Japanese Scissors (Nigiri)
Japanese Nigiri are the most ancient form of scissors: Forged from a single piece of steel, they are exceptionally light and comfortable to hold. Pressure from the thumb and forefinger produces well-controlled cuts; the spring action of the thinly forged handle causes the blades to reopen automatically. Nigiri are suitable for all precise work with paper and fabric, opening seams, and trimming houseplants. All Nigiri come in elegant gift boxes.
