You may have seen these funny looking scissors before and wondered what they’re used for. Trust us when we say duckbill applique scissors are a must in any well-provisioned sewing kit. Whenever you are required to grade seams (which means trimming seams down in successive layers so you don’t see the outline from the outside of the garment), applique scissors get the job done perfectly. The curved, duckbill shape of the lower blade protects the lower seam as you cut, allowing you to trim the top seam evenly and ensuring you don’t accidentally cut both layers at the same time. We use ours almost every time we sew, especially for tailoring.

From our studio in beautiful Montreal, Canada, we are delighted to ship to makers worldwide. For US & Canadian customers, shipping is free on orders over $150. We are committed to investing in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of shipping.

After you've been notified, average shipping times for the US + Canada is 3-7 business days. International shipments may take anywhere from 12-40 days depending on your location. International customers may be charged VAT depending on their location. Customs and duties on international shipments are the responsibility of the customer.

I had long heard about Duckbill scissors and finally decided to try them when Core Fabrics added them to their inventory. They are fabulous! They take the work and the potential slippage out of grading seams. I heartily recommend adding a pair of these to your scissor inventory.

Really, what took me so long?

Perhaps I'm a weirdo but I really like flat-felling seams, and I can't believe it took me this long to get some duckbill scissors. They really make the trimming job much easier, and these are a pleasure to use. They feel hefty in that good-quality way. I believe they are knife-edge, so I should be able to sharpen them.
