Sam Villa Shears

sam villa professional shears
offset handleOffset 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. forward set thumb ring 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 edgesMachine made beveled edges are not as sharp and dull faster. hand honed convex bladesHand 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.
