  • Features
  • The Hattori Hanzo HH8 is our most popular shear overall. The Talon was the first shear produced by Hattori Hanzo, and it has undergone slight changes and refinement over the years to make it the “perfect shear” it is today. The HH8 is one of our wet-to-dry shears; it’s a tremendous wet cutting shear with excellent dry cutting properties. And even though it comes in a vast range of sizes, the Talon feels light and evenly balanced. It’s that lightweight feeling that makes it feel so easy to control when it’s in the stylist’s hand. It has an ergonomic handle and features an offset thumb. With one of the most extensive ranges of size in a shear family, the Talon comes in lengths from 5.0” to 7.5” inches.

    • Proprietary Blend Including Cobalt & Molybdenum Alloys
    • Extreme Versatility Ideal for both Wet and Dry Hair
    • 20-Degree Offset Handle
    • Countersunk Locking Tension Control
    • Screw-in Bumper
    • Lifetime Warranty

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.

Customer service is amazing

I purchased these as a gift for my wife who passed the state exam. Everything looks extremely well made and razor sharp. Placing the order and even returns ( I ordered the wrong length) has been a very pleasant experience. Your staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of, this is the first of many orders I plan to make with you.
