and co-developed scissors for the men's cuts.
With the thin blade and long inch that can only be achieved
with nano powder metal,a new expression can be realized.

precision work as well as creating texture,
the handles are slightly offset to make it more comfortable when
cutting and light weight to prevent fatigue.』

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
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.
