Japanese steel is known for its quality. This ancestral notoriety is due to the design of the famous katanas, sabers used by the Samurai warriors, of which the cutting edges were both extreme and soft.
To create high-quality hair scissors, it is therefore essential to select the best Japanese steel. To give the blades a durable and renewable cutting edge, it is important to have a high Rockwell Degree (HRC).
This unit of measure determines the hardness and resistance of the steel. However, the HRC degree cannot be too high or the scissors would break at the least drop, or too low which would result in a poor-quality blade.
You should know that classic hair scissors have a rate of 50 Rockwell Degrees. Takai Technology scissors have a Rockwell Degree that varies between 59° and 65° HRC.
Takai Technology uses 4 types of Japanese steel to manufacture its scissors:
Summun Japanese Steel, the Invitation to Excellence
Powdered or sintered HIP Japanese steel, the signature of High Technology
Super alloy VG-10 Cobalt Japanese Steel, the Fusion of Knowledge
SUS 440C Japanese Steel enriched with Vanadium and Molybdenum, Quality without Compromise
