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.
Total 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.
