For many centuries the Japanese made some of the finest edged tools in the world. In the 16th century, when they first became known to the west, Europeans were amazed at the quality of their swords, woodworking tools, knives and other edged tools including scissors. These scissors are made today as they were more than 500 years ago. The only concession we have made is to have them made from a very basic high carbon STAINLESS steel; .50-.60 Carbon, 13-14% Chromium and tiny amounts of Manganese and Molybedinum. These are not toys, they are tools that will work as well today as they have for many hundreds of years. Buy them for fly tying or other delicate work, or for your wife and daughters. The blades measure 1-3/8" and the overall length is 4-1/4". Weighs 0.6 oz.

A.G. Russell Knives

From the age of nine I made homemade knives until I was about twenty-four when I began to make handmade knives, crude but no longer made at home. A few years later, I had met and learned from makers like R.W. Loveless and R. L. Dozier. I made knives until the mid 1970s. I don’t make handmade knives anymore, as my hands aren’t what they used to be. However, I do have very talented makers in the United States and Japan who make knives that I am proud to put my name on. I design pocketknives, one hand knives, lockbacks, and fixed blade knives and have them made to our standards. ~A.G. Russell III
