Left-Handed Scissors Made in Seki, the City of Blades


The ALLEX scissors come from "Hayashi Cutlery," a brand renowned for its craftsmanship in Seki—a city famous for its blade-making tradition, including Japanese katana.

Unlike standard scissors, ALLEX All-Purpose Scissors for left-handers feature reversed blades and a symmetric handle design, catering specifically to left-handed users.

Their design excellence is recognized worldwide, evidenced by their permanent collection placement at the "Die Neue Sammlung International Design Museum" in Germany, and winning Japan’s prestigious Good Design Award.

A Size That Fits Seamlessly into Daily Life

At a standard length of 16.5cm (6.5 inches), these scissors are the perfect size for office work. However, with slightly smaller handles, those with larger hands or specific gripping styles may find them a bit snug.

For those users, or for tasks like scrapbooking, we recommend the larger-handled "ALLEX All-Purpose Scissors (Large Size), Left-Handed.
