KASHO Hair Styling Shears are manufactured from a special high-carbon stainless steel alloy, which
has superior resistance to corrosion and wear. The steel is variously compounded with Molybdenum,
vanadium, cobalt and other elements to achieve state-of-the-art characteristics. KASHO's advanced
heat treatment and sub-zero quench techniques assure long-term blade sharpness and durability.
KASHO's unique Ultimate Edge is made possible by its proprietary state-of-the-art manufacturing
process that uses sophisticated metal-forming and heat-treating equipment. After hot-forging the
steel to the desired shape, the blade is heat-treated in a space age atmospheric chamber. The blade
is then triple-tempered to its optimum working hardness using an isothermal process.
The basic purpose of heat-treating is to radically change the molecular structure of the steel, while
retaining as many of the original characteristics of the alloy as possible. Because Kasho uses
advanced heat-treating technology, the purity of the stainless steel is safeguarded, and the
resultant crystalline structure of the Kasho blades is second to none.
Kasho has developed a computerized grinding machine with laser sensors to guide the blade through the
hollow grinding process - thus assuring absolute accuracy in shaping the proper curvature of both
the inner concave blade surface and the exterior convex surface.Every surface is hand polished to a
flawless mirror finish. Top and bottom blades are selected, and then hand-worked until they become a
perfect matching set. They are meticulously hand-honed, assembled, and set by a "Shujin" master, in
a laborious, time-consuming process and finished to his own exacting standards. Taken together,
these elements represent the highest expression of technology and craftsmanship.
quality management is your assurance of KASHO's continuing commitment to excellence. KASHO's
technical facilities include extensive computer-aided-design and test laboratories, where engineers
and designers continuously advance new ideas to improve the materials, dynamics, aesthetics and
manufacturing process of KASHO Hair Stylist Shears.
