Description:
Ideal for trimming and shearing the most complicated of arrangements - the hand forged large iron handles of Tajika's flower scissors fit perfectly in the hand. The hand sharpened blades can cut through thick sturdy branches while maintaining delicate precision. Can also be used for household tasks. Made from antique molds, these scissors have a vintage design with a forged steel finish, but are cut like modern scissors with thick blades and beveled edges. 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.
