No hemp person, smoking black cashmere is actually better than hemp…

I bought hemp cloth - Chinese grown, in the late 90's. Made a couple of pairs of zipper shorts with them. They were extemely comfortable. Very soft and durable. It is a dreadful shame on Dupont for ridding us of this cloth.

And, indeed Hutch when they finally wore out I smoked them.


Nah, not really. ;p

Hutch, they look amazing! You could effortlessly cut off three pairs of denims in a single go with those!

Cheers, Hendrick

I just ordered a pair, will let you know but frankly this look too good to be true.

I personally love my Sheffield made Ernest Wright shears, but I shamefully admit that I prefer the 10" to the 12"...

In other news, I bought a pair of "Sharpist" scissors in fashionable matte black to fine cut jersey and I must admit that these are fantastic, so if you are looking at something light and handleable, I can truly reccomend them…


I am in no way commercially attached to the companies mentioned above!


Cheers, Hendrick

I just found this forum - I loved reading the Cutter and Tailor Forum.  I am a home sewer in Seattle, Washington.  I learned the basics of sewing from my mother but did not really get into it until much later.  I am a retired actuary, and sewing is my passion.  I have mostly done historical sewing for myself, medieval through 1960s.  I like to learn and use historical and couture methods - I find them fascinating.  I am in awe of what tailors do.  I am currently taking my second online class with Rory Duffy, who is fantastic.  I love learning about tailoring and want to do it well.

Certainly tempting at that price...

There are actually 2 films

You can find them at URL https://guggenhein.com/home

They are cheap enough to buy a pair to see what they work like. At 9 inches, they are really trimmers and I have seen the identical pattern from other places.

Its unfortunate but C&T is like a boat let lose in the sea with no-one at the helm. There was a lot of good stuff there long ago but neglect has destroyed much of it.
