  • Features
  • The Hattori Hanzo HH88L Eighty-Eights shear is an outstanding choice for both wet and dry cutting. This is the left-handed version in a 5.5″ length. We craft the HH88L from a specialized high-carbon Japanese stainless steel and this shear features 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 HH88L is still highly ergonomic, with a distinctively molded ring shape for 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 5.5″ left-handed version of the Eighty-Eights is a classic haircutting shear “with a twist” that you simply have to try for yourself.

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.

HH88 Eighty-Eight - 5.0 Inches - Zero Offset Ring Configuration - Dual Removable Tangs

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.
