The following link is a good article on China’s long history of scissor making. http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/em/fr/-/news/business-22160739 . It’s older than our country and still is not a brand outside China but it looks like they are starting to export more and more. This covers and interest aspect of import and export and you must know your target market. These scissors are high quality and have multiple uses but does not meet the needs of the US market for example. From the article the US prefers longer blades and shorter handles and the Chinese market requires short blades and larger handles. All of our relatives in China have these Chinese scissors and I think they are great because of the larger handles for my large hands. They must be durable in the Chinese market because they are used for everything. It is so interesting that China does not have a global brand but these scissors could be a start. This is an interesting article and I just may go to visit their factory on my next trip to China and buy me a pair of scissors. On every trip to China I make it to a factory for a tour and sampling. I enjoy seeing the real China and how everyone works and how the factories operate. Often times I get invited to visit a factory just because I am a foreigner and the Chinese know that the US is the largest market in the world and they want to sell to us at every chance. Even thou I do not have any interest in the product to import to the US they are always offering a show. For example, my wife’s best friend’s father works at a honey manufacturing plant and invited me to see the process and get free samples. They asked if I knew anyone who would want to import the honey. It was an interesting tour and the process was very sanitary but I could not help them find importers. There is so much more to China than the awesome sites I hope you get an opportunity to see all of China.
