All Made in Japan | Thread Clipper for Sashiko Stitching

Sashiko is a term for "needlework & stitching" but a Sashiko project requires more than just stitching. One of the small task (but not least important task) is cutting the thread nicely.

A standard scissors can cut the thread without any major problems. However. a good tread clipper (we call it Grip Scissors) will improve the Sashiko experience. We carry a variety of Grip Scissors from entry level (mass-produced by machine) to hand-made (Hand-Sharpen) supreme grade. All made in Japan.

All of our Grip Scissors are the size of 105mm (If not, the size will be mentioned). From my experience, any sized hands should fit this 105mm grip scissors by learning how to use them. If you would like to have a bigger one, the size of 120mm Grip Scissors may be available up on the request (the availability for 120mm is smaller than 105mm).

Misuzu Traditional Selection

*Misuzu Scissors Company is a long-established scissor manufacture in Japan. We, as a group of Sashiko professionals, have been pleasantly using their grip scissors for more than a few decades.

Shopping Guide

We carry quite many selection of grip scissors for a Sashiko supplier. This shows how much I care about the thread clipper. I wanted to try everything before I introduce to my students / customers.

If you would like to continue and be serious with Sashiko, I recommend you to get the one with above $20. Since you will be using it for a long time, it isn't an expensive investment. I do not know if one need a hand-made one for the regular usage. However, once you use the hand-sharpen one, you may not be back to the regular clippers, especially not to the entry level.

If you would like to see how grip scissors works, the entry level one with less than $10.00 would just work fine. It is nice to have one of these in your craft box when you are in need of clipping the thread.

The one in between $10.00 and $20.00 is good for both entry level and artisans. There are reasons they are sold in a big market. It is good and reasonable.

Please feel free to contact me a question for more information.

Coron Sashiko Thread #10 Coron Sashiko Thread #15

Coron Sashiko Thread is one of the best Sashiko thread.

We have been so many years of relationship with Coron Thread Manufacture Company. We sincerely believe their thread is one of the best thread available in the market. They are made in Japan and made from Egyptian Cotton 100%. They aren’t the cheapest option, but the price is reasonable considering the length of thread (145-meters) and the quality. In fact, it is the best option to get the better Sashiko result. I always use Coron Sashiko Thread and merely use the other brand thread.

I hope you find these thread appropriate (the best) to your Sashiko project.
