We have undertaken training from many sources in many parts of the world and are always looking to improve craftsmanship through any advances in technique or equipment that may be developed.Your scissors are precious! Our investment in our own training & equipment is in excess of $250,000 just to be able to properly service your scissors. We are perfectionists, and, as passionate about your scissors as you are!
There is no doubt that "Japanese Made" is at the absolute pinnacle of craftsmanship, excellence and precision in Hairdressing Scissors. Their attention to detail and passion for perfection in everything they do is legendary.
Japanese history in bladesmithing dates back to at least 1603 (Samurai) and this knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation.
Very few "Westerners" have ever been invited to learn from Japanese Bladesmiths as they protect their knowledge with tradition. Evan & Rod from Rapid Edge are 2 of only 4 people (that we can confirm the claims of being Japanese-trained) in Australia, that have had this opportunity.
In our last visit to Japan we visited a factory that we have been dealing with for some time and spent a considerable amount of time learning from 4th generation Japanese blade craftsmen.
The Togiya factory has become the "benchmark" of Japanese blade factories. It's owners are the 4th generation and have combined modern computer controlled machining technology (CNC machines) with traditional individual craftsman, edge finishing techniques.
