In a history dating back over 100 years, the KAI group, based in Tokyo, is renowned for its superbly functional, incisive and durable cutting tools and related products. These traits have positioned KAI’s products among the world’s best. The common denominator – quality and perfection – is based on the centuries-old tradition and culture of the Japanese Samurai sword smithy.
The blades of which are saw-toothed instead of straight. They leave a zigzag pattern instead of a straight edge.
Pinking shears have a utilitarian function for cutting woven cloth. Cloth edges that are unfinished will easily fray, the weave becoming undone and threads pulling out easily. The sawtooth pattern does not prevent the fraying but limits the length of the frayed thread and thus minimizes damage.
These scissors can also be used for decorative cuts and a number of patterns (arches, sawtooth of different aspect ratios, or asymmetric teeth) are available. True dressmaker’s pinking shears, however, should not be used for paper decoration because paper dulls the cutting edge.
