Short 60 second video made for Instagram. Slow motion video showing how minute the contact area is on the cutting a scissors edge. This scissors lacks a proper tension setting. You will see the blade pressing & flexing with thumb pressure. Any alteration of the tension setting or excess thumb pressure changes your ability to cut with percision.

Edge Shadow Part 1 & 2

Original

First video is not narrated but has script pointing our the contact area of a scissors blades.

Combined both video really had more title page than necessary. However I did like the script.

It is amazing how accurate scissors can be when we check the tension  daily. Less than 10% of hair cutters even care about adjusting scissors - Really.
