Classic Workmasters



Available for immediate dispatch
The William Whiteley Classic Workmasters are a made of tough stuff, as you would expect. Featuring short blades and long handles, they provide a 2:1 mechanical advantage thanks to their excellent leverage. Ideal for endless applications in DIY, they are capable of cutting through anything up to thin sheet metal, they certainly won’t let you down when you’re looking for that shorter cut for a wide range of purposes.


Ideal for professionals and serious technical crafters alike. The rear blade is finely serrated to enable the scissor to grip all materials more securely. They are fully chrome-plated to provide longevity against general wear and tear.


Used by BBC’s Simion Hawtin-Smith and Channel 4’s Ollie Clueit, they make a perfect partner in the workshop and can be used daily without any fear of letting you down.


Handmade by a team of skilled craftsman, they will arrive packaged in a signature Whiteley gift box to make a treat for yourself or an ideal gift for the DIYer in your life.
