Why should I choose Jikko Shirohagane Tailor Shears 240 mm?
Jikko Cutlery was found in 1900 in Sakai city, pref. Osaka. The iron forging tradition in Sakai started as early as in 5th century. But region’s golden age started in the 12th century, when making Samurai swords gained its popularity. For the next 600 years forging workshops in Sakai remained one of the main centers for producing Japanese best quality blades. Jikko Cutlery is proud to pass the traditions of making excellent blades through the generations of masters.
Jikko Shirohagane Tailor Shears are made from White Carbon Steel called Shirohagane. This sort of steel has minimal impurities and a very fine grain structure, providing exceedingly fine edge and great edge retention. The main reason that White Carbon Steel is used for the high-quality blades is its ability to be easily re-sharpened, so maintaining your shears in a perfect working condition will be easy. These shears come in 2 sizes, 240 mm and 260 mm.
