Mizutani Scissors - BLACK-SMITH Matelite-Q Lite
Your hands need care.
People‘s eyes naturally gravitate to the hands of hard workers. They may not be the most attractive, but their touch is sincere. There, within the hands of professionals, lies real beauty. Nevertheless, there are a number of hair designers who work their hands too hard. As a result, they suffer from pain caused by “callus” or “carpal tunnel syndrome”. Our aim was to create scissors that are comfortable in the hands. It was this desire that led us to produce the MATELITE-Q series. To produce scissors with the ideal ergonomic fit, we made repeated improvements until we reached a user-friendly design perfect for people with hand problems. The MATELITE-Q series is easy on the hands of hair designers. With these scissors, they can continue pursuing their beloved profession for years to com.
EXTRAMARISE® is a proprietary heat treatment ideally suited for haircutting scissors that was developed by MIZUTANI based on long years of accumulated data and experience. The same steel material can have totally different performance depending on the heat treatment used. Therefore, to maximize the special qualities of the rare metals (cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) we’ve added to our products to the greatest extent possible, and achieve the ideal metal for scissors, (*hardening, tempering, sub-zero processing) and other complete temperature management procedures are essential. To bring out the distinct characteristics of materials, and manufacture a blade with the ultimate strength required for haircutting scissors, we at MIZUTANI have implemented our own proprietary heat treatment using the ideal temperature for scissors: EXTRAMARISE® processing.
These bearings are made by shaving each of them one by one, using a resin material with excellent mechanical properties. Their smoothness and flexibility makes for an ideal cutting experience, and protects the scissors and screws from wear and tear. Our bearings are gentle to both our scissors and their users.
The handles are so designed that they look nonmetallic, alive and organic. You may feel some warmth from the three-dimensional, twisted handles, and once touched, you would not like to part them from your hand.
