Tailors Shears at Time of the Guild

David Gensler, an inner-member of the MGRT research community, drew the groups attention to material related to the development and production of Tailors' Shears at the turn of the century.


This history refers specifally to the work of J. Wiss & Sons Co in the New World roughly at the time of the Guild's formation. Noteworthy the role of both craftsmanship and invention which contributed to the progression of the cutler's trade. Artisan inventors brave enough to try running machinery powered by a Saint Bernard walking in a gerbil's tread-wheel and committed enough to quality to improve the performance of their products at every stage.
