Cohana Scissors

$115.00 Sold out

Image of Cohana Scissors

Beautiful & sharp hand-crafting scissors, forged and hand-fitted by master craftsmen for a sharp edge and a smooth, hitch-free cutting experience.

The handles are lacquer, hand painted with gold trim.

The very tip of the scissor blades is straight (it is a small tip, so this is barely noticeable), so that the points don't snag fabric. The blades are very sharp. The cutting motion is smooth. The finger holes, though thicker than most finger holes on fine embroidery scissors, are comfortable and roomy.

The scissors are light, sharp, mechanically smooth, and very beautiful.

Each pair comes with a leather sheath and a tassel of gold and silver, packaged in a wooden box with a microfiber cleaning cloth for polishing the handles.

4 1/8” long

Colors & Availability

The Cohana scissors are available in five colors: dark aqua green, pink, yellow, vermillion (lipstick red!), and burnt sienna, which is a dark, rich mahogany brown. (Personally, I have the burnt sienna - it's classic and timeless!)


The Cohana scissors ship to US & Canadian addresses via priority mail. They'll be packaged in a small shipping box in a bubble polymailer to protect from weather.

Any notable extra shipping (from combined shipping if purchased with other goods) will be refunded when your package ships.
