Craft Scissors (220mm)
Western style 220mm TAKEJISAKU craft scissors for cutting fabric, leather, craft use and/or general sewing tasks which require a light and manoeuvrable pair of scissors and sharp blade. Usually when scissor blades are shortened, the handle is also made smaller, but in this case the large size handle is kept to allow for very detailed work.
The scissors come with a small pot of grease for maintenance and to ensure a sustained smooth cutting action.
- Blade Length: 220 mm
- Blade Steel: White Paper Steel #1 with soft iron handles
TAKEJISAKU is the original brand of TAjiKA HARUO Scissor Works, which was founded in 1938 by Takeji Tajika, who manufactured tailor shears and other special purpose scissors on order. He was succeeded by Haruo Tajika during a time when scissor makers were still commonplace in Ono, Hyōgo Prefecture and who pioneered many new scissor designs. Now 3rd and 4th generation father and son team Takeo and Daisuke Tajika work together to craft a wide variety of scissors one by one, by hand. Their range includes garden snips, karikomi shears (for topiary style garden styling), tailor shears, kitchen scissors and bonsai branch and root cutters. TAKEJISAKU is the original family brand and used for their range of original shears and scissors, while TAjiKA, launched by Daisuke Tajika, is a new brand for a newly designed range of products. The Tajika family has established itself as a globally recognised name which produces household tools that are not a casual purchase, but become part of a person's life.
