💎 DLC = Diamond Like Carbon 💎
The hardest coating in the world to put on scissors 💎💎💎💎💎
Around 20 years ago, I remember cutting a gentleman’s hair who happened to be a CEO of a mining company. So I asked him what type of drill bits they use to drill into rocks… I was interested in this because of the type of hard steel that it must take and how I can incorporate this steel into scissors.  I also asked him How do the drill bits not break, dull or bend while drilling into hard rocks 🪨 ? 

His answer was a revelation! He said; “We use special drill bits which are coated with DLC”
I was astonished at this technology and I just HAD to learn more and see if we could have it on scissors.  So I called our craftsman in Japan, Master Ono.  I explained everything I’d learned about DLC and asked if we could put it on scissors… And the rest is history… This is our DLC mark 3! Our third model.  Each one different and better than the last.  We have reached our evolutionary peak with this version.  It is STUNNING in every way! Comfort, design, color, smoothness and incredibly beautiful. 

DLC adds an extra layer of protection to your scissors.  It increases the hardness so that it is protected right up to the very edge of the cutting blade - this is what gives its longevity for staying sharp like no other.  It’s strength is great if you travel a lot with your scissors. It also gives:
✅ drop protection
✅ allergies protection
✅ rust protection 
✅ ultra smooth feels
✅ Precision Cut
✅ Dry Cut
✅ Wet Cut
✅ Slice
✅ Curls - all methods 
✅ Point Cut - now built into the handle
✅ Scissor-over-comb 

Everything we create is a culmination of everything we’ve experienced as hairdressers and barbers over forty years. 
From the type of steel we use to the ergonomics and overall design. EVERYTHING has purpose! ✨💫✂️

Sizes: 6’ & 6.5’
We can also customize any Zen Master Scissor with DLC.

shear.soul - Sabrina wanted to up her cutting game so she reached out to us about having the right tools… We talked on the phone and even though Sabrina is in Florida and we’re based in LA we could still fit her with the perfect set of shears to help her with her goal of becoming a true craft hairstylist. 
After looking at Sabrina’s work and discussing what she wants to achieve with her cutting now and in the future. We then selected around a dozen pairs of scissors to send Sabrina to see and feel.  Each pair was carefully selected to fit her hand like a glove and we included various blade shapes for Sabrina to be able to perform any task that she can imagine with ease…  We then had a zoom meeting to discuss each shear’s functions and capabilities and that was that! Out of the dozen or so shears that we sent her, Sabrina selected about 5-6 pairs. 
We’ve had a number of new followers join us lately, and we’d like you to know that we’re here to give you the best possible experience in choosing, selecting, buying and receiving your scissors.  We’re only a phone call away on 213-425-8066. All you have to want is a great pair of scissors and we’ll make sure it fits you like a glove.  We’ve got you!

Enjoy your beautiful new scissors Sabrina. We know you’re going to make hair happen like a champion and we’re looking forward to seeing all of the fabulous haircuts that you’re going to do ✨💫✂️🤍

It’s been great seeing our guys connecting with everyone for the BOSS UP TOUR. If you’re yet to attend one of these classes check out Philip and Alfredo’s IG page for dates.  There is a class at the end of this month in Chicago followed by an LA class… Where would you like to see them next? 

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the Wolff Shear that Philip is using in this video and every video that he makes… Look at how cleanly it cuts without pushing the hair and how effortlessly it slides along the hair.  This is all do to the type of steel we’ve used and also the angle that we’ve created of the convex blades to make slicing a breeze.  Point cutting, scissor-over-comb, chipping, slide cutting all made easy with this one shear.

The devil is in the details 😈✨💫✂️
Repost: boy.courtneyhair 
Detailing is one of my favorite parts of a haircut. Here I’m using zenmasterscissorsusa to channel cut, slide cut, and deep parallel point cut superficial layers and remove weight from the undercut portion of the hair. The result is a strong shape with lots of internal movement.

Take the strain off your wrist and hand with the all new ZK18-STORM 🌩️🌪️
If you like point cutting or want to be able to do it with ease then the STORM has to be your go-to shear.  The crane handle is angled to perfection so that the shear tips into point cutting with absolutely no effort.  Scissor-over-comb is also a breeze.  These shears easily allow your wrist to get to the perfect angle for a perfect blend of scissor-over-comb every time! Cutting perfectly straight lines is also a task that the ZK18-STORM  performs with ease! Slice, slide, chip and detail with surgical precision. Do it all in ultra comfort with the Storm’s 3D handles which are designed to fit pretty much all hand like a glove!  The balance of the scissor is so perfect - lightweight yet powerful and crafted to perfection with Japanese ATS-314 💪🏼✨💫⚔️✂️
