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.
