Scissors circa 1940, manufactured during the Japanese occupation of Korea. From Lea Armstrong: "My father owned a manufacturing plant when he bought this scissors. He used own a few companies such as making tops of Japanese wooden shoes (keta). Tops made with silk so that he used this scissors to cut the fabric. He used own a textile company as well and used this scissor to cut fabrics. I believe that my father bought this scissors in 1940 or so during Japanese occupation of Korea. My brother Tom Kim (Kyu Tai Kim is his Korean name) brought this scissors to Hawaii in 1968."
