This is an ideal material as a step up from Stainless or Cobalt alloy. All Sam Villa Signature Series Shears contain Molybdenum as this material can accept a very fine or sharp edge – what our shears are known for.
Heath Note - Nickel: Nickel is added to most alloys, mostly for the high shine you see on all shears and to improve corrosion resistance. Some people are allergic to nickel, which can cause skin irritations. The best solution for stylists who are allergic to nickel and want to still be able to invest in a great performing shear is to dip the handles of shears into a ‘rubber tool handle dip’.
If you choose to dip your shear handles into rubber dip you need to be sure to dip each handle individually.
- Tape off your shear handles with a good paint tape
- Be sure to tape them evenly so the dip looks even on both handles
- Google “rubber dip” and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions
