What is NARUTO SCISSORS?
We have been making hairdressing scissors by hand since 1963.
Naruto scissors are produced one by one using highly skilled craftsmanship.
Our craftsmen have an inherited expertise of more than 50 years. “Sharpening and Minute adjustments by our craftsmen” and “Our own structure of scissors” reflect on each pair of scissors. This creates the feature of Naruto scissors “Sharpness and a good cutting feeling that lasts longer”.
Mechanism and Structure
Naruto scissors last longer
The important part which opens and closes scissors is called the contacting point (ride).
Naruto scissors uses our original contacting pivot point called “Three-dimensional circular ride”.
Due to the special resin packing in the center of the Threedimensional circular ride, there is less friction between the packing and the blades. This reduces stress on your hand and the packing will not wear down the blades. So, Naruto scissors can be used for a long time.
There are 4 types of handles.
- Hennessy Handle -
Hennessy type is our original handle. It has the effect of reducing the fatigue on the wrist and elbow when cutting.
- Straight Handle -
It’s standard offset type.
- Eyeglass Handle (symmetrical) -
Symmetrical eyeglass type.
- Eyeglass Handle (left-right asymmetric) -
This eyeglass type is slightly asymmetric. It’s easy to use even for people who are familiar with offset handles.
The difference between Offset Handle and Hennessy Handle
The shape of scissors
The features and characteristics
of thinning scissors
The tips of teeth are the shape that doesn’t leave a line where it was cut
The hair goes in (1)~(5) ridges in order, so our thinning scissors can create natural finish.
The hair goes smoothly through the scissors without getting caught
Because B intervals are wider than A intervals.
The design of the thinning scissors makes it difficult to damage the hair
The sides of the teeth are planed off making the edges rounded. This is also the reason the hair can go through the scissors and not get damaged.

Kinds of Thinning Scissors
There are two blade types of scissors, type S/regular type and type B/reverse type. The reverse type, type B, can give you a very smooth cutting of the hair, allowing the hair to fall naturally when trimming using scissors over the comb technique (Kariage).
Care of New, Repaired and
Care of New Scissors and Scissors after Repair and Maintenance
When you first use your scissors, metallic dust will come out. The metallic dust causes many problems to the blades.
We ask that the customer pre- condition scissors in the beginning and after repair and maintenance.
At that time, avoid cutting thick hair, start with a blunt cut for at least the first 5 to 10 cuts. Please make sure the hair is either wet or soft if it is dry. While cutting or after each use, please wipe the blades to remove the metallic dust with the chamois leather. Continue to pre-condition your scissors with about 10 to 20 more cuts. After this, your scissors are ready for slide cut, stroke cut, chop cut etc.
Please wipe your scissors 2 to 3 times daily using the leather chamois. This is very important for keeping your scissors’ sharpness and cutting feeling.
Repair and Maintenance
Please send your Naruto scissors to our factory. Please do not repair and maintenance your scissors with another company or local sharpener other than NARUTO SCISSORS. This will lose Naruto scissors’ characteristic and we can’t guarantee the quality. We recommend once every one to three years maintenance. We basically ask you to send scissors for repair and maintenance through our distributer. However, if there are no distributors in your area, you can send your scissors directly to NARUTO SCISSORS’ factory.

Registration System for our Customer;
NARUTO SCISSORS have been applying the serial number system for every single pair of scissors made by us since we started the scissors’ company. We registered the name of the purchaser, the model and the date the scissors were purchased, into our log book. This information management system is quite helpful and useful for repairing our scissors, even minor adjustments and for antitheft (burglar-proof). Customer’s registration records will not be open to any third party without the customers’ agreement according to the legality on a proper law. However, if a provided company which holds the duty to protect privileged information, in cooperation with us or consignment production in producing scissors, we may open those necessary information upon us under the controlling of management.
