Mizutani ACRO Crossover CR-1
The cross-over style that combines the various hair designs has become the mainstream in the North America and we have quickly brought over and incorporated this style. Whitney VerMeer, an educator who is active worldwide, has joined us a member in our research development, thus creating the “ACRO Crossover”.
An optimal pair of scissors for the cross-over style, the Crossover was designed to manage both the “stable feeling” that is important for the scissors-over-comb cuts in men’s style and the “ease of use” that supports various cutting techniques. Additionally, Nano Powder Metal is used in the material so that you can enjoy a powerful cut feeling.
Proceeding her arrival into the industry, Whitney studied cosmetology prior to her barber apprenticeship which lent traditional technique to add to her unique and ever evolving skillset. She has designed and deployed advanced barbering curriculum for L’Oréal, Andis Company, and Mizutani Scissors.

Nano Powder Metal
Our Nano Powder Metal®, made with the new HIP manufacturing method (Hot Isostatic Pressing), is steel fabricated from a fine powder at the nano level. The uniform-grained powder is hardened with high temperature and pressure tempering, essentially eliminating all filler and impurities, and this method is used in precision manufacturing items like Blu-ray disc molds, where high levels of purity are required. At MIZUTANI, in order to create the ideal hair-cutting scissors, we have conducted our own proprietary research with this material, and created scissors with blades that combine strength with a long cutting life and the ultimate sharpness.
These metal ball bearings are small, high precision items produced by a Japanese manufacturer. With superior anti-rust properties compared to foreign-made products, they have a high level of durability. By drastically reducing friction around the screws, they not only ensure smooth opening and closing of the scissors, lessening burdens on the hands, but also protect the edge from damage, contributing to long cutting life.
Compact and easy to turn, this is a flat type driver for UFO screws. This screwdriver is included with all scissors with the mark shown.
