The Vachi "Performer" is our most affordable and popular line of shears. While being our most affordable, Vachi does not sacrifice the craftsmanship, design quality, and performance that Lucky Hare Shears is noted for. They are forged and crafted to the same high standards and in the same general styles of all the Lucky Hare Shears lines. Vachi shears are made from Hitachi Japanese cobalt alloy steel. Many stylist first purchase the Vachi as an affordable entry level shear and never look elsewhere to achieve the elegant feel and smoothness of the cut that the Vachi provides.
