How small can the very best scissors be? This was the playful challenge of Mr. Hasegawa to his artisans at Hasegawa Cutlery, a manufacturer of edged tools in Seki, Japan's foremost cutlery-making town. The result: the adorable and remarkably sharp Seki Mini Scissors. They are a true labor of love from a company with a commitment to time-tested craftsmanship and inventive ideas.
Simply pinch lightly to cut cleanly through thread, cloth, or other thin material with ease. Scissors come with a genuine leather case for convenient portability, and each pair is adorned with a beautiful silk tassel from Tassel Studio MARIMO in Fukuoka Prefecture.
The Seki Mini Scissors fit easily into a bag, pocket, or toolbox. Both practical and stylish, they're a great backup to shears in a pinch and make for an excellent gift. Choose from multiple tassel colors for a tiny tool suited perfectly to your own style.

I bought them as presents, one for me, one for my sister. Love them. Very sharp and useful when carrying projects around.
These are my second pair of mini scissors - couldn’t resist this colourway. I love the fact that they come with a dinky little leather case.
They are tiny enough to fit in my little notions tin, but they are really sharp - just right for snipping threads/yarn.
