​5 Handle Options For Your Next Beauty Shear

Posted by B. Riggins on

The fax about your shear handles

There are three general types of design with a cutting handle and a couple of variations compared to those you should know before buying your next pair of beauty shears.

1. The opposite handle is the oldest and least ergonomically correct design. The problem with this design is that it forces the thumb under the ring finger, creating a huge amount of stress and pressure on the nerves and tendons.

2. Shear makers have realized that moving the thumb forward was a more ergonomically correct way to make a shear and that the "offset" handle was created. Better, but not yet the best from an ergonomic point of view.

3. Then the "complete shift" or "crane grip" was developed. Move your thumb under the ring finger below the index finger.

This releases all the pressure and stress exerted on the nerves and tendons of the hand and thumb. A lot of our Kenchii beauty shears are made with the Crane handle. Also note that we do not use screws on the finger rests, as they tend to fall. Ours are part of the cut ... one less thing to worry about. 

Our Kenchii Blackjack duo set has the perfect crane handle for those looking for comfort and control. It is a black shear with our level 1 Japanese molybdenum steel. Great for new barbers or stylist with wrist and hand pains.

4. Envy Vibe swivel thumb Kenchii shear is far superior to any other rotary shear thanks to our patented handle design that allows the stylist to have more contact with the shear, offering incredible comfort, control when cutting and is accurate.

The Kenchii Envy Vibe swivel thumb allows the hand, wrist, arm and shoulder to be in a more natural position, which translates into hours of comfortable cutting and less pain and fatigue associated with the use of a more traditional cut or a swivel shear.

Instead of bending the hand in an unnatural position, just close the middle finger against the handle of the shear and point the thumb towards the tip of the blades. The wrist will be straight, putting you in a very comfortable cutting position.

5. The Kenchii Shape Swifter have a slider that adds more comfort ... The sliding / swivel thumb allows even greater freedom of movement for unmatched control and comfort.
