A smooth slide gentle to the hair.

The vital “seasoning” in the creation of a style the Acroleaf WIDE. This long-selling product enables smooth sliding to avoid damaging the hair. The smooth sliding effect that does not flake the hair was achieved by applying the necessary weight and thickness in combination with the sharply curving line of the blades. Furthermore, we have achieved a longer slide-stroke by gouging the heel of the blade into the shape of a leaf, which had the effect of increasing the length of the cutting edge despite the relatively small blade. In addition, in terms of thinning, we have improved the point of the comb blade to significantly improve the smoothness with which these scissors can be withdrawn from the hair. We have termed this new thinning feature resulting from our redesign “double-function thinning.” One pair of scissors handles the functions of both quantitative and qualitative adjustment of the hair. This allows you to freely adjust the cutting percentage depending on the angle of the scissors. Furthermore, the new organic design of the handle now makes it easier to use. Experience the sliding feel of the Acroleaf WIDE, which is the secret of its extreme popularity! And if you want the hair to slide even more, let us know. We can handle requests for custom designs.
Just closing scissors, the skived shape blade
makes slide cut from the bottom,
it does not remove cuticle.
EXTRAMARISE® is a proprietary heat treatment ideally suited for haircutting scissors that was developed by MIZUTANI based on long years of accumulated data and experience. The same steel material can have totally different performance depending on the heat treatment used. Therefore, to maximize the special qualities of the rare metals (cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) we’ve added to our products to the greatest extent possible, and achieve the ideal metal for scissors, (*hardening, tempering, sub-zero processing) and other complete temperature management procedures are essential. To bring out the distinct characteristics of materials, and manufacture a blade with the ultimate strength required for haircutting scissors, we at MIZUTANI have implemented our own proprietary heat treatment using the ideal temperature for scissors: EXTRAMARISE® processing.
The handles are so designed that they look nonmetallic, alive and organic. You may feel some warmth from the three-dimensional, twisted handles, and once touched, you would not like to part them from your hand.
Compact and easy to turn, this is a flat type driver for UFO screws. This screwdriver is included with all scissors with the mark shown.
