Vetty Creations office partial closure: I have been unwell since mid November 2023. Orders are going out, though may be delayed when I'm having a really bad day/days. I respond to enquiries when I am able to. I apologise for this. It’s not what I want either.

3.5 inch / 9cm Dovo Hardanger scissors

Dovo 3.5 inch / 9cm Hardanger scissors with leather sheath. Made from hot-forged stainless steel by Dovo Solingen in Germany.

I recommend these scissors as the ultimate scissors for cutwork embroidery such as Hardanger, Portuguese whitework, drawn thread work, merezhka and Schwalm embroidery. They have very fine, sharp blades which makes them ideal for slipping between fabric threads and making a neat, careful cut. You can read more about my criteria for the ideal scissors for these sorts of embroidery in a post on my blog, White Threads.

Dovo Hardanger scissors are recommended by Hardanger stitchers around the world. Ask on any Hardanger forum what the best scissors are for Hardanger, and these scissors are consistently recommended. They are a "cut above" any other scissors I have ever used for cutwork.

These sharp embroidery scissors have have a blade point angle of approximately 10 degrees, measure 2mm width across both blades 8mm up the length of the blade, and have very pointy blade points.
