This pair of Japanese one-piece steel scissors seems to be around 75 years old, and while the blades are probably laminated, we can't find any seams to verify it. The maker's mark on one of the blades seems to say "Kumakawa Shoten".

These scissors are in fair condition. There is much general wear and many spots and patches of slightly bumpy oxidation, but there is no significant structural damage . They cut paper fairly smoothly, but there are some chips in the cutting edges, and so clean-up and sharpening would be beneficial.

About L6 7/16" (164mm), with L2 13/16" (71mm) cutting edges.
