The medieval scissors in our range are expertly hand-forged and of high quality workmanship and are characterized by a really excellent sharpness, so that the work is easy to do.

In addition to the typical, small Viking spring scissors, you can also buy in our Medieval Shop detailed replicas of scissors from the Middle Ages, which are equipped with a joint and were also already used in the Viking Age.

In addition to authentic ironing scissors, which were used to shorten the thread when sewing, you will also find medieval herb scissors, which were once used by monks in monastery herb gardens to cut their medicinal herbs.

For more complex sewing work, you can buy small jointed scissors, which look good in any medieval camp and will be a great help when working with needle and thread because they are sharp and easy to use.
In addition to small sewing scissors, you will also find large fabric scissors and medieval-style tailor's scissors for cutting fabrics, which you should be able to use to master any form of fabric processing.

In this way, the scissors are not only always within reach, they are also protected from rust, dirt or damage and you cannot injure yourself on the sharp edges of the scissors.

Especially in the Viking Age, small spring scissors were an indispensable part of women's garb and were often attached to a brooch with a ribbon, so that women never had to search for their scissors for a long time.

That is why you can also buy such small leather sheaths for ironing scissors from us, which we offer in various sizes. In addition to simple leather scissor cases, you will also find high-quality sheaths with bronze fittings based on historical models from the Viking Age, which are a real eye-catcher on your garb.

Buy medieval scissorsAbout the historical development of the scissors


Roman-Scissors-buyScissors were already widely used by the ancient Romans and the Celts of the Latène period, but in fact scissors have been known since the Bronze Age, because they were of enormous importance for the craftsmanship of fabrics and bronze sheets early on.
With the end of the Bronze Age, of course, scissors were only made of iron because the material was so much better.

The first scissors, however, simply consisted of two knife blades joined together at the end. This type of scissors is called end-jointed scissors and had to be operated with both hands at the same time.

In later times, the scissors were made from one piece and fitted with a handle, which is why these scissors are called spring scissors.
The handle gives the scissors the necessary tension so that the scissors can be used with only one hand.

Buy medieval scissorsScissors in medieval and Viking times


Buy Viking scissors caseSpring scissors existed from antiquity through the Viking Age and the Middle Ages to modern times, and they were used in many different sizes and shapes.
There were tiny sewing scissors with which one could only cut a thread, scissors for hair care, handy sheep or cloth scissors, even monstrously large cloth scissors that could be up to a metre long - all these scissors were ironing scissors without any joint, only connected with an elastic bow.

The spring scissors have been in use for over 2000 years and their form has remained completely unchanged to this day. Of course, you can buy exactly such ironing scissors in our medieval online shop.

By the way: Contrary to the widespread prejudice, the Vikings attached great importance to a well-groomed appearance. Therefore, the scissors were an integral part of the costume of the women of the Viking Age and hung together with awl, ear spoon and tweezers from a brooch attached to the shoulders.

But even in the late Middle Ages, the scissors were seen as a female attribute and were often used symbolically in this context.

The joint scissors that are so widespread here today came into the light of day quite late and were actually in use only very sporadically before the 10th century. Nevertheless, jointed scissors can already be found in Viking archaeological finds, such as those from Birka and Novgorod.

In contrast to the ironing scissors, the jointed shears have two blades mounted around a pivot point, which makes it easier and more precise to work with. Also, in contrast to the ironing scissors, the articulated shears can be closed over the entire length of their cutting edge and do not stand open.

Maybe you enjoyed this little excursion about medieval scissors and you will find a suitable pair of scissors in our medieval mail order shop that you would like to buy to complement your authentic equipment.
