Dimensions: 155mm (L) x 65mm (W)
A patina will develop over time and the colour of the copper will change as it ages, which does not affect performance, but gives the scissors extra character.
TAJIKA HARUO Scissor Works 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 individually, by hand. Their range includes garden snips, karikomi shears (for topiary style gardening), tailor shears, kitchen scissors and bonsai branch and root cutters. TAJIKA is the family's premium brand and 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.
