and stay sharps longer than any scissor we have worked with.
