Mizutani USA / Motik, Inc. guarantees sharpening that is why we send it back to the factory to be sharpened by the person who in addition is a professional sharpener but also knows how to make scissors.

Why Factory Sharpening is important

Every single factory such as Hikari, Mack, etc. has their own degree of the angle on each individual blade – we refer to it as “Factory Angled Blade.” Therefore, factory sharpening is recommended to preserve the longevity of Mizutani scissors. Only factory-authorized sharpeners know the specific degree of every angle in the blade allowing them to remove a minimum amount of steel.
