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 Aogami Blue #1 Steel 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.
Blue #1 steel is called Aogami (means blue paper) in Japan.
The steel has been wrapped in blue colored paper for decades and this is why it's called blue.
Hitachi high carbon steel(C 1.3%-1.4%), very pure(P <= 0.025%, S <= 0.004%) specifically developed for tools and knives.
Very popular choice for high end Japanese kitchen knives. A lot of Japanese custom makers use it.
Takes patina easily, but just wiping it clean during cutting and washing after using it, prevents rust completely.
