Description:
The Tajika copper household scissors are a classic tool with sharp copper blades. Designed as everyday scissors, they are versatile and do not rust easily. Made from antique molds, these scissors have a vintage design with a forged copper finish, but cut like modern scissors with precise sharpness. Comfortable grip that can accommodate a left or right hand.

Variation:
All parts of these scissors are hand-made with antique molds. Each pair has its own unique shape and texture.

History: 
Tajika Haruo Ironworks, located in Ono city, is a 4th generation business producing handcrafted scissors and shears since the Showa period. Father and son, Takeo and Daisuke Tajika, forge, shape and sharpen each piece by hand – using techniques handed down for centuries. Tajika is one of the very few businesses in Japan still crafting scissors by hand. Each scissor is a masterpiece, perfected over many lifetimes.

Copper

Care Instructions:
Please wipe clean before use - these scissors are prelubricated before they are shipped from Japan. To prevent rust, thoroughly wipe scissors free of moisture after every use. You may need to lubricate occasionally if it becomes difficult to open the scissors. Copper patinas beautifully, expect and cherish the changes that will appear as your scissors age.
