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


Essential Series Shear is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best! 5 stars! The best shears I have ever purchased. Took a little bit to get used to, but after a couple haircuts it felt natural and it was hard to go back to regular shears.
