These springy, one-piece scissors are traditionally used in Japanese textile and needle work. The blades rest in the open position and the cutting action is achieved by squeezing the blades together. This motion is both comfortable and exceptionally quick.
ITO Thread Snips come in two varieties. The Regular Thread Snips are solid steel with a 7 cm handle that rests comfortably in the palm. The Luxury Thread Snips have a soft iron body for added flexibility. The cutting edge is made of extra-hard steel, with a slight contour for precision slicing. Both styles are of high quality, but you can hear and feel the difference!
