“Scissors that inspire my sensibility” (Whitney VerMeer)
A new wave of hair design is happening all over the world that crosses over barbers and hairdressers.
The cross-over style that interweaves the various hair designs is becoming the mainstream in the United States and we have quickly imported and incorporated this style. Whitney VerMeer, an educator who is active worldwide, has joined as a member in our research development this time and the “ACRO CROSSOVER” was completed.
The optimal model for Crossover Style includes:
- a “stable feeling” which is important for the technique of “over-comb” cutting in the men’s area
- a “user-friendly” handle that supports and masters various freehand cutting techniques.
- The unique Mizutani Scissors “Nano Powder Metal” which allows a powerful cutting sensation.

Thinning of “ACRO COSSOVER” shows up as which mixes barbering and hairdressing. In the men’s cut, which frequently opens and closes and easily accumulates fatigue, the sense of stability is increased and better handleability. Prevention of distrix with a sharp blade made of nano-powder metal, and improved thinness by using a thin blade.
Whitney VerMeer “I love the usability of it! I am currently using the scissor to blend through the transition area and to take out and lines. It is also great to soften to perimeter for a more “lived in” look. This is great for anyone growing out their hair or someone who doesn’t want to look like they have a fresh haircut. I do like the weight and thinness of it as well!”
The ｢ACRO CROSSOVER THINNING USUBA｣ is the first scissor line developed and designed. Crafted for the ultimate creative freedom, this is the definitive artists tool.

NANO POWDER METAL USUBA
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.
These metal ball bearings are small, high precision items produced by a Japanese manufacturer. With superior anti-rust properties compared to foreign-made products, they have a high level of durability. By drastically reducing friction around the screws, they not only ensure smooth opening and closing of the scissors, lessening burdens on the hands, but also protect the edge from damage, contributing to long cutting life.
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.
