To satisfy professional haircut technique

Those who are playing key roles in the ever-changing fashion industry are, what is called, "Charismatic Beauticians" and are creating stylish hairstyle one right after the other. With supporting their technique, haircut scissors have also evolved altogether.

Blades of haircut scissors are normally opened and closed more than tens of thousands of times with a full sense of speed, and therefore, seem to become parts of beauticians' hands. Since beauticians' expectation toward haircut scissors tends to be extremely high due to their pursuit of sensitive sense of open & close and superb sharpness, scissors are handmade one by one by skilled craftmen. Haircut scissors which are sharpened in the same way of traditional Japanese sword and are made with using special forging technique of Sanjyo city have received an enthusiastic response from both home and abroad. Therefore, It is not too much to say that "KEIUN" was created by "Professional" craftmen who try to meet strong needs of "Professional" beauticians who try to express ultimate beauty.

Damascus steel

It is said that Damascus steel was made by ancient Indian steelmaking for the first time, and many swords made of Damascus steel were taken into European countries as war bounty at the time of expedition of Christian Crusade and enjoyed considerable popularity as mysteries of the Orient. Damascus steel can be categorized into two groups. While multiple layers are separetely seen on the surface of black steel in Europe and America, Japanese Damascus steel makes you see overlaped layers which seem to be cloudy on its mirror surface.

Unlike gorgeously-decorated products, our scissors made of Japanese Damascus steel with natural and mysterious pattern gives us impression of Japanese beauty. Each scissors has its own "face" and its natural flow from the edge of blade to the edge of handgrip depicts auspicious omens motif, namely Japanese "KEIUN" .

Challenge to the world

Japanese sword has been highly popular worldwide for its splendid sharpness; however, there are few opportunities of feeling it at the manufacturing floor of local industry. Inasmuch as we are not manufacturers with our own strong brands, we are trying to sell haircut scissors made out of experienced craftsmanship to the world from this pure manufacturing floor with our own hands. We would like to take this opportunity of challenging to the world with our proud "KEIUN".
