Scissors with carrot or daikon radish cover - Made in Japan


This listing is for one scissor with either a white daikon radish or an orange carrot shaped plastic cover. Please select the number of items and color using the pull-down menu.

These scissors are the perfect accessory for sewing, embroidery or sashiko. They are lightweight, sharp and they have an adorable plastic cover in the shape of either an orange carrot or white radish root. The scissors fit snugly inside the cover and "snap" into place so that the sharp, stainless steel scissors are protected.

The back of the cover has a large magnet so that the scissors can be placed on your fridge so that they will not be miss-placed. The scissors also have a hole in the handle so that they can be tied to the cover or another location, if desired.

The stainless-steel blades will cut paper, thread and quilting cotton. The finger holes are small so they are for quick fixes (hanging threads etc.) and not for large projects. These are sharp so they should be placed in a location that children can not use them or maybe only used under direct supervision by an adult.

The scissors measure 3.35 inches (8.5 cm) total in length without the cover and 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) covered. The entire metal blade measures 1.85 inches (4.7 cm) in length.

**I am right handed but I have used these scissors in both my right and left hand with no issues so I believe them to be ambidextrous**

The blade is made of stainless steel and the handle and cover is made of plastic.

This item is made in Japan.

Adorable, though the carrot cover is a little bit darker than pictured. Very sharp little scissors that have already come in handy several times.

The most excellent, sharp and well-made miniature snipping scissors with carrot and radish covers. I purchased some from Japan years ago and have not seen them in years! Thank you for having them and shipping so quickly! Highly recommend this shop A+++++

The perfect kitchen companion for my strawberry timer. Arrived quickly and exactly as described.
