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.
