Sotaro Dressmaker's/Tailor's Shears
"Tobasami" Traditional Forged in Tokyo


Recently, we discovered a passage in a book that described the history of Traditional Forged Dressmakers Shears in Japan. We were impressed by their quality and the 400 year old traditions that have been preserved and handed down to the current generation. According to the passage, around 400 years ago a Japanese sword smith known as Yakichi started to make traditional forged dressmakers shears in the Edo (Tokyo) region. At this point in time, dressmakers shears and Western clothes were gradually being imported in to Japan from the West and, as they gained popularity, demand grew. After researching these dressmakers shears, Yakichi began to produce his own shears using many of the same forging techniques and skills that he had previously used to make swords. 

Today, some 400 years later, there are still small areas in Tokyo where several of these traditional forge-smiths and craftsmen continue to produce Traditional Japanese Forged Dressmakers Shears. One of these craftsman is called Sotaro and he is a 5th generation disciple of Yakichi, the original pioneer. From one generation to the next, "Yakichis" special production methods and passion have been successively passed down from Master to apprentice. Today, "Sotaro" produces some of the best quality Traditional Japanese Forged Dressmakers Shears that are available. 

While there are many machine-made scissors and shears available on the market today, we love the comfortable and smooth cutting action of these hand forged, handmade Traditional Japanese Dressmakers Shears. We are proud to introduce these historic shears due to the high quality of their craftsmanship and we have confidence that their Mirror Polished Hitachi Yasugi Hagane (High Carbon Steel HRc. 60-61) blades will serve you faithfully for many years. 

Please Note: While the brass pivot bolt and nut can be used to adjust the cutting action of the shears, this should not be necessary as they have already been carefully adjusted by the manufacturer. Similarly, while the shears can be disassembled for sharpening, the manufacturer recommends that this process is only done by a professional sharpening service or a very experienced user.

Hiroshi Suzuki Custom Knives
New Collection from 2017 Atlanta Blade Show in June!
Every year in June, we have tables at Blade Show in Atlanta together with Kiku Matsuda and Hiroshi Suzuki, Two great Japanese Custom Knifemakers. From this year's show, we would like to introduce 12 models from Master Hiroshi Suzuki

 

His father runs a small factory in Saitama for precision Nippers. By helping father's work at young age, he became interested in the metal processing and began making knives about 30 years ago. He is a member of Japan Knife Guild, and actively attending various knife shows. I'm helping his table at the Blade Show in Atlanta every year and get some selected knives from his table before they are gone. He buys rare handle materials at this show by hand picking only premium quality handle material. Now, we are pleased to be able to offer his fine works to the JKD customers. It's worth for his prices!

Hiroshi Suzuki Custom Knives
Best Collection from his 2016 - 2017 works!  
 
What a beautiful mirror polished blade! This is the first impression for everyone who first saw Master Suzuki's knives. He devotes tremendous times and technique to achieve this sparkling mirror finish. He finishes each blade by hand polishing (no belt sander) from coarse to finer sandpapers (#800, 1000 and 1200 grits). After heat treated, he will start hand polishing again with #1200 up to #2000, and then final finishing to a high mirror with Diamond Abrasive Pastes. No compromise! If he found any flaws or scratches during the polishing steps, the entire blade surface will be re-ground and re-plolished again from the beginning.

Collaboration Knives by Tosa Blacksmith, Kosuke Muneishi & Seki Custom Knifemaker, Fumio Inagaki 
 

For years, we have been working for a project to produce the most durable forged blades using Japanese traditional "Tansetsu Warikomi" (鍛接割込) forge welding method, that requires long experienced special skills to wrap insert Hagane hard cutting steel (鋼) into Nantetsu soft steel (母材).

For this forging work, we chose the Tosa Blacksmith, Kosuke Muneishi, the 3rd generation of Muneishi Blacksmith family. He uses 40mm wide x 19mm thick Nantetsu soft steel forged 20 layers for outer base steel, and cut split by chisel Tagane and insert Aogami #2 (Hitachi Blue steel) cutting Hagane core into the split. Then, the repeated hammer hot forging makes two different steels bonding together and creates beautiful Damascus patterns. This is a time consuming process with skilled technology, and makes the most durable multi-layered blade to bending and breaking.

For the blade polishing and putting handle work, we chose Seki Custom Knifemaker, Fumio Inagaki. We have searched and imported rare Exotic wood materials for the handles. It took about a year to receive forged blade blanks from Master Muneichi, and then 3 months for Mr. Inagaki to finish the knives and sheaths. This collaboration work has combined Japanese traditional forged blade and western style handle, resulting a practical and durable knives for hard use. Available in small EDC knife to a large Bowie.
