Hand-made seed scissors boasting an old traditionIt is designated as a traditional craft of Kagoshima prefecture,All handmade from handles to cutting edges. As an auspicious product that opens up many difficulties with sharpness and ease of useIt is widely used as a home gift and as a gift. The secret of the sharpness of this seed scissors lies in the unique swell called "edge" of the blade,It seems that when cutting, the blades and blades rub against each other to create a wonderful sharpness. The shakijaki sound of the blades is gentle, and is also expressed as "brush the blade every time it cuts". It does not mean that the cutting edge is hard to cut like mass-produced scissors.

Brush the blade each time you cut
It is said that the cutting edge rubs and polishes as much as you use it, and the sharperness increases. The ideal form of the scissors is tough and not to sharpen and keep the sharpness long. This seed scissors can be said to be an excellent piece that fulfilled the ideal.
Natural rust preventive processing
The handle parts except for the cutting edge of the scissors are black, but there are reasons for this. When iron burns at high temperature and touches the air, the surface oxidizes and becomes a film.That is why it turns black, which is a natural rust stop. However, because it is a natural rust inhibitor, care is necessary. Please check the following care instructions. In general there are many slippers and smooth scissors,Whether these scissors are polishing for a long time,Whether it is mass produced by stainless steel, either case is considered.
Comparison with general scissors
Seed scissors were introduced in "Daily 100" by Yutaro Matsuura
※ From 'Daily 100' Quotation I bought this seed scissors and I was going to go to TanegashimaAnother friend bought me on the way back to Kagoshima. When opening the box, it was the same as the seed scissors we saw before. I immediately cut the paper. The paper broke straight as much as I could move without putting strength. At this time, my concept of scissors changed a lot. The blade never touches it.
How to Care
· After useAfter use, wipe off moisture thoroughly with a dry cloth, please paint a thin oil and keep it.Also, if you regularly grind with a grinding stone, you can keep a sharp sharpness for a long time.· When rust comes outIf rust comes out frequently, please sharpen the blade with # 3000 or more grindstone.Rust falls without putting strength.· When rust comes out on the part of the black skin (possession)Please polish off with an abrasive such as a grindstone or cleanser.In that case, the black oxide film will fall, but as it repeats it will look like a knife in total polishYou can enjoy the tasteful atmosphere that you used.
