The disappearing art of making scissors by hand

"Ernest Wright and Son Ltd may be the last factory in Britain still making scissors by hand. Earlier this year it looked as though they too might be about to close.
But then a video by photographer Shaun Bloodworth showing how the scissors are made went viral. Orders immediately went up, with a flood of requests from the US.
Eric Stones, one of the two "Master Puttertogetherers" at the factory, spoke to BBC News about his disappearing craft."
