    Beautiful sharp scissors 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 are handcrafted. The final steps of edge sharpening is a two-step process called "Koba-biki" which requires the experienced skills of the artisan. Since the blade are delicately finished with a tapered tip, it is easy to use for detailed work of sewing and handicraft.
