Product information Slice range scissors
History:In 1996 Sharpline decided to introduce a new range of hairdressing scissors the equal to the best Japanese brands. The Slice range of scissors were designed for western hands and for western techniques. Our enthuses was on quality slide cutting and precision cutting performance, wet or dry utilizing blade metals that were more wear resistant and robust than average stainless steel scissors. In 2002 manufacturing was moved to Seki city Japan utilizing Takefu VG10 Cobalt Molybdenum stainless steel blades and the same parts as the Australian scissors with a whole new range of updated designs.
Construction:Two piece welded. Takefu VG10 Cobalt Molybdenum stainless steel alloy blades. Please note we only used hot and cold rolled bright grade, sheet VG10 alloy which has the densest grain structure and the lowest level of impurities. Computer controlled, vacuum furnace hardening with nitrogen injection sub-zero slow recovery tempering (performed twice). This heat treatment is the best available and ensures our finished Slice scissors have a high corrosion resistance and a uniform hardness without being brittle. Rockwell hardness 59 to 61. Corrosion resistant handles. Integrated click type in-built adjustment assembly.
Design features:Slice scissors are designed to be versatile and perform all current hairdresser’s techniques very well. The extra cobalt added to the blade alloy also makes them suitable for dry cutting up to 50%. The blade profile and finished edges are the most suitable of all the Sharpline scissors for hairdressers who are heavy handed. Slice scissors are the most drop resistant of all the Sharpline brands (although not drop-proof!). Edge retention is up to 3 longer than standard stainless steel scissors. The handle designs of the Slice scissors match our Stellas range making it easy for hairdressers who want the best of both world’s to have matching scissor designs from both ranges.
