Cohana Lacquer Scissors
The Spring 2022 colours are currently sold out - apologies!
Working with the best Japanese craftspeople and manufacturers, Cohana have produced these very special scissors with traditionally made lacquer handles.
The sharp pointed steel blades are made by Hasegawa Co. in Seki, an area renowned for its blade making. They are ideal for cutting threads and fine delicate work.
The handles are finished in traditional Japanese lacquer work by the Ebara Lacquer Works in Nagoya. Lacquer* feels warm in the hand, has a wonderful depth and will mellow and improve with use. The scissors come with a beautiful leather sheath and are presented in a wooden box with a polishing cloth.
These surely are the most beautiful little scissors and make a wonderful and exclusive gift!
Available in a rich red or deep brown lacquer, plus occasional limited edition versions to reflect the seasons.
Total length: about 105 mm

*Please note - in rare cases, some people may have a sensitivity to Urushi tree sap, one of the natural ingredients of lacquer. Please be aware of this if you have sensitive skin.
Avoid exposing lacquer to extreme light and temperatures.
