The Story of
First proposal of the word "cut rate" and way of thinking- Senning at that time only indicated the length and scale, and the number of cuts often differed depending on the manufacturer even with the same scale. The "cut rate" was a proposal that was easy to understand. At the time of its release, it became a huge hit product with sales of over 10,000 units, and the word "cut rate" is now commonly used throughout the beauty industry.
"Slide rate" is the percentage of hair that escapes from the blade
From the standpoint of manufacturing a scissor, there are various factors that determine the slide rate, but roughly speaking, it can be said that it is determined by the radius of the blade line and the angle of blade attachment. Based on this, the "slide rate" is expressed in a form that approximates the feeling of a hairdresser.
With the changes in style, cutting techniques have diversified in recent years, making it difficult for beauticians to understand which scissors are suitable for their technique. For example ... I want a scissor like Okappa scissors that doesn't let my hair escape too much, but the scissor escapes too much, or I want to use it for slide cutting, but my hair gets caught ... I also hear a voice like "please" that turns the question into a question. I think this is because there is a big difference between the hair design that hairdressers want to make and the tools they use, and I feel stressed. We can easily make hair design with "slide rate" like "cut rate". Furthermore, it is easy to select the tool with the "slide rate". I would like to propose based on these two points.

A blade with a straight blade line of "slide rate" of 20% does not slip easily, so it is most suitable for blunt cutting mainly with wet cut (base cut).
A blade with a curved "slide rate" of 80% makes the blade slide well, so it is most suitable for cutting with a dry cut.
