These scissors are actually designed as traditional thread cutters and have been used as such for many years in Japan. But recently our customers have embraced them as really efficient herb scissors for the kitchen and garden.
We have these scissors made for our Kohetsu brand by a leading manufacturer in Japan. They are constructed from the high quality steel known as Aogami #2. This alloy is well respected in knife circles for its ability to hold a very sharp edge over protracted use.
The scissor action is created by the spring steel design of the handle. One uses one’s thumb and index finger to squeeze the blades together. A simple and elegant solution and a great way to reduce the parts and cleaning required by normal scissor designs.
The Kohetsu Aogami #2 Herb Scissors measure 105mm on the blade, so they are compact and light to use. But make no mistake, they are efficient cutters of everything from string to cardboard, flowers to herbs. An all-around great addition to your kitchen drawer or knife roll.
Overall Length: 105mm
Edge Length: 45mm
Steel: Aogami #2 (Blue #2) Carbon Steel
Made in Miki, Japan
