Golden Scissors for the craftsman at home

[ From: Eric Jin | Published: 2007-11-18 Views: 1490 | Booked times: 56 ]

Located in the New Orient Plaza, Golden Scissors specializes in making embroidery scissors, dressmaking scissors, pinking shears and other specialty scissors used in traditional Chinese crafts.

After a walk around the shop, I realized that many of the scissors were also ornamental in addition to being practical. One example was the pair the shop owner showed me. It was Stork Embroidery Scissors (RMB 128), his favorite and one of the best-selling items in the shop. Purely handcrafted with gold-plated handles and a fitted leather sheath, it was definitely more exquisite than any scissor I've seen before. I would recommend it as a gift to someone who would use them in making handcrafts.

The prices for the scissors there range from RMB 5 to RMB 800, depending on the types of material and detail in design. The shop owner does not speak English, but you can examine  their entire selection on display.
