Naturally curves your hand and enables you to cut a pure straight line with just your thumb.
Start out sharper and hold their edge longer versus typical machine beveled blades.
Sam Villa Shears
|Offset handle causes wrist and shoulder strain, leading to possible injury and less career longevity. Requires up to 70% more thumb movement to open and close shears, increasing wrist strain.||The forward set thumb ring and crane handle design places the hand in a natural neutral position which eliminates repetitive stress injuries of the wrist and shoulder.|
|Some types of steel could nick deeper if dropped, forcing you to remove more material to resharpen, which decreases edge life.||Our blades are made from Japanese molybdenum alloy, which is both hard and durable, extending edge life.|
|Machine made beveled edges are not as sharp and dull faster.||Hand honed convex blades start out sharper and stay sharp longer between sharpenings|
|Excess wear at the pivot from metal on metal contact decreases the blade's edge life.||Teflon lining in the pivot point eliminates metal on metal wear, which extends the blade's edge life.|
|Non-stylists and engineers may not take stylist's specific concerns into account when creating their shears.||Stylist, Sam Villa has designed these shears for fellow stylists.|
|May be mass produced with lesser quality or concern for customer satisfaction.||Unsurpassed customer service and product quality because of Sam's commitment to the industry.|
