The KAI tailor’s shears from Japan are world famous. We believe that especially the 7000 Series models are the best scissors currently available on the market; we cut all our orders with them. The scissors are comfortable to hold and can handle all fabric qualities almost effortlessly. Joint or tendon problems are not an issue even after intensive use.
This product is the KAI 7230, size medium, with a blade length of 23cm. The scissors are perfect for normal sized ladies’ hands. This size fits most women.
The blades are connected to each other by an adjustable screw, thus ensuring that the tension remains constant. The blades can of course be reground. The handle holes of KAI scissors and shears are ergonomically shaped and covered with elastomeric pads.
The tailor’s shears are primarily designed for right-handed users; unfortunately, KAI does not currently produce equivalent models for left-handed users. There are scissors for left-handers, but not in the professional product line.
