Forged in the Fires of Mount Doom | Parveen

Well, not exactly. More so in the hearth of a village in India by a woman by the name of Parveen.  Parveen is an independent blacksmith in a small unknown town in India.  She specialized in make shears for barbers and tailors, each hand forged of bronze and steel.  Each item after being forged each edge is then sharpened -- enough to cut my hand picking up the closed shears by the blades.  They are weighted to a T and hand stamped "Made in India (12)".  They can be found at random places around the world but only one place in the USA, DARR in Brooklyn (disregard the automated music that can't be turned off on their site).

Those scissors are great - I just bought a pair not unlike these as a stocking stuffer. They're huge and therefore awesome.

I completely agree that the size and weight makes a shit ton of difference. The great part about them is that they are perfectly a sword. AMAZING!!!
