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.

The shorter length is ideal for precision cutting techniques. Experience a better way to work with our Signature Series Swivel Shear.

Product Details

Work Without Pain

Do you feel pain in your wrist, neck or shoulder at the end of a long day behind the chair? Do you suffer from carpal tunnel or other repetitive strain conditions?

If so, moving to a swivel shear will transform the way you work! Our forward set thumb design allows you to maintain a neutral and natural hand position that minimizes strain. With the rotating swivel thumb, you can direct the blades with your fingers, not your whole upper body. Instead of twisting your shoulder to cut length or layers, keep your elbow relaxed at your side and simply rotate the thumb ring. Protect your thumb tendon, wrist, neck, shoulder and back by keeping your wrist straight and your elbow low throughout the haircut.

Protect Your Elbow with 5 Cutting Positions

These versatile shears can be used in five different cutting positions, allowing you to achieve any angle without ever raising your elbow above 90 degrees.

Detailed Precision Cutting

Don’t sacrifice function for ergonomics. Working with your elbow supported against your body not only keeps you safe, it also gives you added control when precision cutting. The shorter blades on the 5.5” swivel shear let you get closer to the head to create clean lines and exquisite detail.

Love my new shears!

These are my first swivel shears, I normally use my streamline shears and love them too! I was worried these would be hard to adjust to but they are not, they feel great in my hand are super comfortable on my wrist and shoulder. Super smooth and cut like butter! I absolutely love them!

Favorite shears

Love these shears very comfortable to work with. My only problem is the ring guard slipped out while using them ... will not stay in ... so they flop around on my finger ... Now I'm on the hunt for one that fits properly.
