The first tailor’s scissors imported to Japan during early Meiji period were re-designed for Japanese, and became RAXA scissors which became the prototype for the modern tailor’s scissors.
This Hasami Masamune tailor’s scissors are forged from Shirogami White paper #2 which allows the blade to maintain its cutting edge for a long time.
The blade hand finished by the blacksmith guarantees a superior cutting edge that can be experienced when cutting fabric.
Shirogami White #2 steel is made up of
Carbon: 1.05 E1.15%, Manganese: .20 - .30%, Phosphorus: .025%, Sulfur: .004%, Silicon: .10 - .20%
Almost identical to Shiro-ko this alloy has a slightly lower Carbon content.
This is very popular steel for high end Japanese cutlery.
