One of the best-developed steels for sword-making in the history of warfare was Damascus. While it is believed to have originated in Syria, the Damascus steel system was used extensively in Japan for the legendary Samurai sword.

Today, professional hairstylists do not go into battle with swords, but they do need exquisite steel that is flexible, hard, sharp and durable. Kamisori's innovation continues with our exclusive collection of Damascus shears.
