Mizutani Scissors - BLACK-SMITH Solid Thinning 30 LEFTY
Two professors of Ergonomics and Metal Engineering conducted an analysis that resulted in the BLACK-SMITH Solid Thinning 30 LEFTY. These scissors feature a center of gravity situated close to the hand to reduce wobbling while cutting. Additionally, a carefully controlled hardening process brings out the ideal properties of the materials, rendering it the ideal all-purpose scissors. For barbering, the 6.5 and 7.0 sizes are particularly recommended.

EXTRAMARISE® is a MIZUTANI-developed heat treatment specifically designed for scissors. It uses the perfect temperature required to bring out the most out of special materials like cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc. and create a blade with the ideal strength for haircutting. The performance of any material depends on the heat treatment, which is why the company's proprietary approach (*hardening, tempering, sub-zero processing) is essential. In fact, the process has been carefully crafted to benefit from long years of data and experience. EXTRAMARISE® processing is the ultimate heat treatment for scissors.
These high-precision metal ball bearings are produced in Japan and boast superior anti-corrosion characteristics compared to foreign-made items. With decreased friction around the screws, they lessen strain on the hands while also protecting the blade from damage, resulting in a longer operational lifespan.
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.
This flat type driver for UFO screws is designed to be compact and easy to maneuver. It is included with all scissors with the Mizutani Scissors marked logo.
