Ballbearing Category

Welcome to the home of the Kasho Premium Ranges, second to none in the world of cutting tools. Whilst they vary in form and function, from Sagano’s weighty power to Millennium’s weightless smoothness, these scissors all share a unique feature – the ballbearing. Each scissor is a uniquely refined culmination of over 100 years of Japanese heritage, the highest quality natural resources and innovative technologies working in perfect harmony, all tied together at their core by the enclosed ballbearing unit.

GOODBYE HAND FATIGUE

This sophisticated screw system, found at the heart of the scissor, is responsible for incomparably smooth cutting operation. By using an enclosed ballbearing unit, friction between the blades is brought to an absolute minimum. This in turn greatly reduces hand fatigue from the motion of opening and closing your scissor day-in and day-out because you don’t need to apply any additional cutting pressure. Being an enclosed unit, the ballbearing is sealed to make it free from collecting hair, dust and other substances so that nothing affects the precise movement of the scissors. 

Both Millennium and XP feature a more complex Disc Operation System which, in addition to the enclosed ballbearing unit, contains a special spring and a synthetic disc that ensures uniform pressure. Thanks to the replaceable synthetic disc, friction and wear between the blades is reduced even further for a considerably longer lifespan than conventional scissors.

SO HOW DOES IT WORK?

Within the enclosed housing are small metal balls arranged in a circle between an inner and outer wall, and separated by small spacers with just enough room to roll. On the top of the ballbearing rests one blade, and on the bottom of the ballbearing rests the second blade. Each time the scissor opens and closes the balls smoothly rotate between the blades, and because the balls are rolling, the friction that’s normally created by rubbing surfaces is eliminated.
