These sharp scissors are made in Seki City, Gifu Prefecture, one of the most famous cutlery cities in Japan. The handles are decorated with lacquer and gold Makie, which give the scissors a noble luster. A silk tassel with glittering gold thread is attached.

You can enjoy the subtle changes in colour that only natural lacquer can bring, and as the years go by, the beautiful luster will appear. The smooth texture unique to urushi lacquer fits comfortably in your hand.

Each pair of small scissors is handcrafted by a craftsman to adjust the engagement of the blades in order to achieve a sharp cutting edge. The final steps of the finishing process - "Koba-biki" and "Tip Shaving" - require the senses and experienced skills of the artisan.

Since the blades are delicately finished in with tapered tip, it is easy to use for detailed work of sewing and handicraft.

Each set of scissors comes in a leather case with a gilt tassel, protected by a cloth wrapping. The cloth can be used as a cleaning cloth for the lacquered handles.

Handling Precautions:

  • Please handle with care as the cutting edge is sharp.
  • If the scissors get wet, wipe them off to prevent rust.
  • If you forcibly cut a hard object, the blade will not mesh properly and it may damage the blade.
  • Dropping or giving a shock may cause damage.
  • Please store in the case after use.
  • Since the case is made of genuine leather, it may expand and contract slightly. If it gets wet with water or sweat, it may cause discolouration stains.
  • If you are concerned about grease or fingerprints, gently wipe it off with the included cleaner cloth.
  • Avoid storing in hot, humid and direct sunlight as lacquer may discolour.
  • Do not polish with a coarse cloth or abrasive as it may cause scratches.
  • Lacquer may get irritated depending on your constitution. If you feel any abnormality, discontinue use and consult a doctor.
  • Keep out of reach of infants.
