Mizutani Scissors - BLACK-SMITH Matelite-Q Quicksilver
A hug for your hand.
Eyes are quickly drawn to the hands of hardworking professionals, even if they're not perfect to look at. However, many hair designers suffer from hand-related issues like calluses and carpal tunnel due to prolonged use of scissors. This inspired us to create the MATELITE-Q series, which were designed with a user-friendly, ergonomic fit for those with hand fatigues. With these scissors, hair designers can keep working comfortably for years to come.
Developed to offer superior hand comfort, the BLACK-SMITH Matelite-Q Quicksilver is unparalleled in its class. With curved edges and an ergonomic handle, the model boasts a plush and soft feel that helps to prevent hand fatigue, joint pains, and calluses. The model is also equipped with a classic dial tension adjustment as well as the BLACK-SMITH all-around blade.
The unique EXTRAMARISE® heat treatment was developed by MIZUTANI and was designed specifically for hair cutting scissors. It is a result of extensive research and data collected over many years. Different alloys of the same metal can vary greatly in their performance depending on the heat treatment used. To enhance the special properties of the rare metals (cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) incorporated in our products, MIZUTANI has undertaken a comprehensive heat treatment process, including hardening, tempering, and sub-zero processing. EXTRAMARISE® processing is the optimal temperature to unlock the best qualities of the materials and craft a strong, exceptional blade suitable for hair cutting scissors.
Crafted with a specialized resin material, these bearings are delicately shaved one-by-one, providing a smooth and flexible cutting experience. This enhances the lifespan of our scissors and screws, plus ensures a pleasant user experience.
The handles feature an organic appearance that resists metallic sheen. It's sculpted, curved shape provides the cozy feel of natural material, curving and clinging to the finger's shape like a welcomed embrace.
