Type K Lefty
The usability is hidden in the edgy design.
The ACRO TYPE-K Lefty reliable workhorses that can be used for a broad variety of cutting tasks-are so popular that their users don’t want to part with them even for repairs. This long-selling product of Mizutani, which has become an object of timeless affection, is now reborn for the first time in 13 years, becoming even easier to use.
While maintaining the classic original shape, we’ve achieved evolution by remanufacturing the details such as the components, the shape of the blade, and the way it fits comfortably in your hand. The design of the blade also inherits the genes of the ACRO. With all fat boldly trimmed away, this model has evolved into the ideal balance so you can enjoy its bite, which is even sharper than it looks.
The NEW ACRO TYPE-K Lefty, which hide their user-friendliness behind their pointed design, show us the way that scissors should be in order to enjoy hair design.
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.
These bearings are made by shaving each of them one by one, using a resin material with excellent mechanical properties. Their smoothness and flexibility makes for an ideal cutting experience, and protects the scissors and screws from wear and tear. Our bearings are gentle to both our scissors and their users.
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.
