Hattori Hanzo Swivel Shears
An in-depth look at our complete line of swivel scissors
THE SWIVEL SHEARS SERIES
Hanzo swivel shears and texturizers are laser-focused on ergonomics and protecting the health of your hands and wrists across your entire career. With swivel versions of our most popular shears all the way up to our flagship high-carbon swivel, there is a swivel option for every stylist and barber.
A swivel shear allows the stylist independence in the thumb, which relieves pressure on the wrist. As the stylist opens the shear, the thumb is permitted to swing outward and keep the top of the hand still and the rest of the arm in a much more straight and neutral position. The swivel focuses on making the thumb the primary moving muscle. Since the thumb swivels, it also allows the user to rotate the shear 180 degrees to promote channel cutting and creative shear techniques with more comfortable pointing with ergonomic control.
For example, the Hattori Hanzo HH3 Ayako is one of the mainstays of the Hanzo line of swivel shears. We developed the HH3 with a focus on ergonomics along with an emphasis on technique. Not only does this shear come in a single swivel, but we also offer this in a double swivel configuration. The double swivel extends even more independence to the thumb to further encourage ergonomics in the wrist and hand while allowing complete mobility for the thumb.
And if you’re looking for a swivel tool that can cut through anything, the Hattori Hanzo HH6S Kime Swivel is a swivel enthusiast’s staple in Hanzo’s high-carbon shear range with strong emphasis placed on its dry cutting properties. Potentially our most well-rounded shear, the HH6S swivel series not only efficiently cuts dry hair but will make short work of any kind of wet haircutting as well. It has a thicker blade designed to push through thick, coarse dry hair quickly. The Kime Swivel was developed with an ergonomic handle plus an offset on the swivel thumb to give the user more control and comfort while cutting.
