The Phoenix features the exclusive Hikari five finger ergonomic positioning system. The special angles and wider surface area of the handle make the Phoenix Cosmos the most comfortable and stress free scissor ever made. Extra wide triangular pivot with rylon glides provide ultra smooth balance and consistent cutting performance from pivot to the tips. This, combined with patented SEV ionization compounds injected into the proprietary dry cut metal result in a super smooth and effortless cut on wet and dry hair. A special contoured ring behind the thumb hole (ATP) provides more leverage and power when cutting through thick sections of hair. Once again, Hikari sets a new industry standard with the ultimate scissor!
