With the new SlideCut scissors, KASHO is placing a special focus on its own tradition, which primarily is shaped by the swordsmanship of the Japanese Samurai. The technically innovative functionality of these scissors is inspired by the ultimate sharpness and cutting performance of samurai swords and thus creates the perfect combination of a flowing drawing and cutting movement. The unique design - completed by a micro ball bearing system- allows an extremely sharp and precise cut. Due to the elaborate manufacturing process in Japan, these scissors are limited to 100 pieces per year.
The KASHO SlideCut reproduces an incomparable cutting movement: A simultaneous pulling and cutting is combined with the until now rigid closing principle of scissors. Guided by a special micro ball bearing system, the scissors move as if on rails during the cutting process. With this effective design, the upper blade moves forward during opening and retracts to its original position during closing, which gives the closing process a real cutting experience. The result is fatigue-free work and a particularly precise and sharp cut, even on dry hair.
By this, the operating principle of the KASHO SlideCut differs from conventional scissors, where the hair is only cut by the blades sliding past each other during the closing process.
Only 100 are crafted annually and the Slide Cut comes in 6.5"
