Ernest Wright and Son Limited is a family company hand-making fine scissors and shears in Sheffield since 1902. — Some of their products include household, kitchen, garden, leisure and ceremonial ribbon-cutting scissors applications, which are made using traditional skills passed down from generation to generation.
The company currently has three skilled craftsmen with years of experience in the cutlery trade. They are past retirement age but have stayed on because there are no new apprentices to take on their skills.

The management of the company is Philip and Nick Wright.
