11. Iron scissors by Tajika Haruo.
"When I first contacted Tajika scissors, they weren't sure about exporting their scissors to Canada. They asked their friend Oji Masanori if he had heard of our store, and lucky for us, we had just finished having his first exhibition in North America at our store. When Masanori told us this story we laughed; we had no idea there was ever a problem! The scissors have been made in Ono City, Japan, for four generations. We don't know what the rules are on wild flowers, but we use our flower shears every weekend to stop by the highway to pick daisies for the cottage."
