Mini Scissors from Seki
These mini-scissors were created by Hasegawa Cutlery, a manufacturer of edged tools established in 1933 and located in Seki, Gifu Prefecture, Japan's foremost cutlery-making town.
You can cut with these scissors by gripping them with your fingers and pinching lightly.
Pincushion of Mini Masu
Japanese masu, wooden measuring boxes, have a 1,300-year history.
This skill and culture has been handed down by Ohashi Ryoki in Ogaki, Gifu prefecture.
This little mamemasu wooden box, created with delicate craftsmanship, has been turned into a lovely pincushion that fits snugly in the palm of your hand.
It is made from fragrant Japanese cypress, using dovetail joinery to securely hold the shape of the box.
The skills of a craftsman have produced a beautiful and functional mamemasu that is just 15mm(0.6 inch) square.
The fabric on the pincushion is a high-quality linen woven in Hamamatsu, which allows needles to pass smoothly through fabric.
