Ladies and gentlemen, the artisanal scissor.

We know, that’s crazy, but once you get past the basic incredulity reflex, it’s not such a bad idea—and maybe worth the 90 bucks you’d be dropping on the thing. It’s made from impeccably burnished copper, in a fourth-generation atelier in Kanazawa, Japan. Everything about it is handsome, from the patina of the metal to the slice of the action.

If you know anyone who takes their paper-cutting that seriously, you may be about to make their day.
