Our Josaku Tailor's Scissors are the world's finest. They were awarded the highest prize by the Brother Sewing Machine Company. Following in the footsteps of previous generations, the maker meticulously hand forges a special blue steel Aogami Hagane to form the inlaid cutting edge. Each pair of scissors is then hand finished and carefully adjusted for a silky smooth cut. Over 100 steps are required to complete each pair of Josaku scissors, and production is limited to a few pair per day. They come with a large, heavy chrome plated steel pivot screw to ensure a lifetime of smooth, chatter free use. The well proportioned handles are tapered to fit the hand.. The razor sharp edges guarantee a clean, tear free cut. Each Josaku Scissors comes in an attractive gift box. Overall length: 11½˝ Blade Length: 6½˝.
