Spirit - Essence
- Hand crafted from Japanese 440C Steel providing the blades with superior durability and beautifully sharp cutting edges helping you produce your finest and most creative work with seamless ease.
- The Essence features a Tapered Blade which retains the weight at the back of the blade that subsequently provides a slim surface and power to the cutting edge. The Ultra Precision Tip (0.2 - 0.29cm) and Ultra Precision Blade (0.8 - 1.04cm) make for a slim and lighter feeling scissor that excels in precise and intricate cutting techniques, perfect for both Hairdressers and Barbers.
- The 100% Japanese convex blade edge is razor sharp making the Essence a specialist in all cutting techniques.
- The Ergonomic Off-Set Handle design increases hand comfort and therefore reduces the risk of developing RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The Essence has a Finger Ring diameter of 2cm and a Thumb Ring diameter of 2cm.
Removable Finger Rest with Finger Bar Separator for enhanced stability and control over the guiding blade.
- The UFO adjustable tension system is flat to the scissors surface and feels effortlessly smooth when cutting.
- 5.5" is a Light-weight scissor (35g - 44g)

We like to keep things simple and as easy for our customers as possible as their satisfaction is our highest priority and we pride ourselves on the Service we offer.
We understand that choosing new scissors can be difficult and sometimes they may not feel as comfortable as hoped, either not suiting your hand or cutting style; which is why we have a Return Policy that protects both you the Customer and us Akito Scissors.
We offer our customers a 14 Day Acclimatisation Period ensures you are fully satisfied with your decision and gives you time to trial & test the Scissors performance. During the 14 Day Acclimatisation Period you must notify us if you desire to return your purchase and you will then have a 3 Day Period within which to return the product. Once you dispatch the product you need to notify us by email confirming when it has been sent and the tracking information related to the order.
All shipment charges on Returned products are at the expense of the customer, not Akito Scissors.
Once we receive the returned order, we will notify you immediately; check and assess the condition in which we have received the returned order.
Refunds: We meticulously prepare, check and test our products before we send them to our customers; giving us full confidence in the immaculate condition that you receive the product in. We therefore have requirements in place if you wish to receive a Full Refund: in order to qualify for a Full Refund you must return the Item exactly as it was received, completely new, in its original packaging with proof of purchase and not one single bit of damage.
* In the case that the above requirements are not met then we will not be able to offer a Full Refund; this means that there is damage of some sort on the Scissor. If the damage to the Scissor is preventing it from cutting or performing optimally, we will then attempt to rectify, returning them to working order which in some cases, depending on the type of the damage (cosmetic or blade) , maybe impossible. Once this process has been optimally concluded we will then return the product to the customer with no refund.
*Shipping & Delivery*
We are committed to providing the best possible service to our customers and therefore, unlike other brands, don't want you (the customer) to front the full cost of the shipping of your order. We therefore charge a contribution towards the shipping costs relating to your order but not the full cost, meaning that we share the cost with you. Once your parcel has been dispatched we will send you an email with the relating tracking information so you can track it every step of the way.
