Nakabayashi Hikigiri Slim Scissors - Fluorine Coating - Dark Grey

Scissors & Cutters

Available for Afterpay &

When Nakabayashi went to the blade artisans of the Japanese town of Seki for advice on making scissors, the end result was a pair of scissors so well designed and comfortable to use that they won the 2016 Good Design Award. The design is based on the principle that a cut is best made by slicing rather than chopping or sheering. In fact, Nakabayashi Hikigiri Slim Scissors are named for that important insight: Hikigiri, meaning “to cut while pulling” in Japanese. In this case, the “slice” is achieved by curving the upper blade, thus making it longer than the lower blade. Most importantly, this slice action means that you don’t need to use anywhere near the same amount of force to cut as you would for a conventional pair of scissors.

Nakabayashi did not stop the design process with this one feature. They made the cutting process even more comfortable by lining the finger holes with a removable soft resin band. Fluorine coated stainless steel blades will keep the edges clean of sticky tape residue. Double bevelling the blade edges makes for a sharp yet durable edge. The tapered ends make them easy to maneuver while cutting complicated shapes.
