What Our Artist Have To Say
“I love the double tang, this allows it to be comfortable no matter how you pick it up, this helps with speed. Also i love how it cuts the straightest line you will ever see.” – Cole Thompson
“I love the 88 because of the double tang , thin blade and it is the most perfectly balanced shear whether using a 5 inch all the way to a 6 1/2 from tip to tang” – Wayne Tuggle
The new 88 series launched by Hanzo Shears, nominated for “best new launch” in the Beauty Launchpad 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards, stands out above the rest. The Hanzo88 series is a line of shears that has an extensive range of versatility. The Hattori Hanzo HH88 Eighty-Eights series is an outstanding choice in shears for both wet and dry cutting. We craft the HH88 from a specialized high-carbon Japanese stainless steel, and this line features four shear lengths, dual removable tangs, straight handles, and a tried-and-true zero-offset ring configuration. And while the offset may be zero, the finger positioning for the HH88 series is still highly ergonomic, with a distinctively molded ring shape for much more comfortable finger placement. Cutters who are Vidal Sassoon trained will immediately recognize its style and feel right at home with this shear. The Eighty-Eights are classic haircutting shears “with a twist” that you simply have to try for yourself. We broke down the key features of the 88 line for your pleasure!
Premium High-Carbon Japanese Stainless Steel
The materials used in this shear are the best of the best. We don’t settle for anything less around here! The high carbon steel will ensure that this shear lasts you a long time and won’t have to be sharpened nearly as often as others. The Steel used in this shear is also great because it will work with wet and dry hair.
Great For Both Wet And Dry Hair
Because of the premium high-carbon steel, hair professionals can use the shear both wet and dry hair. The shear cuts through hair incredibly smooth and precise because of the sharpness of the blade. Dry haircutting with this shear is fantastic as well!
Dual Removable Tangs
We designed this line with dual removable tangs to customize it to the hair professional. If you love the double tang, you can leave them both on; if you want to have one tang, you can adjust your shear accordingly. Also, both tangs can come off if you don’t like to have them on the shear. The great thing about this shear series is that it’s entirely customizable for the professional.
Ergonomic Ring Configuration
In the cosmetology world, ergonomics is essential. The amount of strain put on hands, wrists, neck, and back can be strenuous and cause significant damage to the body over time. We had that in mind when designing this shear. Not only is it lightweight, but it has an ergonomic ring configuration to keep the wrist in the correct position and prevent injury.
Counter-sunk Locking Tension Control
Tension on shears can get in the way, pull hair, and cause other issues. We noticed the struggles of tension getting in the way and designed our shears to have countersunk tension. Our tension stays out of the way because the tension plate is built into the shear.
We designed the shear series with a screw-in bumper just like the rest of our shear lines. We love the feature of the screw in the bumper because it allows the shear to be fully disassembled and cleaned. Another reason the screw in bumper is excellent is if the bumper is damaged for any reason, it can easily be removed and replaced.
