Dovo Solingen Embroidery Scissors at I Have A Notion

These beauties just arrived from Germany.  I first learned about Dovo Scissors while at Quilt Market.  I was so impressed with the quality.  I have since learned that very few shops carry them.  They make really lovely gifts for yourself or a very special friend. 

These are 3 1/2 inch Embroidery Scissors ($51.50).  I really liked these because I could cut out a tiny check out of a piece of fabric by just pointing the tips into the fabric and snipping.  No kidding...

Here you can see I poke the tip into the tiny square.

I begin to clip just to the corner....very easy to do because of the fine points.

See this tiny hole I cut out right in the center?  Impressive isn't it?

This was one of my first pair of Dovo.  I loved these because of the extra fine pointed and curved tips.  I can unsew almost anything with these little babies. I also like that they are curved so I can clip my punchneedle threads close up without clipping into any of my other threads.  This pair is $59.50.

See how fine these tips are?  I'm telling you they are incredible.

"Diligent skilled workers craft the steel masterpieces with meticulous precision and with great craftsmanship.

With their specialised expertise that has been handed down over generations, they all face the challenge of exceeding the already high standards of the Solingen ordinance.

DOVO's heavy demands on a high quality, in terms of functionality and design, continue to convince our demanding customers worldwide."

I only have 4 pair of the Embroidery Scissors and 2 pair of the Curved Fine Tip Scissors.  I have sold the others that I ordered prior to ordering.  So if you think you would like a pair please let me know immediately.  If there are other Dovo Scissors you are interested in purchasing please e-mail me at and let me know which ones they are.  I will include them in my next order.

Expensive?  Yes....worth the money....YES.  I would not spend my money on things like this if they were not wonderful!!!

  1. I'd love to have Santa bring me these for Christmas!

    Given your recommendation for tweasers (which I love), I'm sure these scissors are wonderful too!
