About ElDorado series

The ElDorado series are scissors with pure gold plating on the handle.
 
Gold is the most resistant metal to oxidization and discoloration, but when gold plating wears, the metal underneath appears.
Please make sure that the plated part does not rub against other objects so that you can enjoy the shine for as long as possible. When storing your scissors, make sure that the gold plated part does not rub against your scissors case or any other objects. Also please note that where it comes into contact with combs etc., this will wear out the gold plating and the metal underneath will appear.

Please send the scissors and warranty card to Naruto Scissors Factory. The turnaround period is about 4 weeks.
