Scissors and Cutting
Scissors for every purpose
No home, office or classroom is complete without cutting tools. With a range of different scissors and cutters available, you’ll find the perfect solution for your purpose at WHSmith – be that cutting paper, fabric, tape, or anything in between.
General-purpose scissors are the handiest way to cut paper and card. Use them for everything from snipping documents to opening packaging and trimming wrapping paper at Christmas. Our selection of high-quality all-purpose scissors can also cut through thicker cardboard boxes, fabrics like cotton and leather, and twine or string.
For the utmost safety, children should always use junior scissors, which feature shorter, rounded blades that reduce the risk of injury. The smaller handles feel more comfortable in little hands, and they give children more control while learning to cut worksheets, papercrafts, and more.
Paper trimmers for accuracy
For straight and accurate lines, choose a paper trimmer. Comprised of a rounded blade mounted on a sliding track, rotary paper cutters couldn’t be easier to use. Just line up your paper and slide the blade across the board to get an instant clean cut. These work well for photo trimming, design work, or any other hobby projects.
Great trimmers can handle everything from printer paper to thicker card, and some of our options can even handle multiple sheets at once. The built-in guides show the user exactly where to line up their pages to get accurate, even cuts every time. The sharp blades ensure a clean, burr-free edge – perfect for that professional look.
