KASHO COLLECTIONS FOR HAIRDRESSING PROFESSIONALS HANDCRAFTED IN JAPAN
For over 100 years, the Kai company has been producing cutlery according to the traditions of the legendary samurai of old Japan. In the process, the desire to preserve ancient traditions and to combine them with innovative techniques represents no contradiction, but forms the basis for new products that honour Japanese blacksmithing while meeting modern demands. With the highest quality standards, Kai has made it its mission to produce scissors for professional use. Made from natural resources, shaped and formed according to the expertise of the ancient blacksmithing art of the samurai, Kasho scissors epitomise Japanese craftsmanship carried out with the highest degree of precision. From the design to completion of each individual scissors, the focus is on the development of an integrated and carefully considered product. Since beginning as a family business in 1908 in Seki, Kai has developed into an international company.
Kasho scissors feature two different stainless steel alloys in order to meet the high Japanese quality demands for sharpness and material. The combination of different hardness grades means that every pair of scissors is perfectly balanced and guarantees that the cutting edge is exceptionally durable. The unique “Ultimate Edge” Kasho scissor blades guarantee that they are a pleasure to work with and cut accurately. The unique manufacturing process ensures the necessary precision of the concave inner surfaces (hollow ground) and convex outer surfaces of the scissor blades. These blades are honed to an extremely sharp state with the inner side hollowed to such a point that the blades only touch at the point of intersection. This refined technology ensures superb cutting edge durability, while at the same time reducing cutting edge resistance to a minimum and thus considerably limiting hand fatigue.
The Kasho Hair Styling Scissors are made in different handle configurations – offset, semioffset and straight. With the offset handle, you can work with your shoulders straight and elbow down, using minimal wrist movements. The semi-offset is a comfortable compromise between the offset and straight models. When working with the semi-offset or offset models, the shoulders remain straight and the elbows are not raised, putting far less strain on the wrist.
Every pair of KASHO scissors is supplied with optimal tension settings; these do, however, occasionally need to be checked and readjusted as required, to ensure the durability of the cutting edge and to guarantee ease of use. Most KASHO scissors are therefore fitted with a tension adjustable screw to ease re-adjustment. The patented Disc Operation System ensures that the KASHO Millennium and XP Series are always perfectly tensioned. This sophisticated screw system consists of an enclosed ball bearing unit, a special spring and a synthetic disc that ensures uniform pressure and incredibly smooth operation. The enclosed ball bearing is free from collecting hair, dust and other substances so that nothing may affect the precise movement of the scissors, whilst the synthetic disc between the upper and lower blades minimises friction and wear of the blades. Thanks to this complex Disc Operation System with a replaceable synthetic disc the Millennium and the XP-Series have a considerably longer life span than any conventional models.
