Cut Hair In Any Position
With Your Elbow Down!

Discover Why Using a Swivel Shear
is More Comfortable

These swivel shears are perfect for you if you suffer from carpal tunnel or similar repetitive strain conditions.

They were designed to transform the way you cut hair, allowing you to keep your body in a natural position and your elbow down at your side at all times instead of rotating your shoulder when cutting layers, for example.

These shears help to protect your wrist, neck, thumb tendon, shoulder, and back.

“I have the beginnings of carpal tunnel, and changing over to these shears has been a GAME changer! I love the swivel, it has made it so much easier to get into comfortable cutting positions and is much more functional.”

Why Should You Be Using
a Swivel Shear?

Learn The 5 Swivel Shear
Cutting Positions

A swivel scissor will provide you with increased mobility, relief from shoulder, wrist, and finger pain, and a wide variety of cutting positions that will drastically reduce the physical effects of cutting hair over time.

The rotating thumb feature keeps your wrist and elbow protected and also reduces the need to work your body into uncomfortable positions in order to cut at specific angles.

If you’ve been doing hair for a long time and suffer from repetitive motion injuries, swivel scissors could be beneficial to you. They are also a great option to start out with if you want to prevent any sort of fatigue-related injury down the line.

What Makes
a Great Shear?

A great swivel shear should feel good in your hand, stay sharp, and hold up over time to the rigors of cutting hair. Sounds simple, right? But few shears meet these standards.

Discover what makes Sam Villa® Swivel Shears the best of its kind.

Stays Sharper Longer

The shear world is split into two major players: German steel, known for its toughness and durability; and Japanese steel, known for its razor-sharp edge.

We wanted to create the best shear, which is why we developed a high-carbon Japanese steel featuring molybdenum alloy to create the ultimate hybrid.

The end result? A shear that stays incredibly sharp, but will also remain durable over the long haul.

Steel & Carbon Balance

Signature Series Swivel Shears are made from an alloy of Molybdenum, Cobalt, and Vanadium, which in Japan is called either VG10 or ATS314.

We utilize our high-tech cryogenic tempering process, further extending its edge life. This process is what makes our shears incredibly sharp, yet resilient to wear and tear.

The molybdenum alloy keeps the cobalt from becoming too brittle and the vanadium increases the wear resistance.

Swivel Shear Features

Perfectly Balanced

The blade is designed with a balanced weight to facilitate deep point cutting, condensed cutting, and all layering techniques.

Rotating Thumb

Thanks to the forward thumb design and rotating thumb, your hand is always in a natural and neutral position, reducing strain injuries.

Dual Finger Tangs

Our unique dual finger tang stabilizes the top blade allowing for straighter, more precise lines using just the thumb blade.

Handcrafted Down
to the Smallest Detail

Your body is the most important and most fragile tool that you own. Protect it and your ability to do what you love with a shear that works with your body, not against it.

Sam and his team spend many months perfecting this swivel shear design — from the handle and blade design, to the rotating thumb and stabilizing finger tangs.

At every step along the way, our shear was hand-tested and refined by Sam and other trusted hair designers with many decades of experience. They went through many different prototypes until we knew we had created perfect swivel shear.

The final result? A swivel shear that’s comfortable to hold, easy to maneuver, sharp enough to cut through any hair type, and a blade that stays sharper longer.
