Best professional Japanese hair shears

Created to be better, for you and for the planet.

We created Akito because we were tired of brands overcharging and underdelivering, instead we focused on making the highest quality and best professional shears, to sell them at the best possible price and to do so in the most environmentally focused way possible, and that's exactly what we did.

Great things take time.

From developing the initial concepts to designing handles to engineering the blades to expertly honing the supremely sharp cutting edges to engraving the authenticity numbers to our rigorous post-production testing, a total of one-hundred and fifty different manufacturing processes go into making each pair of Akito Scissors.

We take the time to do things correctly without compromise in our pursuit for perfection every step of the way because great things do in-fact take time.

There are many factors contribute to these injuries from the constant use of your hands, elbows, shoulders and back to being on your feet all day every day. However, of all these causes non have a more detrimental impact than restrictive and poorly designed professional scissors handles which lead to severe injuries such as RSI, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tendonitis.
