Thread Scissors for Leather Working

Thread scissors will most likely be helpful if you’re hand-sewing or machine-sewing a fair amount of your leather work. They are usually small, only a few inches long, with small, very sharp blades.

Their size allows them to get into tough-to-reach places and angles, whose sharpness will shear the thread leaving a crisp end without frays. Thread scissors can also help during edging and finishing if you need to trim any extra-long fibers that come up on the leather’s edge after a cut.
