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. 

:: One pair of Mini Thread Snips
:: Available Tassel Colors: Daffodil Yellow, Rose Red (Pink), Blue, Green and Gray
:: Snips measure 1-1/4" from top to bottom (34mm) and the finger pads are 3/4" apart (20mm) when fully open 
:: Leather Sheath measures 1" tall x 3/4" wide (25mm x 20mm)
:: Silk Tassel is approximately 1" long (25mm)
:: Made in Japan

So darn cute!

These little snippers are so darn cute. Just the right size for a traveling project. The sheath keeps your bags intact and free from tears.

Love Them!

They work wonderfully and are extremely well made and beautiful. I was looking for some small, easy to use scissors. I have some hand problems (and I'm left handed) that make holding regular scissors difficult. These are exactly what I needed!

Wonderful item

The snips, sheath, and tassel are exquisitely crafted—so beautiful. Snips work well, too.

Cutest thread snips ever

I was looking for small, safe scissors for my embroidery bag, and these are perfect. They cut like a dream, but have no sharp point to worry about. I love when a practical tool will last a lifetime and also be a pleasure to look at and hold. The tiny tassel is a bonus.
