Slimmer, Lighter, Stronger
By using Nano Powder Metal, lightness and slimness makes them perfect for delicate work, like around the face, nape line, and cut lines for bob styles.
Slim Precision Cut
Usually a blade this slim would not be able to stand up to hair, but by using Nano Powder Metal, we have created scissors that are slim but a tough rival for hair. Their slimness makes them perfect for delicate work that would be difficult with thicker scissors, like around the face, nape line, and cut lines for bob styles.
Surprisingly Lightweight, When You Hold It – It’s too Late after Tendovaginitis
An unexpectedly large number of women stylists find scissors to be heavy and difficult to use, and quite a few of them struggle with tendovaginitis. The weight of the scissors becomes an important point for finding their own perfect pair. The ACRO Z Airy is a full 17% lighter than the regular ACRO Z, so even women can cut for a long period of time without their hands feeling tired.
Perfectly Fits to Women’s Hands
Women’s hands are on average about 15 mm smaller than mens’ hands, so a regular handle puts more of a burden on their hand when opening and closing. By making the handle width 5 mm smaller, these scissors are easier to open and close, and therfore put less of burden on the hand.
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 are small, precision metal ball bearings with excellent axial load-bearing ability. Due to their design, which enables radial load-bearing as well, scissors open and close smoothly, which both lessens burden on the hands and contributes to a long cutting life. With anti-rust properties and durability as a matter of course, these bearings are a Japanese-made product.
The handles are so designed that they look nonmetallic, alive and organic. You may feel some warmth from the three-dimensional, twisted handles, and once touched, you would not like to part them from your hand.
