Handle Design: Classic Series
Protect Your Body
Do you suffer from pain in your elbow, shoulder, wrist or thumb? Your shears may be to blame. Opposing grip shears have blades that point upward, requiring more input from the elbow and shoulder to get the right angles. Our crane handle design keeps your elbow relaxed and your hand in a neutral, natural position. Minimal thumb movement is needed to place the shear into the hand and to open and close the shear, allowing you to perfect your craft without injury.
Cut With Precision
It’s important to have a wide range of tools at your fingertips to select the perfect shear for each styling technique. The 5.75” shear is excellent for detailed precision cutting. With the smaller blades, you can get closer to the head and create elegant, clean lines your guests will love.
Glide Smoothly Through Wet or Dry Hair
Our strong Japanese Molybednum Alloy blades slide through hair with zero drag or pull. Whether you’re working with wet or dry hair, these handcrafted convex blades start out sharper and hold their edge longer than machine beveled blades. The unique leaf spring tension system expands tension across the length of the blades instead of only at the pivot. The result? Shears that cut through hair like a knife through soft butter.
Hard to get used to , the shape is so unique
Hi there! Here are some tips to help you get used to your crane-handle shear :) Most stylists are not used to a crane handle. They are used to off-set handles and keeping their elbow up and the blade down, cocking their wrist to make the blade be horizontal - keep your elbow at your side from 0 degrees to about 90% at the head - lift when you go to layer and point cut. With the crane handle, work the thumb hole with the TIP of the thumb (it's not good to have your thumb all the way through the ring hole). Some stylists will take the finger rings out to get their thumb to fit all the way into the hole and this is not good. Busy stylists, such as yourself, get frustrated that this design slows them down at first. Try to commit to working healthier - ergonomically. Times varies with how long it will take you to get used to the crane handle and may require a bit of getting used to. Most stylists state it takes 2-4 days to acclimate. Sam's ultimate goal is for you to have a shear that you love and we believe within 7 days you will be in love! Please try to use the shear on your last client of the day for 5-7 days and let us know how you are doing. If you are still experiencing issues acclimating to your new shear, please reply back to this email so we can assist you further. We definitely don't want you to be unsatisfied with your purchase!

For the price they aren’t very good
Signature Series Wet Cutting Shear 5.25 inch
Wonderful shears! Smooth cutting and sharp. They are a tad longer and a bit heavier than my shears in the past. The design is so nice it was an easy transition for my small hands. Love them, the perfect addition to my tool kit. Thank so much

Not for me
I tried them for a week. Couldn’t get the hang of them. I’ve been doing hair for 30 years and I do a lot of texture and point cutting. These shears did not work for me. I couldn’t slide with them or just even get comfortable using them.
Thank you for your review. If you have not done so already, please reach out to our customer care team at email@example.com. Thanks! -The Sam Villa Team
I love the design of how comfortable it fits in my hand, cuts like butter. The only thing is how I have to adjust my technique for backhanded slide cutting as it doesn’t cut universally from both angles.
We are so glad that it fits comfortably! Here are some videos that may help get acclimated better!
