Mizutani Scissors - TAILORED PenSlim LEFTY
The TAILORED PenSlim LEFTY is designed with an ultra-thin Nano Powder Metal blade, making it an incredibly powerful yet lightweight tool. Thanks to its fine precision, it makes cutting a breeze and spares your hand from strain. Ideal for precision cutting.
The potential of “Nano Powder Metal”
It is widely known that many women suffer from split ends. This inspired our team of product developers to study the mechanics of cutting hair with scissors. We studied the hair closely to determine how scissors can create a clean cut. We discovered that the cutting edge angle, hardness and materials used for the blade all play a role in achieving an optimal haircut. Conventional scissors can become dull quickly when sharpened too much, making them unsuitable for creating neat haircuts.
Mizutani designed a material called "Nano Powder Metal" (NPM), manufactured by HIP (Hot Isostatic Pressing). This nano-scale powder steel is made through fusing uniform particles under intense heat and pressure, resulting in incredibly low impurity and inclusion levels. NPM finds application in the production of high-precision industrial apparatuses, such as Blu-ray disc molds.
The TAILORED PenSlim LEFTY, our new haircutting scissors, was created using Nano Powder Metal (NPM), made of uniform fine particles. Its sharp cutting edge dramatically decreases split ends, while offering exceptional durability and gentleness to the hair. We are proud to present this revolutionary product.
NANO POWDER METAL
Our Nano Powder Metal®, manufactured via Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), is a specialized steel fabricated from nano-level powder. This powder is subjected to intense heating and pressure tempering, eliminating unnecessary filler and impurities. Used to produce precision items like Blu-ray disc molds, it demands exceptionally high levels of purity. At MIZUTANI SCISSORS, we conducted our own research into this material to create the perfect hair-scissors: strong blades that maintain sharpness and longevity.
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.
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
