Which Scissor is Right for You?

It can be a daunting process choosing a new pair of scissors with so much choice.

Price reflects the material used to construct the scissor and craftsmanship.

The quality of the steel also dictates how long your shears will perform well without needing to be serviced.

Scissors featuring Japanese steel blades are considered to be some of the best equipment available for stylists today.

FX – Japan 9CR13COMOV – Manufactured in China
Performance – Japan 9CR13COMOV – Hand Forged in Korea
Luxury – Japan 440C Stainless Steel – Hand Forged in Korea
Ultimate – Japan VG10 Stainless Steel - Hand Forged in Korea

What blade size? Personal preference aside traditionally a shorter blade is for finer work and a longer scissor for more powerful work (barbering). 5.5” being the most popular all-rounder.

The right length should be determined not only by the size of your hand, but more importantly, by your cutting technique.
