Japanese stainless steel Samurai Scissors are both useful and a work of artistic tradition and craftsmanship.

Exquisitely designed for both the left and right hand by Samurai sword artisans from the Gifu prefecture in Japan.

Using traditional methods used in sword making these scissors are meant to be used, not just admired for their beauty and craftsmanship. The mat black has a fluorine coating. Both come in a simple and perfectly designed box and make a gift like no other.
