Tajika Herb Scissors

Description:
Besides featuring a beautiful texture and finish, these small herb scissors were designed as the perfect tool for an herb garden. Their cutting motion is effortless and requires very little pressure, while the sharp thin blades makes it easy to cut herbs and keep the plant healthy afterwards.
Made from antique molds, these scissors have a vintage design with a forged steel 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.

 

Measurement:
5" x 1"

Materials: 
Iron (scissors), plastic (sheath)

Care Instructions:
To prevent rust, thoroughly wipe scissors free of moisture after every use. Place herb scissors in plastic sheath after use to maintain sharpness. Iron matures beautifully, expect and cherish the changes that will appear as your scissors age.
