Katana shears are beautifully forged and crafted from Hitachi Japanese 440c cobalt alloy stainless steel for quality, performance, and durability. It's most often cited by a devoted following in online reviews across the web. The Katana is especially noted for its smooth and silky cutting action. The "Katana feel" stands for the shear's special balance between weight, feel, and cutting dynamic.
Swivel Thumb: The innovative swivel thumb design allows the positioning of the shear in multiple planes while the hand and arm remains in a more naturally relaxed position. The swivel thumb design is a joy to work with when creating complex and intricate haircuts. Once the technique of handling the swivel thumb is mastered, this shear is must-have in the stylist’s tool kit.
Blade Design: The cutting blades are forged and finely polished into the traditional and popular Japanese convex edge and are hollow-ground on the inside of each blade to give a razor sharp cutting action day in and day out.
Handle Design: The handles are “offset” for holding the shears in a more natural and comfortable hand position. This puts less stress on the thumb tendon and helps reduce the risk of repetitive motion CTS.
Adjusting System: Our popular dial-spring-leaf-tension system allows for easy adjustment without a tool and holds the desired tension setting securely.
Removable Finger Rest: The finger rest is removable to suit a wider variety of cutting styles. Remove as needed by simply unscrewing the finger rest.
Sculptured Handle: The shank of the handle has been contoured to provide a “groove” for the middle finger and the index finger to create more control and feel.
Available Lengths: Length is measured from tip to end of longest handle without regard to finger rest. Lengths of 5.5",6.0",6.5" and 7.0".
