Sajou Langres Gilded Embroidery Scissors


We have run out of stock for this item.

Sajou has called these embroidery scissors Langres, a town which, before Nogent, was one of the centres of cutlery and scissor making in France. Denis Diderot, one of the great philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment was born in Langres, his parents were in fact, cutlery makers! The golden handles are comprised of a floral motif with delicate pearl-like marks placed on the 'eyes'. 

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.
