Fine shears with lacquer coated handles encased in a genuine leather sheath. Tamenuri is a deep brown color produced by applying layers of transparent lacquer on top of vermilion lacquer.
The layers of lacquer bring out a translucent luster and depth. Beautiful luster and tasteful shine will appear over time, and the smooth texture unique to lacquer will fit comfortably in your hand.
The light and stable cutting edge is made of durable and rust-resistant Japanese stainless steel.
The lacquer is manufactured by Ehara Lacquer Work in Nagoya City of Aichi Prefecture which is most notable for their lacquered Buddhist altars housed in temples and homes.
The shears are made by Mr. Hasegawa Cutlery in Seki City, Gifu Prefecture, one of Japan's leading cutlery towns.
