“Scissors” is the life of a hairdresser / barber. There are three types of processing methods for detecting two types of scissors: forging and casting.

Simply put, forging means that it can be used for a long time because the strength is increased by hitting the iron plate.

-On the other hand, castings can be made into desired shapes by pouring iron into the mold. Compared with forging, the strength is reduced.

The major difference between forging and casting is “strength” and “flexibility”.


If the scissors are made as they are, the metal structure may not be uniform and the finish may vary.

In order to make the structure uniform, forging by hitting a metal, it is possible to increase the strength of the material and improve wear resistance and toughness.

Even if the same material is forged or not, the effect is obvious.

When toughness and strength are improved in a well-balanced manner, it is often the case that blade spills caused by accidental dropping or cutting of sand on the hair can be accommodated with minimal maintenance.

* Some errors may occur depending on the age of use, how many people / day, hair quality, wet or dry cut, etc.


 Casting is mainly used in the handle part. If you compare it with clothes, there is a place where you want to see one piece, and there are places where all the forging is made from sheet iron, but there are many scissors where the blade part is forged and the handle part with a high design system is made by casting. There is an advantage that you can attach a handle with a design that suits your taste, but the strength is not so stiff, and if you drop it, it will bend immediately.
Whether it is strong forging scissors or not is not obvious at first glance, so hairdressers often use it for one to two years, and those who want to buy strong forging scissors should contact the manufacturer of the distributor Please purchase after checking to check.

"440C" is a JIS standard steel material, which is manufactured by various companies. Hitachi steel is the most highly regarded in the industry.
Since “440C” is Hitachi's superior steelmaking technology and is extremely high in purity, Hitachi's “440C” steel is about 1.5 to 20% more expensive than the competitor's standard steel.
Hardness is the same, but wear resistance is strong, and viscosity and toughness are greatly different. Those with high wear resistance are steel materials that are difficult to machine, and handling them requires craftsmanship and effort. The amount of time and effort required by craftsmen not to compromise with superior Japanese technology leads to the sharpness of the salmon and the comfort that fits in the hand.
Currently, more high-grade materials have also appeared, and "ATS314" is a higher-grade material.


"ATS314" steel is a stainless steel cobalt alloy. By mixing the cobalt alloy, it was possible to have higher wear resistance with higher hardness.
”It is a higher grade steel than“ Hitachi 440C ”, making it difficult to process and higher prices.

The ski cuts are made with wire cuts of 鋏, 1-chome and 1-chome. It is possible to design eyes that are more complicated than conventional skies. This makes it possible to create a comb blade shape that can control the cutting rate, and an unprecedented sharpness.
