– Crossover Anti Virus-
“A pair of scissors that inspires my sensibility” (Whitney VerMeer).
All over the world, a new wave of hair design is taking place that transcends barbers and hairstylists.
The cross-over style, which combines a wide variety of hair designs, is just establishing itself as mainstream in the United States. Mizutani Scissors Japan has taken this style and developed a model to meet the needs of the style. Whitney VerMeer is a global seminar leader. She has joined Mizutani Scissors Japan as a member of their research department and together they have developed the “ACRO CROSSOVER”.
– The Anti Virus Upgrade –
The triple XG-PROTECT coating on the surface of the CROSSOVER “Anti Virus” reduces the multiplication of viruses and bacteria and prolongs the antiviral and antibacterial effect.
The antibacterial effect of the triple-coated CROSSOVER “Anti Virus” is more than twice as effective compared to other coatings. It is more hygienic and safer than conventional coated and/or non-coated scissors.
The optimal model for cross-over style includes:
- a “stable feel” which is important for the technique of “over-comb” cutting in men’s styles
- a “user-friendliness” in the handle that supports and masters various freehand cutting techniques.
- The unique Mizutani Scissors “Nano Powder Metal” which allows for a powerful cutting feel.
The ｢ACRO CROSSOVER｣ model is designed for ultimate creative freedom, making it definitive tool for artists.
The CROSSOVER CA-1 in numbers:
Available in sizes: 5.7 / 6.2 / 6.7
Ring size thumb：horizontal: 15 mm・vertical: 20 mm
Ring size ring finger：horizontal: 18 mm・vertical: 18.5 mm

Our Nano Powder Metal®, made with the new HIP manufacturing method (Hot Isostatic Pressing), is steel fabricated from a fine powder at the nano level. The uniform-grained powder is hardened with high temperature and pressure tempering, essentially eliminating all filler and impurities, and this method is used in precision manufacturing items like Blu-ray disc molds, where high levels of purity are required. At MIZUTANI, in order to create the ideal hair-cutting scissors, we have conducted our own proprietary research with this material, and created scissors with blades that combine strength with a long cutting life and the ultimate sharpness.
