For the pinnacle of beauty and performance, choose our exciting Damascus series hair shears. KASHO’s Damascus is formed by layering different types of metal alloys together, then forging them into a single piece. The cutting core of the shears—the part that cuts hair—is premium VG-10W stainless steel for top performance and an incredibly long-lasting edge.
The beautiful, rippling patterns on the shears are created by 8 micro layers of Damascus steel on the outside of each blade. In Japan, this style of blademaking is known as kasumi, which means “mist,” because the exterior Damascus has a lovely, misty appearance.
These striking shears are handcrafted in Japan by our master artisans. The samurai sword-style/hollow-ground blades are precision sharpened by hand and the hair scissors are polished to bring out the Damascus patterning. Shear tension is perfected with an integrated ball-bearing system that ensures smooth operation. As a final, sophisticated touch, the Damascus series features a ceramic inlay of the KASHO logo on the tension screw.
