As a product is supposed to be made to fit according to certain audiences demand, customer makes sure that the product he/she is buying should be of best quality keeping in a reasonable and affordable price range. I am a professional hair stylist and have been using different types of hair cutting shears for a long time now. I was shocked when I ordered a hair cutting shear from hattori hanzo which was for $600 and I was not fully satisfied with the quality of the steel used in a blade. The same shear is available in just $200 on iShears.com. I ordered and used it and guess what? The quality of that shear was so good that its been a year now, and my shear still cuts very fine and smooth. Havent had any complaint about the shear that I got from iShears.com
As I also conduct hair cutting workshops, I never recommend hattori hanzo shears to my students. I dont want them to waste their money for just practicing using shears. We use iShears in our workshops as its shears have extra sharp long-lasting cutting edges.
