Gingher shears work very nicely. Just don't cut anything but fabric with them.

Hi All,

After doing a bit of research for myself I have come across a couple of companies in my search for quality Tailor's Shears, which I will list below. Surprisingly, this information was ridiculously hard to find and I hope it's still relevant to you guys.:

William Whitely and Sons - Pretty much invented modern scissors and shears and is recognised for it. - This is who I'll be purchasing mine from anyway.

Merchant and Mills - Other quality scissors and shears.

Hope this helps :)

Never thought this thread would be resurrected, but I'm glad it has been.
