Made from a specialized, high-carbon Japanese stainless steel, the Eighty-Eights are a great set of shears for both wet and dry cutting. 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 ring shape that is distinctively molded for a much more comfortable finger placement. Cutters who are Vidal Sassoon trained will immediately recognize its style and feel right at home with this shear. This is the classic haircutting shear “with a twist” that you simply have to try for yourself.
