These beautiful small scissors are perfect for detailed cutting work such as quilting or embroidery.
The blades are created by Hasegawa Cutlery, a manufacturer of edged tools established in 1933 and located in Seki, Japan's foremost cutlery-making town. Blades are forged and hand-fitted by master craftsmen for a sharp edge and a smooth, hitch-free cutting experience.

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

With handles decorated by our partners at Ehara Lacquer Works of Nagoya, each set of scissors displays the elegance of traditional Buddhist lacquerware typically reserved for temples.

Smooth-fitting and easy to use, the warm lacquer handles are as functional as they are beautiful.
Red handles are finished with the Shunuri technique, which is used to produce a vibrant vermillion red, considered the color of celebration across Asia.

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. With proper maintenance they should last a lifetime.
