Japanese Sewing Scissors
Japanese Sewing Scissors
Right tailor shears are essential for anyone who sews. And there is a big difference between just not bad scissors and really good ones made in Japan. Regular sewing scissors can cut most of the fabric, open smoothly and require little maintenance. But if you sew and craft a lot, that’s not enough. Japanese sewing scissors have razor-blade edges, they perform perfect cuts both on thick fabric and the most delicate ones, like embroidered silk or transparent gaze. Best tailor shears made in Japan have ergonomic handles that prevent hands from getting tired, they are air-lightweight and strong. And all professional Japanese scissors are made to serve for years with their excellent durability.
The key point is in the history of Japanese scissors. Japanese tailors used the knifes for cutting straight lines and little U-shaped shears for precise cuts, those were typically made by the same technology as the swords blades. Japanese blades often combine different types of steel of differing hardness. The edge, which must be hard to maintain sharpness, is made of hard metal. But the soft metal will resist chipping and will bend rather than break. One more feature of Japanese sewing scissors is there professional polishing, when the master takes time to sharpen each single pair of scissors to make sure they cut perfectly whatever you want them to cut. In the middle of XIX century Japanese people started wearing Western style clothes, so the tailors became using Western-style X-shaped shears. But the imported ones were heavy, bulky and not as sharp as Japanese scissors, so Japanese blade-making masters were requested to make the best sewing scissors, that are now famous all over the world.
