Mizutani Scissors - SWORD D-19 LEFTY
The SWORD D-19 LEFTY is made with a new Kengata edge (arched-like shape which makes the cutting surface more powerful). This series is ergonomically designed to prevent wrist issues, with a redefined three-dimensional handle and a built-in ball bearing made from carbon resin, to reduce strain on the hand while providing a smooth cutting experience. Lightweight 'Kengata' edge finish.
SWORD series, thought thoroughly for your hands.
These scissors are developed with an ergonomic design aimed at preventing wrist/joint pains. We have reconsidered the location of the thumb (which is shorter than the other fingers) to make these scissors easier on the hands, placing the finger holes in the most natural position. Furthermore, to reduce strain on the hand, we have used a carbon resin bearing and titanium-plated wave washer. Whether you are troubled by joint issues or whether you have never had any concerns about your hands, it is important for long-term use to choose a tool that will reduce the burden on your hands.
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.
CARBON RESIN BEARING
The bearings made of carbon-contained resin is used that is excellent in friction and abrasion, and several pieces are mounted inside the pivot screw, to produce the even and smooth feelings in opening and closing the blades.
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.
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.
