Joyce Chen Ultimate scissors. These scissors by Joyce Chen are amazing for cutting almost anything - it really is the Ultimate Scissor! Whether you’re using them to trim silver bezel wire, doing some light gardening, or preparing dinner - they are the perfect versatile tool!
Petra first used these scissors during a jewellery making class in the USA over 10 years ago, she fell in love and stocked up straight away. Since then her studio and kitchen (and greenhouse!) has never been without a pair of Joyce Chen Scissors.

Material: Chrome molybdenum stainless steel with rust-resistant, no stain finish. The unique Japanese alloy with a high carbon content in the steel is more than doubled compared to standard stainless scissors, but the Molybdenum and Vanadium content keeps the extreme hardness without it becoming brittle.
This original "Unlimited" scissor is used and recommended by professional chefs and food stylists. The patented short jaw increases force near the joint, which adds tremendous strength to the cut. These are not “just scissors”.
Size: 16cm L x 8.5cm W, 4cm blade length.
Still not convinced? Have a look at these two articles:
"I had heard from other metal smiths that these were great scissors for cutting metals. They are! Able to do cuts without serration marring like you get using Tin snips which saves me buffing time as well as giving me better precision. I'm spending much less time grinding and filing edges as well."
"Joyce Chen makes a wonderful utility scissor. I've had several pairs through the years and I got these to have as a spare pair. I am hard on them as I use them to cut thin metal sheet (silver, copper, brass) in my jewelry work. They always work like champs and seem to stay sharp much longer than others I've tried. They are light, easy to handle, and fit my hand well (unlike aviation-type shears that are heavy and cumbersome to use). They really do the job."
I’ve been coveting these for a long, long time and so was delighted to discover them here. They are great. So far used for trimming bezel wire down to height and for cutting keum boo gold foil
I adore these scissors, so far they have cut bezel wire cleanly and smoothly, they have also cut piped metal clay with no trouble at all. My partner is green with envy so I am going to have to buy him a pair as well as a pair for the kitchen.
