Classic Iron Butterfly Scissors


These scissors have been made by the Hangzhou Zhang Xiaoquan Company in China since 1663. Imperial dynasties, wars and revolutions have come and gone but throughout that time this company has continued to make beautiful and lasting scissors.

These scissors are crafted from iron, steel and copper. No plastic is used in the making of these scissors at all.

This kind of scissor can sometimes be called by different names. Some call them bonsai scissors, others call them Chinese butterfly scissors. We prefer to call them flower scissors, as that's what we use ours for the most.

They are very sharp and durable and are favoured by stylists for there pleasing aesthetic too.

These are available in two sizes, medium or large.

Measurements in length :


Medium - 14cm

Large - 20cm
