To give some roundness to an outline, it would be typical to draw the panel across horizontally and create levels. These 50% thinning scissors create levels when you insert them vertically to the hair ends, and the effect is like a gradation.

Developed jointly with Mr. Kazuya Kubo of BAGZY. These scissors were developed with the aim of standardizing the scissors and reducing the time required for training, as well as improving productivity by simplifying the techniques. 5 are thinning scissors used at the root to adjust the volume. They were developed based on the concept of how to best “keep” the hair, rather than “cut” it.

The Front Lines of an Educational Revolution Changing People and Changing Salons
Mr. Kubo, president of BAGZY, speaks of the importance of education that supports staff members’ ambition and independence, while sparking motivation and providing a real sense of growth. BAGZY’s unique and ground-breaking system that enables “early stage debuts” optimizes haircutting education using tools.
The “Cutting Education and Tools” Relationship Indispensable to BAGZY’s Business
Mr. Kubo: “It is surprisingly difficult to adjust hair texture with the around 25% thinning scissors that many hairstylists use. If the stylist is inexperienced, the ends of the hair will be thinner, but the roots will stay thick, and when the hair grows it often loses its style. To that end, I thought up a system of using three types of thinning scissors, 50%, 9%, and 3%, to try to create hairstyles that last.
By using each of these thinning scissors in the right ways, we can work through the issues of certain haircuts that often trip up staff. We created an educational tool that gives motivation to our staff.”
Efficient techniques using tools, and a unique educational style that brings out the individuality of each staff member, are the foundations of BAGZY.
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.
