From our craftsmen’s hands to yours.

An Artist is only as good as their tools.

We were hairdressers and barbers just like you, tired of scissor brands overcharging for underperforming scissors. We asked around and found we weren't alone and decided to do something about it.

Guaranteed excellence in every cut.

We assembled a team of specialists and sourced the finest materials to guarantee each Akito Scissor is made to the highest standard for exceptional durability and masterful cutting performance.

We cut out the Middlemen and their Commission Fees.

By cutting out the middlemen we're able to cut out their commissions fees, meaning you save thirty-five percent on average with Akito compared to other scissors brands. 

Helping you be the best you can.

Since our launch in 2016 we've won awards, made thousands of customers happy, and continue to improve every day to provide you with the best cutting tools at the best price to help you be the best you can be.

The future is in your hands.
