Since our establishment in 1963, we have been making hairdressing scissors
by hand for over 50 years in Takarazuka, Hyogo, Japan.
The combination of our original structure and the craftsmanship that we have
inherited and enhanced over the years produces Naruto scissors.
The hair is cut cleanly and doesn’ t get damaged because of the outstanding sharpness, which has been described as "a soft cutting feeling".
Our original “Three-dimensional circular ride” structure and sharpening skills are taken into consideration with each pair of scissors. Because of this, our scissors can be used for as long as 20 to 30 years.
Each pair of Naruto scissors are handcrafted.
The ideal angle of the blade is 45 degrees, and the blade is finished evenly from the blade bottom to the blade tip while keeping the thickness of the blades. The thickness of the blades creates the softness of cutting.
The blades and parts are mirror-finished one by one by hand so that they can be used for a long time.
The "curve" of the blade, which is important to the cutting feeling, is created by hitting it with a mallet.
Creating about 0.03 mm, which is equivalent to one hair. There is no measuring instrument, and our craftsmen make judgments based on their eyes and experience.
We use a whetstone to create a blade line on the inside of the blade. We sharpen it just right using our senses. Just the right amount, so that it will open and close smoothly.
Metallic dust comes out when we are sharpening. Skill is needed to remove this. If you make a mistake, the scissors will be ruined.
Mechanism and Structure
The center of the scissors has a unique composite “Three -dimensional circular ride”, which reduces wear on the contact point and withstands long-term use. It is based on a theory that emphasizes functionality cultivated over many years; and it has a structure in which a special resin or bearing packing is mounted in the center to pursue an excellent balance between scissors open/close and the contact point.
The packing in the center differs in both
structure and performance for each series.
There are 4 types of handles.
Hennessy type is our original handle. It has the effect of reducing the fatigue on the wrist and elbow when cutting.
It’s standard offset type.
Eyeglass type (left-right asymmetric)
This eyeglass type is slightly asymmetric. It’s easy to use even for people who are familiar with offset handles.
Eyeglass type (symmetrical)
Symmetrical eyeglass type.
The difference between Straight Handle and Hennessy Handle
The shape of blade
Clam shaped blade
With this shape, you can realize more smooth and soft feeling of cutting which is characteristic feature of Naruto scissors.
It cuts softly with a sharp
Sword shaped blade
Since the blade is rather thick, it is suitable for cutting hard bristles or cutting thick panels.
It cuts strongly with the thickness of the blade.
The features and characteristics
of thinning scissors
The tips of teeth are the shape that doesn’t leave a line where it was cut
The hair goes in (1)~(5) grooves in order, so our thinning scissors can create a natural finish.
The hair goes smoothly through the scissors without getting caught
Because B intervals are wider than A intervals.
The design of the thinning scissors makes it difficult to damage the hair
The sides of the teeth are planed off making the edges rounded. This is also the reason the hair can go through the scissors and not to get damaged.
Kinds of Thinning
There are two blade types of scissors, type S/regular type and type B/reverse type. The reverse type, type B, can give you a very smooth cutting of the hair, allowing the hair to fall naturally when trimming using scissors over the comb technique (Kariage).
