Passion, the King of scissors. Truth be told, stainless is actually one of the best materials for scissors. It’s got just the right flex, it’s durable, high quality yet not too expensive. Not all stainless alloys are equal, mind you. The Japanese variant of the 440c stainless alloy is a rare type, made from sand ore, giving it an extraordinary purity rating. That means that even if the scissors are dropped (try not to), the tempered blades won’t break.
