  • Features
  • The Hattori Hanzo HH1L Kamikaze left-handed shear is the newest addition to Hanzo’s exclusive high-carbon family. Now available in both right and left-handed options, left-handed cutters can now enjoy the elite slide-cutting capabilities that the Kamikaze offers. Designed with a wide blade and exaggerated radius, this shear excels at dry slide cutting, allowing it to cut through coarse, dry hair easily. The HH1L is perfect for any left-handed stylist who does a lot of dry finishing or detail work, such as channel cutting, slide cutting, carving, face-framing, and point cutting. The Kamikaze is especially useful for curly hair (typically cut dry) with a curved shape to follow the curl pattern. The HH1L is adept at layering, texturizing hair, and blending extensions.

    This shear is also available in both swivel and right-handed configurations.

Countersunk locking tension control

Countersunk locking tension control enables stylists and barbers to readily adjust and control the amount of tension or tightness between the blades of the shears. This feature is important for maintaining the performance and longevity of the scissor, as well as ensuring clean and efficient cuts. It allows users to tailor the tool’s performance to specific cutting tasks and materials.

HH1 Kamikaze Dry Slide Cutting Shears - 5.5 Inches Right Handed - Ergonomic Handle

Screw-in bumper

This feature is designed to absorb shock or impact and protect the shears from damage during use. It is often found on the pivot area of the shears, where the two blades meet and interact.

Shock Absorption

The screw-in bumper absorbs the shock that occurs when the blades of the shears come together during cutting. It reduces the stress and wear on the blades and pivot point.

Leverage Protection

Hanzo’s screw-in bumpers prevent chipping or dulling of the blade edges by blunting the impact. This is especially important when cutting especially hard, abrasive, or dry hair types.
