What It Is

An ergonomic hair cutting shear

What It Does

The Essential Series Shear is a high quality Japanese alloy hair cutting shear designed for ergonomic comfort and precision control. These shears allow you to cut with your elbow in a downward position, reducing stress on your hand, wrist and body.

What Else You Need to Know

The Essential Series Shears feature the same ergonomic advantages of the Signature Series Shears:

• Neutral hand/thumb position for a relaxed cut

• Angled handle allows for an elbow down posture in most cutting positions

• Constructed from 440C steel - the highest grade of stainless alloy

• Cryogenically tempered steel improves the durability of the edge by up to 40%

• Click set streamline tension system provides consistent tension throughout the life of the shear

• Convex blades provide the smoothest, longest lasting cut available - these type of blades are the same as our Signature Series Shears

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I was really excited to snag these shears on a good sale but even if they hadn't been, they are worth the money!! I love how they feel on my wrist and fit in my hand. And the heaviness of the steel displays the great quality of the metal used to make these!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me Not for me . I am used to Japanese years and I don’t like the Ergonomic shear and prefer a smaller Japanese shear which I currently have but 20 years old..Not bad shear if you like that type.
