The first tailor’s scissors imported to Japan during early Meiji period were re-designed for Japanese, and became RAXA scissors which became the prototype for the modern tailor’s scissors.
This Hasami Masamune tailor’s scissors are forged from Shirogami White paper #2 which allows the blade to maintain its cutting edge for a long time.
The blade hand finished by the blacksmith guarantees a superior cutting edge that can be experienced when cutting fabric.
Shirogami White #1 EMade up of Carbon: 1.25 E1.35%, Manganese: .20 - .30%, Phosphorus: .025%, Sulfur: .004%, Silicon: .10 - .20% Almost identical to Blue #1 steel except for the absence of Chromium and Tungsten, this is a very pure Carbon steel alloy.
