vintage (smile) … I actually have a small pair if shears that is similar to these … they were used by a friend who used to weave … for cutting the cords/yarn… he gave them to me as a present a long time ago … he used them in the early 70’s and they were old then too … (smile) …. of course any implement such as the shears you’re showing here can also be sinister in the wrong hands (grin lol ….) …. nice shot and a memory for me … thanks for sharing (big smile)
Ahhh so glad they brought back memories , i have some shots from that day of yarn & weaving machinery , fascinating how it used to be done:-)Many thanks for sharing:-)
Lovely treatment Jules. My brother in law is a crofter on the Isle of Lewis and he still uses shears like these on his sheep. He says they are far better than the modern electric shears!
These made me think of a Specsavers advert , where the crofter shears the sheepdog too , Should have gone to Specsavers LOL Thanks Colin:-)
Shear class photo! ah hem Love it! Like you said its amazing how different all our photos are, i do like this one though! :-)
Ouch lol Yes we all found different stuff , soon as i saw these i wanted the shot , wasnt sure how it would work :-) Thanks!!
