Mini Japanese Thread Snips with Leather Sheath

Measuring just a bit bigger than a US Quarter, these mini thread snips prove that exceptional things can come in small packages. Made by Hasegawa Cutlery in Seki, Japan's foremost cutlery-making town, the mini scissors are as functional as they are adorable. The silk tassel attached to the finger pad is handmade by Imasato, a tassel and knot specialist founded in 1907 in Fukuoka Prefecture. The snips also include a buttery soft genuine leather sheath for storage.

To use, press the finger pads together with your thumb and forefinger. The spring mechanism keeps the scissor blades open when not in use.

Perfect snips for home and travel

I love these little snips and use them daily. In fact I purchased a pair 2 years ago, and just purchased another pair so I could put them into a separate project bag. Not only are they handy to travel with, but they cut great.

Cute and effective!

These tiny snips are so dang cute! I can't wait to use them while traveling, something many other reviewers mentioned. A worthy splurge for anyone who crafts regularly or on the go.

Love these!

I love these tiny scissors so much that I purchased a second pair. They are easy to carry along when working on a project away from home.

My favorite snips!

I am a super fan of these snips. They are the perfect size for travel, and they fit in my small travel kits for all my crafting (embroidery, sashiko, needlepoint and knitting) They cut through floss, yarn and thread wonderfully!
