Shozaburo 240 mm Tailor Shears are made from top quality sword-blade steel, that’s what makes them so sharp and strong. These 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. Shozaburo 240 mm Tailor Shears are designed 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.

Shozaburo scissors have a hundred-year history and reputation, the founder was an apprentice to the first Japanese master of Western scissors. Shozaburo shears are considered to be one of the oldest brands of professional sewing tools in Japan. Shozaburo 240 mm Tailor Shears feature a shorter blade length than Western scissors of the same size, 94 mm only. It’s a matter of balance between blades and ergonomic handles that prevent hands from getting tired. Shozaburo 240 mm Tailor Shears fit the hand perfectly, a must-have item for those who sew or craft with scissors a lot. Shozaburo 240 mm Tailor Shears are available in our shop with direct shipping from Japan.
