Here are the details for the entire line-up of Sam Villa shears!

SIGNATURE SERIES - ALL AVAILABLE IN TRUE RIGHT HAND AND LEFT HAND
All Sam Villa Signature Series Shears are made of 100% Japanese molybdenum alloy, which has been compression-forged for strength and durability.

5.75” &  6.25“ WET CUTTING SHEARS 7” DRY CUTTING SHEARS:
  •  Crane Handle: Designed for ergonomic comfort and precision control. Keeps elbow in a downward  position versus an opposing grip shear that forces the elbow into a raised, stressful position

  •  Handcrafted Convex Blades: Start out sharper and hold edge longer versus typical machine-beveled  blades 
  • Leaf Spring Tension System: Extends the edge life of the shear 
  • Teflon Lining In Pivot Point: Eliminates metal on metal grinding extending the life of the shear 
  • ALL Sam Villa Shears can be used on wet or dry hair - the 7" Shear is designed with a power ridge on the top of both blades enabling effortless cutting through dry hair especially with compressed sections. When cutting dry hair with the 5.75" and 6.25" Shears, smaller sections are recommended for best results.

ARTIST SERIES SHEARS - 6.25" - AVAILABLE IN RIGHT HANDED ONLY
Designed for the discerning artist and hairdresser, Sam Villa Artist Series takes all the ergonomic benefits from the Sam Villa Signature Series and builds upon them with highly sculpted handles and contoured blades allowing for incredible comfort, control, and flexibility. The blades are a unique blend of three Japanese materials that provide a super fine precision edge, which lasts through even the most punishing salon schedules.  
 
A flat line, ball bearing tension system and full polymer lining in the pivot point guarantee a long life of flawless and balanced tension. This shear is the result of a 2-year passion project for the Sam Villa Team and underwent constant testing and refinement to release a shear that is the ultimate expression of quality, ergonomics, and value.
  • Blend of Cobalt, Molybdenum Alloy and Carbon for long edge life, toughness and edge refinement.
  • Sculpted Crane Handle for maximum flexibility comfort and control.
  • Handcrafter/Sculpted Convex Blades applied by hand and polished to reflect the skill of the craftsman.
  • Forward Set Thumb Position puts the hand in a neutral position to reduce repetitive wrist and shoulder strain injuries.
  • Flat Line Tension System with internal ball bearings provides stabilization, prevents wear and maintains perfect tension across the length of the shear.
  • Fully Lined Polymer Pivots provide a wider polymer surface extending the life of the shear by eliminating metal-to-metal contact.
