  • Description
  • Features
  • The Hattori Hanzo HH3 Ayako is one of the mainstays of the Hanzo line of swivel shears. We developed our swivels with a focus on ergonomics along with an emphasis on technique. 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.

    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. This shear comes in a wide variety of lengths from 5.0” to 7.0” in half-inch sizes. Because the range of lengths is so broad, the HH3 Ayako can accommodate almost any cutting style. And for our left-handed swivel cutters, the HH3 also comes in a lefty configuration called the HH3L Kenta. We offer the HH3L in two different lengths: 5.5” and 6.0” inches.

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.

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.
