Japanese Damascus steel is renowned the world over and is famously used in Samurai swords because of its strength and hardness. This unique steel is rare, but easily distinguished by the “raindrop” pattern in the metal. Yento Damascus shears are completely hand made and go through more than 160 individual processes to produce the ultimate cutting tools. Blades are razor sharp and the comfortable, offset handles on short shanks make these shears essential equipment for professional use. The straight Damascus can be used for both heavy duty scissoring and finishing whereas the single thinner is the ultimate blending and finishing shear.Supplied in a deluxe pouch complete with tension adjuster tool and cleaning cloth.
