Description / details

Nigiri Basami is a pair of sharp and durable Japanese grip scissors (wa-basami) with a timeless aesthetic, designed by Banshu Hamono. Used for cutting thread and for complex areas. They come in a number of variations, such as with rounded tips or curved blades to prevent damaging the fabric. Nowadays, it is rare to find people with the ability to make these types of scissors from a single rod of iron by hand. As with Tachi-Basami, because they are made of high-carbon steel, wa-basami are sharp and durable. They also use a high-quality steel, called Aohagane to make wa-basami, which is tougher and more durable than other metals. Handmade in Japan.
