The best little snippers from Japan! Traditionally used for cutting fabric, these scissors are handmade from a single rod of high carbon “Ao-hagane” blue steel. Not to be used to cut metal or wood. These are extremely sharp and unable to be mass produced due to the level of craftsmanship.
Come from a Japanese factory that started in 1744 producing straigth rasors. It now manufactures a variety of products including utility knives, Japanese gripping shears used for cutting thread, pruning shears, and floral shears. Each piece is painstakingly made by hand by skilled craftsmen using the same techniques that have been employed for generations.
