Zhang Xiaoquan is the most familiar scissor-making brand in Hangzhou, and even the entire country, with a history of nearly 400 years. By strictly following traditional techniques while actively pursuing innovation, the brand has gained tremendous momentum in recent decades and its spirit has also inspired Shi Jinshui, an 86-year-old craftsman whose name has been associated with the brand and the art of iron forging for most of his life.

Let's get to know Zhang Xiaoquan's scissor-branding story through Shi's angle, and an introduction to the distinctive dish of stir-fried gardenia flowers in Jiande city is also waiting for you.

Starting on June 17, a brand new bilingual program entitled Hangzhou Eye will offer the world new insights into Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province.
