Yasaka Shears & Scissors Collection

Known for their handcrafted design and high-purity, Japanese stainless steel. 

Explore our selection of Yasaka Shears available at Scissor Tech. Each scissor piece is expertly designed with the needs of professional hairdressers and barbers in mind and features an ergonomic handle that fits your hand perfectly... giving you maximum control for effortless, precision cutting. With their help, you’ll amaze your clients, and soon they’ll be back for more.

State of the art manufacturing equipment, master craftsmen with unrivaled experience, high levels of quality control measures, and unique manufacturing techniques produce the world-famous Yasaka Shears brand. Yes, we are talking about those Yasaka Shears.

Very much like what Joewell Shears is known for, Yasaka scissors have excellent hardness, wear, and abrasion resistance. What's more, all models are famously resistant to corrosion. The clam-shaped blades are hardened and then annealed in a complete vacuum, which sounds fancy but that’s not all - it also provides excellent results. Their flawless construction requires minimal maintenance and will serve you well for years to come. Sure, they are not cheap, but that's because they're one of the few must-have arsenal pieces of any professional hairdresser's scissors collection.

Tips for Using Yasaka Scissors

As we've said before (and will continue to say for a long time), Yasaka scissors and shears are the prime example of Japanese quality and precision, but they're also a real investment. Here's what you can do to ensure you'll be able to use them for years on end:

  • When cutting hair, always handle your Yasaka scissors with care. Think of them as your friends.
  • Sharpen the blades regularly and never cut hair with dull blades, or you’ll risk making your clients unhappy.
  • Clean the scissors after each use - don't allow for various hair products to build up on the blades. It’s a big no-no.
  • Avoid carelessly tossing your Yasaka shears around and dropping them on the floor. That’s another no-no.
  • Store your Yasaka shears and scissors in a dedicated case.
  • Pay attention to the fulcrum screw. Don't loosen it up when it's not necessary. The optimal gap is around 5 millimeters. If it's too wide and the scissors feel too heavy, adjust it carefully by opening Yasaka scissors and closing them without applying any force. Rely on the weight of the scissors entirely.

How to Maintain Your Yasaka Shears and Scissors

Even with high-quality Japanese products you need to remember that proper maintenance is key. You wouldn’t buy a Ferrari and then not clean it at all, at least that’s what we hope. Whenever you're buying a set of hair cutting shears or scissors, be it from Yasaka or any other brand, it won't last you long if you fail to take care of it. Sounds obvious but some people forget about it. Here's what you should do to ensure your professional collection remains usable for the longest time possible:

  • Clean it regularly. Surprise surprise! Hairstyling involves the use of various chemicals. If you let them build up, your scissors will stop performing well, even if you purchase quality Japanese products. After you finish each haircut, wipe your Yasaka scissors with a soft, clean cloth. Do it before you put your hair cutting equipment in your case!
  • Don't forget about lubrication. Not sure how to do that? Open your Yasaka scissors to a 90-degree angle and apply a drop of scissor oil at least once a day. This will keep them corrosion-free, protect them from moisture, and push the dirt, hair, and other chemicals from under the pivot. Avoid using ordinary oils as they contain impurities and leave a sticky residue.
  • Find storage space. If you want your Yasaka shears and scissors to serve you well for a long time, make sure you keep them in a cool, dry place. The best thing you can do is to buy a high-quality case for all your hair cutting tools and accessories. However, that’s not all. Before you put them away, make sure they're completely dry and clean. Close the scissor blades completely to protect the edges, and don't toss them around carelessly. Be nice to them, and they’ll help you earn gratitude and respect from your clients.
  • Check the balance. Make sure your Yasaka scissors have the right tension at least once a day. The tension should be just right if you want to create precise cuts.
  • Keep it sharp. On average, hair cutting shears and scissors should be sharpened between 6 and 24 months. However, you should never cut hair with dull blades. You should avoid that like fire. The best practice is to check the blades after each use and sharpen them whenever you feel your scissors pulling, folding, catching the hair, or doing anything that they should not. Pay attention to the tips as well. If, God forbid, you happen to drop them on the floor, check for accidental damage.
