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