Japanese Super Gold 2 stainless steel – best quality steel used in hair-cutting scissors. Super Gold 2 is a powder metallurgy technology that “atomizes” molten steel to form very tiny grains that are uniformly distributed in a durable tempered base material (martensite). The resulting steel has greater flexibility, fatigue-resistance and wear-resistance than other steel. Smith-forged in Japan by master craftsmen. Creates a silky cut and holds its edge. Comfortable extended-length crane handle. Internal ball-bearing tension system allows for smoother cutting and adjusting. Convex edge and hollow-ground blades. Permanent finger-rest. Scissor available in 5.6” and 6”. Includes complimentary scissor case.
