What is the difference between new and traditional scissor designs? There are a lot of new professional hairdressing scissors and shears designs out there in the market at the moment, but the reason older brands like Yasaka Shears Japan stays strong is that they are reliable, produce consistent quality and have been improving on older traditional Japanese hairdressing scissor designs for a long long time.
We interviewed a long-time customer, Sarah, a Salon Owner in Brisbane about the choices between modern offset designs and traditional scissor designs:
"I look for simple traditional designs in my new pairs of hairdressing scissors that I buy online in Australia. As much as I appreciate the modern styles and designs, simplicity and quality are the two things I look for when buying hair cutting scissors. My new favourites are the Yasaka traditional shears as they are small, have a slim simple design and cut really well."
The traditional Japanese designs are a new and improved version of old simple Japan hairdressing scissors. The new improvement Yasaka Shears implements in these designs are better engineering and craftsmanship, higher quality robust materials (Japanese Steel) and of course the ergonomics.
The ergonomics are more and more important in Japanese Scissors as professional hairdressers and barbers realise they need to look after themselves as much as they do the shears, so the new lightweight ergonomics puts less pressure and strain on your fingers, wrist and elbow.
The Yasaka Traditional Straight Cutting Scissors are an example of Yasaka’s traditional inspiration for hairdressing scissors and new methods and materials used to produce higher quality products.
They use a clam shaped convex edge blade that allows for the sharpest edge while cutting. This allows the Yasaka Scissors to be used in any situation and to cut the smoothest without any tugging, pulling or embarrassment. Giving the hairdressers and barbers who use these Yasaka Shears the confidence to make clients coming back for more and more.
The convex edge really shines in Yasaka Scissors when they are produced from the right materials, and the Yasaka Traditional Scissors are made from Japanese 440C steel that allow for superior hardness. The result is a sharp blade that just keeps on cutting and cutting!
The ergonomics of the Yasaka Traditional Shears are lightweight and a slightly offset handle. This helps keep a comfortable and natural position while cutting to avoid strain.
Japan Scissors is well aware that RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) is very real in the industry of hairdressers and barbers, so we always encourage the use of the right scissors for you with ergonomics to protect you as you cut.
The lightweight ability of Yasaka Scissors takes a lot of pressure off your wrist while maintaining a blade hardness and sharpness for the smoothest cuts.
If you are looking for professional traditional scissors, Yasaka is the perfect example of ergonomics for professional keeping you safe while cutting and cutting for your clients.
