CROSSOVER THINNING USUBA

CROSSOVER THINNING USUBA
“Scissors that inspire my sensibility”
A new wave of hair design is happening all over the world that crosses over barbers and hairdressers.
The cross-over style that interweaves the various hair designs is becoming the mainstream in the United States and we have quickly imported and incorporated this style. Whitney VerMeer, an educator who is active worldwide, has joined as a member in our research development this time and the “ACRO CROSSOVER” was completed.
An optimum pair scissors for the cross-over style was fabricated that manages both the “stable feeling” that is important for scissors over comb cut in men’s style and the “ease of use” that supports various cutting scenes. Additionally, “Nano Powder Metal” is used in the material and one can enjoy a powerful cut feeling.
The 「ACRO CROSSOVER THINNING USUBA」 is the first scissor line developed and designed. Crafted for the ultimate creative freedom, this is the definitive artists tool.

『I love the usability of it! I am currently using the scissor to blend through the transition area and to take out and lines. It is also great to soften to perimeter for a more "lived in" look. This is great for anyone growing out their hair or someone who doesn't want to look like they have a fresh haircut. I do like the weight and thinness of it as well!』

The Nano Powder Metal, with blades at a 30–35° sharp cutting edge angle (image, above right), makes it easy to cut into hair. Many inexpensive or conventional haircutting scissors use blades featuring a less-sharp cutting edge angle, between 40° and 80°, with a greater curvature radius of the edge. These scissors, in addition to a worn and less-tough cutting edge (image, above left), cause the blades to become blunt.

An electron microscopic cross-section image of hair that was cut using the Nano Powder Metal reveals a very smooth cut surface (image, above right). It also shows that hair can be cut almost in a circular shape without becoming “mashed.” When cut using scissors made by another company, however, hair is mashed and cut in an oval shape. A cross-section of the hair shows a rough cut surface (image, left).

Nano Powder Metal USUBA
Our Nano Powder Metal®, made with the new HIP manufacturing method (Hot Isostatic Pressing), is steel fabricated from a fine powder at the nano level. The uniform-grained powder is hardened with high temperature and pressure tempering, essentially eliminating all filler and impurities, and this method is used in precision manufacturing items like Blu-ray disc molds, where high levels of purity are required. At MIZUTANI, in order to create the ideal hair-cutting scissors, we have conducted our own proprietary research with this material, and created scissors with blades that combine strength with a long cutting life and the ultimate sharpness.
THRUST BALL BEARING
THRUST BALL BEARING
These are small, precision metal ball bearings with excellent axial load-bearing ability. Due to their design, which enables radial load-bearing as well, scissors open and close smoothly, which both lessens burden on the hands and contributes to a long cutting life. With anti-rust properties and durability as a matter of course, these bearings are a Japanese-made product.
