Renowned German engineering has its limits. Top-notch CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines, grinders, high-tech mold making machines and robots will never be able to fully replace human hands. Our most valuable assets are the true artisans who learned the trade traditionally, from their fathers. Our modern machinery helps with initial shaping, but then each and every piece goes through many traditional manual steps on its way to becoming a life lasting, precision tool.

People are often surprised to learn that every single pair of our scissors is assembled by hand and every single screw is set with a screwdriver to ensure proper tension. Scissor blades are adjusted with a small hammer for precise shearing cuts. Every nipper is assembled by hand and sharpened with a file - not a grinder. Highly skilled handwork is required to make our products functionally superior and life lasting. We do not want to be in the business of selling replacements, so mass-production is simply not an option.

In life, when it is time to make a decision people usually know the right path, but often choose the easier route. It's the same in business. We know faster ways to produce our products, but not without sacrificing quality and critical functions. We also know there are cheaper production methods, but those methods do not come without environmental and societal repercussions. We chose a path that may not be as easy or profitable as it could be, but we believe it is the right path for us.
