Why should I choose Shozaburo Rasha Tailor Shears 280 mm?
Rasha, or Raxa are Japanese tailor shears designed particularly for cutting thicker fabrics like coat wool. They are slightly heavier than regular models, with the weight center moved closer to the ends of the blade, allowing to make even small precise cuts.
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.
These shears are made of combination of cutlery steel and dead soft steel. Hard cutlery steel provides the sharpness of the blade’s edge and wear resistance. Dead soft steel is very hard to manufacture, the meta has to be heated up to the temperature where the residual stress is removed and the carbon percentage falls down to less than 0.10%. This steel is less brittle, easy to resharpen and resistible to corrosion. Combining two sorts together allows the shears to be durable and easy to maintain.
