About ARC

ARC Scissors

Handcrafted in Japan, ARC Scissors offers the highest quality Japanese scissors created by craftsmen who are as passionate about making scissors as you are about cutting hair.

When it comes to handcrafting scissors for professional hairstylists, ARC™ Scissors refuses to take shortcuts.

 Made in Japan, never on a factory line. 

Every one of our scissors is handmade in Japan and to prove the origin, the country of Japan places a Made in Japan stamp on the scissor itself, along with a unique serial number and patent mark, offering traceability to the steel factories in Japan.

ARC Scissors- Made in Japan

Every ARC Scissor Takes 3-6 Months to Make

Every pair of our scissors is handmade in Japan and each takes at least 3 months to create, while our Paragon II takes 6 months to handcraft. The Japanese craftsman making your scissor comes from generations of scissor craftsmanship handed down for generations before him. This unmatched attention to detail and exceptional quality is what sets ARC™ Scissors apart.

Don't Be Fooled

Most scissor companies create the illusion that their scissors are Made in Japan by using a Japanese name and/or Japanese packaging- sometimes even Japanese steel. But don't be fooled. Most of these scissors are made on a factory line in China or Korea and cost less than $50 to manufacture. Yet, they'll charge you a Japanese price tag of $1,000 or more per scissor.  That's right. They pay less than $50 to manufacture it and you pay $1,000 to buy it!   So, check your scissors and see if they have the Made in Japan stamp. If they don't say Made in Japan, you can be assured they were made on a factory line in China or Korea.
