Made under the guidance of expert artisans from Seki—a Japanese town famous for its high-quality blades and cutlery—these high-quality scissors provide an exceptionally easy and comfortable cutting experience. They feature a double-bevelled edge, providing an excellent combination of sharpness and durability. Their distinctive curved upper blade also serves an important function, letting you cut more cleanly and with less force. Because the curved edge is longer than the straight edge, it pulls along the surface of what you're cutting, creating a slicing action in addition to the standard shearing action of conventional scissors. ("Hikigiri" is a Japanese term meaning "cutting while pulling.")
The scissors' tapered ends and sleek design make them easy to maneuver, and the soft resin lining of the finger holes keeps them comfortable to use for long cutting sessions.
These scissors also feature a fluorine coating, which keeps sticky residue from getting on the blades when cutting through tape.
