Hand-forged scissors

By 1543, when the first Tanebasami scissors were forged, sword-makers on the Japanese island of Tanegashima had been crafting precious ‘jewel steel’ into superlative blades for four hundred years and more. 

The tradition continues today - Tanegashima’s edge-tools are renowned for their beauty, utility and craftsmanship.

Our Tanebasami (Tanegashima 'hasami', or scissors) look beautiful. They feel beautiful. They offer a cutting sense you won't have experienced before - the contrast between factory-fabricated stainless steel and a hand-forged blade in hardened high-carbon steel really is quite something.
