Lucky Hare Shears was purchased by Fine Edge LLC located in Glen Arm, Maryland in Feb. 2015. Mark Deaton is president of Fine Edge LLC & Lucky Hare Shears. Mark is a mechanical engineer who started a shear sharpening business in Dayton, Ohio in 1985. During this time he obtained a US Patent for a scissor corrugating mechanism for hair cutting shears. Mark's background in engineering gives Lucky Hare Shears the technical expertise as it can be applied to shear metallurgy, movement hardware, and the manufacturing process. He is factory certified in shear sharpening and repair service.
Lucky Hare Shears has its origins as a family business owned and operated by George Harris and father-in-law Mike Mazzola. Together they represented 60 years of combined experience in professional shear sales and service.
Mike Mazzola's extensive background in the hair care industry was a key factor in establishing the Lucky Hare brand. During his thirty-five years in the hair care industry, Mike owned a beauty supply house, he owned a salon, was a salon designer, and also worked as a hairdresser and master barber. Mike also produced and directed multiple beauty/ hair shows.
In May 2000, George formed Salon Sharpening Service Company, a company dedicated to serving the shear, accessory, and service needs of professional stylists and salon owners. The design, manufacturing, and the marketing of The Lucky Hare Shear lines then emerged to be the central focus of the company.
Since its inception, Lucky Hare Shears has established a reputation of providing elegantly styled, high quality professional shears at affordable prices.
Lucky Hare Shears are Japanese convex edge style and are made from the finest Hitachi 420C, 440C, VG-10, and ATS-314 Japanese cobalt alloyed stainless steel.
