Scissors that Respond to Your Need for Perfection!

Pure lines and double sharpening system for an exceptional cutting edge.

In addition to Hamaguri convex sharpening, the Summum has the Miracle Slit, micro slits on the edge of the blade. As a result, with straight cutting, the Summum lets you cut very thick strands, with the small slits collecting the hair; with thinning/sliding, the movement is precise and quick with cutting softness.
