Gold plated, ceremonial scissors from Japan

Gold plated ceremonial scissors last used to cut ribbon in 1980 , Japan.
Trying them out on the ceremonial ribbon.

A sharp, well-crafted pair of scissors is a thing of wonder, they have a soul, as do all well-made sharp things such as knives and chisels.  I love the sound these scissors make cutting the ceremonial ribbon, it is precise, significant.

I found them on EBay in Tokyo and they arrived in only a few days.  I wanted something special for the Mayor of Enfield to use to cut the ribbon at the Londinium opening ceremony March 22nd 6pm at the Dugdale centre.
