Please make scissors like this!
“I want scissors that are light and fit my hand.” The TWIG is the realisation of this wish. Based on feedback of female hair dressers working in salons all over the world, we have thoroughly improved details such as the blades, the width of the handles, and the manner in which they withdraw from the hair. Thus was born a pair of scissors with excellent balance and flexibility. The narrow point of the blades makes the TWIG ideal not only for blunt-cuts, but also for point-cuts and thin-cuts. And when a light style is your goal, these scissors are a handy tool. Recommended for those who prefer narrow scissors or for men who have small hands, this range of scissors also features an “extension” model to meet the needs of users who want slightly wider handles.
- The slim handles are easy to hold and can be turned quickly.
- These are user friendly scissors which are good for detail work.
- Many female hair dressers’ opinions have been taken into account with these scissors.

EXTRAMARISE® is a proprietary heat treatment ideally suited for haircutting scissors that was developed by MIZUTANI based on long years of accumulated data and experience. The same steel material can have totally different performance depending on the heat treatment used. Therefore, to maximize the special qualities of the rare metals (cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) we’ve added to our products to the greatest extent possible, and achieve the ideal metal for scissors, (*hardening, tempering, sub-zero processing) and other complete temperature management procedures are essential. To bring out the distinct characteristics of materials, and manufacture a blade with the ultimate strength required for haircutting scissors, we at MIZUTANI have implemented our own proprietary heat treatment using the ideal temperature for scissors: EXTRAMARISE® processing.
- ORGANIC DESIGN
The handles are so designed that they look nonmetallic, alive and organic. You may feel some warmth from the three-dimensional, twisted handles, and once touched, you would not like to part them from your hand.
- DISK DRIVER
Compact and easy to turn, this is a flat type driver for UFO screws. This screwdriver is included with all scissors with the mark shown.
