History: In 1997 Sharpline’s research and development was working hard to find the best quality materials and technology in the world to adapt to hairdressing scissors. In Japan, many of the very best scissors are not made from Japanese stainless steel at all. It is well known in the industry that America and Sweden made superior grades of stainless steel for all sorts of high tech applications. The finest and most expensive of all is TVM NanoCarbide (tm) powder alloy invented and developed in Sweden. Sharpline was the first company in the world to utilize this superb alloy for hairdressing scissors. In 2003 Sharpline introduced the Quantum scissor representing a quantum leap forward in cutting performance. Now made in Seki city Japan, the Quantum has a reputation second to none. These scissors are amongst our top 10, best selling cutting scissors.
