The SYMMETRY 30/2 Reversible Texturizer is a premium thinning and texturizing scissor that allows for various degrees of weight removal. It features 30 teeth with 2 grooves per tooth, removing approximately 20% to 25% when used at 90 degrees to the hair like in scissor-over-comb cutting. When used for dry texturizing techniques, it can remove between 10% and 25% depending on the angle of the blade while cutting.
What Makes It Different:
This is a reversible scissor and can be used from both sides (flipped). Flipping or "reversing" the scissor allows you to cut hair differently with the teeth pointed up or down. This scissor will effortlessly slice and slide-cut through hair with zero drag or pull.
100% handmade from cold forged Hitachi ATS314 Japanese steel
Butterfly "eyeglass" handle that is precisely carved out to allow for perfect positioning with each of the four basic hand positions. The "eyeglass" handle allows for reversible use making it two scissors in one.
Best Used For:
Thinning and texturizing techniques. This scissor can be used at 90 degrees to the hair to remove approximately 20% to 25% with each cut, or angled to the hair to remove between 10% to 25%. The angle of the scissor will determine the amount of hair removal with each cut. We also recommend using this scissor for slice-cutting and slide-cutting techniques.
Most texturizing scissors are made by EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) Wire Cutting at a 90-degree angle. This method allows scissor-makers to create 10 blades at one time.
Our patented Reversible Texturizers are tilted 20 degrees, then cut at a 70-degree angle instead of the traditional 90-degree cutting angle, so only one blade can be made at a time.
This procedure takes much longer to make a scissor, but because of these steps, our Reversible Texturizers can be used for slice-cutting with zero drag or pull. This procedure of wire cutting takes 3 hours for just one blade!
Tension Screw System:
The SYMMETRY 30/2 Reversible Texturizer is fit with our Japanese stainless steel flat tension screw and is adjustable with a coin or screwdriver. This advanced tension system distributes precise and even tension from pivot to tip and is extremely stable, delivering perfect balance day after day.
I purchased these texturizers at The BTC Show and they are a game changer! I can remove the most delicate amount of bulk from the finest blonde hair and no matter how I do it, they never leave a hard line in the hair. These are my favorite texturizers for blending transitions in my mens haircuts and for blending extensions too. I can't wait to get my hands on the 10/10 texturizers next!
I like my ARC 30/2 Texturizers because the way it feels in my hand is very ergonomic. The weight removal is minimal, making blending and weight removal effortless
