The Sajou Cœur Gilded Embroidery Scissors are a classic of traditional French scissor making. Often described as the 'heart design', they were extremely popular with young gentlemen who offered them to their betrothed. With the handles and heart motifs plated with gold up to the hinge, and the blades being chrome-plated, they're a stunning pair of scissors to look at, as well as use.
As with all quality scissors, they have traces of pairing. Before dipping the steel, the blades are precisely adjusted to make a pair. They're marked; generally by a number as being two parts of a precise pair of scissors; separated before dipping, which gives them their hardness; reassembled, readjusted and finished.
They're lovingly presented in the trade-mark Sajou box with the classic Sajou ribbon. There's even a helpful label on the inside of the box that explains the fascinating handmade manufacturing process.
