the completely handcrafted scissors are made of copper-plated steel. Due to the hollow grind, the scissors are particularly sharp and always re-sharpen themselves a little while cutting. This means that the copper scissors are not only very suitable for paper, but also for cutting fabrics. The shape of the handles and the low weight as well as the special shape of the blades make even more complicated possible. The copper develops its very own patina, which can vary greatly depending on the use. Some parts of the scissors are not coated with copper; that is why the scissors are a bit sensitive to moisture - especially in salty environments. It is, therefore, best to dry the scissors immediately after use. If the scissors should be a bit stiff, they can be made smooth again with a little sewing machine oil in the area of the screw. When you buy the blade, it will be lightly oiled to prevent rust; you can easily wipe this off with a soft cloth.

The scissors are made in a family business in Ono-City, a city in western Japan that is known for metalwork. The family is already in its fourth generation of scissor making for industrial use and is now forging unique scissors for domestic use with the TajiKa brand.
