Product Description

Traditional Japanese craft and fabric scissors.
Beautifully presented paulownia gift box.
Hand-forged on Tanegashima Island.

7.5 sun tanebasami (22.7cm total length) are sewing scissors, perfect for fabrics and pattern-cutting. In years past they were commonly used when sewing kimonos, which requires long, straight pattern cuts. They have a timeless design and they cut all fabrics wonderfully well. 

5-sun (15.15cm) tanebasami are ideal for tasks requiring precise cutting. At under 60 grams they are light and nimble in the hand and they cut very accurately. Perfect for patchwork, papercrafts, book-binding and repairs and many other creative pastimes.

Paulownia is a light, sustainable wood often used presentation boxes in Japan. It has a lovely grain and ages very nicely. Tanebasami gift boxes are heirloom quality and are printed with the Japanese kanji characters for 'hontanebasami', meaning 'genuine Tanegashima scissors'.

Box dimensions: 285mm x 195mm x 40mm.

Shipping weight: 750 grams.
Shipping: Free worldwide shipping. 

We regret that we are unable to ship this product to addresses in Australia, due to strict quarantine restrictions relating to the wooden box.

    Hi Michael.

    Today i recieved the last parcel from you which was actually the first one you send, but the customs wanted a closer look at it.

    I must say i am over the moon about my new scissors, they are just so amazing, and the clothes and pouches you have send, just make the hole thing perfect.

    I will at any time recomend you to anybody i know.

    Thank you so much for a super and perfect service.

    I have now tried the scissors properly and i must agree they just cut like a dream, i will give them the highest amount of stars that is possible.

    IT is like no other scissor, it is jus pure perfection.
