* In what country are Designdoo scissors made in?

All Designdoo scissors in our Damascus(416 layers) is forged made in USA and the other Collections are forged and made in Japan. Designdoo scissors from our Collection and accessories are made and finished in South Korea and Japan and designed in AustraliaJapanSouth Korea  

Wherever the Designdoo scissors are manufactured or finished they must meet high standards of steel quality and craftsmanship.

  • What type of steel is used to make Designdoo Scissors?

We only choose the very highest types of Japanese steel to make Designdoo scissors.

Some examples are USA Damascus(416 layers) Takefu Japan VG-10.VG-1 Japan forged V10 Hitachi Japan Super cobalt ATS-314 and Japan forged ATS-314. These are the "ferrari" steel types for hair cutting shears.

There is a reason why we put "Precious metal" on our logo. This is because we only
choose the VERY HIGHEST possible grades of steel to make our shears.

Where is the Designdoo scissors  head office?

  • How do I choose what shears to buy?

Start with a good quality of steel. Inexpensive scissors will actually cost you more in the long run by more frequent sharpening requirements. Besides they are more difficult to use and will not give the results you want in a professional hair style. Next make sure they fit your hand. Unless you are using a long blade for a specific cut a blade that is too long will cause excess fatigue and the risk of cutting yourself. Then look for a handle style that feels good. Your shears should not cause strain or stress to your hand thumb wrist or forearm while cutting. If you already experience pain in your working hand or you feel like you may experience pain in the future buy a shear that is ergonomic.
