Even the highest quality haircutting scissors require sharpening to stay in shape.
When the edge thickness is more than 5 microns, the scissors start to push or bend hair, resulting in damaged hair. This is the time for the sharpening service.
MICHIKO's core technology brings a 5-micron thickness back dawn to 1 micron or less effectively.
MICHIKO scissors produce an edge of less than 1 micron, which is deal for a clean haircut.
As part of MICHIKO's professional scissor sharpening services, we leverage advanced technology with minimal honing to ensure the sharpest point once more.
We are proud to have designed and developed the world's FIRST and ONLY 3-head sharpening machines - 6" and 8" heads - leveraging cutting-edge Japanese sharpening technology with which no other company can compete.
All scissors are pivoted together under tension with a gap between the two blades. Since sharpened edges slide against each other to cut an obiect, the gap is essential. particularly for hairdressing scissors.
Incorrectly set scissors tend to have tension problems, which can not be fixed by adjusting the pivot screw If your newly sharpened scissors still have problems when you cut hair, it is most likely a tension issue. In most cases, it needs hammering to cut correctly.
If the tension is too tight,
1. It is difficult to cut and feels stiff when opening and closing the scissors.
2. The edges are damaged easily by each other, so the scissors dui quickly.
If the tension is too loose,
1. The cutting power is weak, and it bends hair instead of cutting.
2. The edges wear out quickly since the user pushes the thumb horizontally to cut hair.
MICHIKO® is performing an authentic Japanese hammering technique. Scissors with set problems shorten the life of the scissors.
