In 1781, Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty once visited Jiangnan area in secret and bought Zhang Xiaoquan Scissors for his concubines living in palaces. After the use of these emperor’s concubines, Zhang Xiaoquan Scissors were highly welcome and popular in palaces, so Zhang Xiaoquan Scissors were exclusively made as a tribute for emperor. Furthermore, Emperor Qianlong also inscribed the name of Zhang Xiaoquan for the makers. Since then, Zhang Xiaoquan Scissors became the Scissors of Palace and famous nationwide. From then on, due to the high reputation of Zhang Xioquan Scissors in China, there were more than 86 scissors shops named after Zhang Xiaoquan at most.
