Ikenami Hamono 5-sun & 7.5-sun Tanebasami Scissors | Presentation Gift Set
Traditional Japanese craft and fabric scissors.
Beautifully presented paulownia gift box.
Hand-forged on Tanegashima Island.
7.5 sun tanebasami (22.7cm total length) are sewing scissors, perfect for fabrics and pattern-cutting. In years past they were commonly used when sewing kimonos, which requires long, straight pattern cuts. They have a timeless design and they cut all fabrics wonderfully well.
5-sun (15.15cm) tanebasami are ideal for tasks requiring precise cutting. At under 60 grams they are light and nimble in the hand and they cut very accurately. Perfect for patchwork, papercrafts, book-binding and repairs and many other creative pastimes.
Paulownia is a light, sustainable wood often used presentation boxes in Japan. It has a lovely grain and ages very nicely. Tanebasami gift boxes are heirloom quality and are printed with the Japanese kanji characters for 'hontanebasami', meaning 'genuine Tanegashima scissors'.
