Left Or Right-Handed Shears, What To Choose?

Left or right-handed shears, what to choose?

When it comes to choosing between left or right-handed shears, it's important to consider your dominant hand. If you are right-handed, you should choose right-handed shears, and if you are left-handed, you should choose left-handed shears.

The reason for this is that the blades on shears are designed to be held in a specific hand, with the thumb in the smaller hole and the fingers in the larger hole. If you use shears that are designed for the opposite hand, it can be difficult to achieve proper control and accuracy when cutting, which can result in uneven or jagged cuts.

Using shears that are designed for your dominant hand can make cutting easier, more efficient, and more comfortable, as the blades and handle will be optimised for your grip and cutting motion. This is especially important if you plan on using your shears for extended periods of time, as using the wrong hand can cause fatigue and discomfort.

So, if you're right-handed, choose right-handed shears, and if you're left-handed, choose left-handed shears. It's a simple choice, but one that can make a big difference in the quality of your cuts and your overall experience using the shears.
