The Kid Should See This

The Putter and the art of putting together scissors

Watch more with these video collections:

Cliff Denton is “The Putter,” or more specifically he’s a “a putter-togetherer of scissors.” As the modern world has moved toward machine-made goods, Denton and his unique skills are working diligently at Ernest Wright & Sons of Sheffield, the last remaining hand manufacturer of scissors. Filmmaker Shaun Bloodworth captures the story of how these household tools are put together and perfected in this beautiful, wordless short.

We love watching how things are made. In the archives, more quiet storytelling: turning scraps into soccer balls for village kids, making a zoetrope bowl, cutting and bottling honey, and how Kokeshi Dolls are made.
