Mizutani Scissors - SWORD Carbon LEFTY
The SWORD Carbon is designed with a carbon fiber handle that is both strong and gentle. It is constructed of 20 separate parts (most shears use 6) and is produced by a single master craftsman.
Light and strong, SWORD + carbon
We have used carbon fiber, which has been attracting attention as a material used in the construction of airplanes due to its strength and lightness. The specific gravity of carbon is only about half that of titanium, which is considered to be a light metal. In order to satisfy the needs for both lightness and strength, we asked a carbon manufacturer that supplies the aerospace industry to manufacture this model according to our requirements, specifying the direction of the carbon fiber and the knitting methods. In addition, the beauty of these scissors are a result of our particularity about the product itself, rather than its appearance. We use SWORD blades, so the charm of this product lies not only in its lightness but also its quality cutting touch.
EXTRAMARISE® is a proprietary heat treatment ideally suited for haircutting scissors that was developed by MIZUTANI based on long years of accumulated data and experience. The same steel material can have totally different performance depending on the heat treatment used. Therefore, to maximize the special qualities of the rare metals (cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) we’ve added to our products to the greatest extent possible, and achieve the ideal metal for scissors, (*hardening, tempering, sub-zero processing) and other complete temperature management procedures are essential. To bring out the distinct characteristics of materials, and manufacture a blade with the ultimate strength required for haircutting scissors, we at MIZUTANI have implemented our own proprietary heat treatment using the ideal temperature for scissors: EXTRAMARISE® processing.
CARBON RESIN BEARING
The bearings made of carbon-contained resin is used that is excellent in friction and abrasion, and several pieces are mounted inside the pivot screw, to produce the even and smooth feelings in opening and closing the blades.
These bearings are made by shaving each of them one by one, using a resin material with excellent mechanical properties. Their smoothness and flexibility makes for an ideal cutting experience, and protects the scissors and screws from wear and tear. Our bearings are gentle to both our scissors and their users.
Compact and easy to turn, this is a flat type driver for UFO screws. This screwdriver is included with all scissors with the mark shown.
