Even if you're not into Japanese history, there is one figure you should know: Tokugawa Ieyasu, the brilliant 16th- and 17th-century general, warlord, and politician who not only brought over a century of civil wars to an end but also started a dynasty of shogun (military commanders/dictators) who would rule Japan for over 250 years. And since he was a samurai commander, what better tribute to him than a version of his katana sword that you can use in your everyday life: the Nikken Tokugawa Ieyasu Samurai Sword Scissors!
As befits something related to Japan's most powerful man, the Nikken Tokugawa Ieyasu Samurai Sword Scissors come in a paulownia wood gift box, accompanied by a wooden name tag with the shogun's name written on it. Their case is designed like a katana sword's saya (scabbard) with the Tokugawa family crest on it. As for the blades themselves, they are very sharp and made in Seki, a city in Japan's Gifu Prefecture that is considered one of the world's greatest cutlery centers!
