MADE IN JAPAN
Designed for razor sharp dry cutting, the PARAGON II is 100% handmade from premium cold forged Super Gold Japanese steel. Uniquely handcrafted blade angles are expertly honed using an advanced tempering process that increases performance and edge life and reduces sharpening frequency. The PARAGON II excels at dry cutting techniques such as precision line work, slide cutting, slice cutting, point cutting, texturizing, extension cutting, coarse/curly haircutting and barbering work. The highly ergonomic, balanced handle provides maximum scissor control and cutting comfort while the advanced Japanese tension system is easily adjustable and precisely distributes tension from pivot to tip.
"The PARAGON II is my favorite scissor. It's super precise, making it really great for detailing. Honestly, there is nothing as sharp as these. The blades are literally like razor blades." @chrisappleton1
"The new PARAGON II is officially the sharpest scissor I have ever used. The weight of the blade is amazing! You have control for line work, they slide cut effortlessly and the tip of the blade cuts through dry hair like butter when point cutting. The perfect all-around scissor that can do everything!” @buddywporter
"The PARAGON II is hands down the best scissor I have ever used. Ideal for someone who loves to cut hair dry, the design of these shears is much more streamlined and efficient compared to the bulky size of other dry cutters. They are my go-to scissor I can use on wet or dry hair, are perfectly balanced and stay sharp for months.” @chrisjones_hair
“The 6” Paragon II is smooth and easy to control for dry cutting & precision work. The thin, lightweight design is perfect for all types of line work, texturizing and detailing and the blade design works well for cutting hair both wet and dry. Amazing all-around scissor.” @matt.swinney
“The PARAGON II is my go-to shear because I tend to do 90 percent of my haircuts dry. They cut laser-sharp lines with ease, the weight is amazing and I love how they’re flush and not bulky. They are amazing for multiple texturizing techniques and they work through hair with ease dry or wet.” @wesdoeshair
"I would feel lost without my PARAGON II scissors! They're my go to scissors for both wet and dry cutting. I love their slender body for precision cutting. I can get so close and tight to my cutting lines and I don't have to worry about anything bulky getting in the way of a clean perfect line. They are the sexiest, sharpest scissors I've owned. I love them!" @brianaciseros
Sharp on wet or dry hair
I love it! Very comfortable easy!
I just love my new Paragon ||.
They’re the sharpest scissors I’ve ever had and I’ve had quiet a few throughout my career .
I’m an educator at an institute as well as doing hair behind the chair. Helping my students and working with their shears is always such a shock because my own personal shears (the ARC’s) have me so spoiled. Sometimes when I’m handling a guest with a student and I’m using their shears, I forget I can’t just go right in like I can with my ARC Scissors. If you’ve never used a premium shear and you are on the fence- or you are a new stylist who doesn’t know whether or not to invest so much money in to a good shear, I can tell you they are worth it. I’m so obsessed with these, I literally baby them. They are always kept in the ARC box when not in use, they are cleaned AND oiled after EVERY HAIRCUT. I have allowed the few people I trust to use them and they all love them. I highly recommend these.
The Paragon sword is a beautiful shear. So sharp. Great for dry and wet cutting!
