Paula writes: "In May, we once again went to England and this time we stayed in Kent. We visited a number of castles, one of them being Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII of course spent time here. There were carved Tudor Roses everywhere and I was already working on these scissors, so I felt the name was apt. These scissors are 3.75" long and the tip of the blades are very pointed. The blades are extremely sharp and the scissors look like antique silver."
