  • Description
  • Features
  • The Hattori Hanzo HH3L Kenta 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 left-handed 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 two lengths, from 5.5” to 6.0” inches. Because the versatility of this scissor is so broad, the Kenta can accommodate almost any cutting style.

    And for our right-handed swivel cutters, the HH3L also comes in a lefty configuration called the HH3 Ayako. We offer the HH3 in five different lengths: 5.0” through 7.0” inches in half-inch increments.

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.

Go to shear

I bought this shear over a year ago and since that day I’ve only put it down when I’m not at the shop. This shear is my go-to be it dry or wet hair. The double swivel allows for comfort and angles that would twist/contort your wrists. This shear makes point cutting a quick process. I would highly recommend this!

Love my new shears

These shears are super comfortable and cut beautifully. I don't think I've ever been more comfortable cutting with any other shear.

OUTSTANDING

I am left handed and I am always finding myself bend my wrist uncomfortably when I have to cut at different angles, with the double swivel thumb I am able to cut from every angle with out breaking my wrist! I love these.

Amazing

Being a lefty, I'm a little picky about my shears; but these a top notch. Plus the costumer service I was given really made a difference. Thank you!
