Loved across generations
The still much-loved “simple level-set handle.” Its simplicity and the dignity are across time.
It’s special because it’s simple
No special features. This simplicity, in and of itself, enables various forms of expression. With their ordinary shape, these scissors don’t stand out, but they are expertly designed with our expertise. The screw and finger rest are in the optimal positions, the grip that fits anyone’s fingers and the length and balance of the handle that ensures proper force transfer to the blade, all these elements were developed through our long years of experience in scissor development. The craftsmanship and attention to detail inherited through over 90 years of history have stood the test of time, and remain popular today in the simple beauty and quality of this product.
EXTRAMARISE® is a proprietary heat treatment ideally suited for haircutting scissors that was developed by MIZUTANI based on long years of accumulated data and experience. The same steel material can have totally different performance depending on the heat treatment used. Therefore, to maximize the special qualities of the rare metals (cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) we’ve added to our products to the greatest extent possible, and achieve the ideal metal for scissors, (*hardening, tempering, sub-zero processing) and other complete temperature management procedures are essential. To bring out the distinct characteristics of materials, and manufacture a blade with the ultimate strength required for haircutting scissors, we at MIZUTANI have implemented our own proprietary heat treatment using the ideal temperature for scissors: EXTRAMARISE® processing.
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.
