Please consider WASHOU Scissors on your next scissor purchase. If your a barber or a stylist who does a lot of dry cutting, scissor over combing and insist on using a high quality “authentic Japanese shear.” It is most practical to buy the simplest entree level shear with less pricey alloys.

A simple high-grade authentic Japanese (440C) stainless steel is most resilient and practical for your needs. The difference between cutting threw butter with a red hot knife or a plasma torch will soon feel the same within a few days or weeks of rough treatment and neglect from busy real life conditions. In the end the fancy steel alloy mixtures mean higher maintenance and more money spent! Learn to navigate through all the hype and spin.
