TAKARA BELMONT SCISSORS
true progress, is to combine the wisdom of tradition Shisho, the ancient art of knowing and knowing how to make steel, forging, shaping and tempering it, transforming it into its purest, perfect, living form, into its most powerful, harmonious and reliable dimension, to science and modern technology.
This is the only way to achieve a perfect balance, a perfect harmony between matter, form and function, between desired state and achieved result.
The attention to every detail, the absolute purity of the materials selected such as the alloy of "Japanese VG10 steel and Cobalt"the uncompromising exclusion of improvisation in every production process, the love and passion of our Shisho, masters of handmade metal, who unceasingly and tirelessly shape it for hours on end to give it a soul, make each of our creations the result of patient, painstaking work, and the ability to obtain from the materials used their maximum expression.
Both in its most precise function of use and in its design and ergonomic values.
This makes each of our scissors created a small masterpiece capable of serving you reliably and faithfully day after day in your valuable trade.
There was an ancient covenant between man and metal, this experience to honour that ancient pact.
Japanese VG10 steel and Cobalt Alloy:
High-performance Japanese steel, also called 'golden steel' due to its excellent properties. Superior stainless steel thanks to the chemical-physical properties of the alloy of Carbon, Chromium, Molybdenum, Vanadium and Cobalt, which makes it, unlike other types of stainless steel, perfectly suited to the high-temperature forging process
The process of creating the blades, once the steel has been made soft at 1,200°, consists of bending and beating the metal blade on itself up to 15 times; a process that serves to create up to 32,000 layers of metal fibres within the blade, allowing the individual components of the alloy to distribute themselves homogeneously, evenly and harmoniously.
Next, the blades are sharpened by alternating hot and cold water baths. Finally, the blade is covered with clay and fired at 870°C until the metal turns orange-red.
It is then tempered by immersing it in water at 37°C.
The workmanship, all strictly handmade, ends with a complex polishing phase using abrasive and polishing stones.
