From
         A to Z

A

Alignment
Optimum performance is only possible if the cutting edges are optimally aligned to each other and they are located consistently on top of each other. Otherwise, the scissors will push or bend the hair.

B

Blade
The blade refers to the outer sides of the upper and lower blade, i.e. the two halves of the scissors.

Buffer stop
Spacer between the two scissors rings: a small plastic or rubber knob cushions the impact of the two grip rings.

C

Classic
The symmetrical position of the two scissors eyes provides a traditional feeling when cutting.

Coated scissors
High-quality coating prevents direct contact between the skin and the steel for protection in case of nickel allergy.

Convex blade
The convex blade grind describes a certain processing of the blade on the outside. This results in the outwardly curved shape as the basis for sharpness and cut retention.

Crane
Short, downward angled thumb handle for ergonomic working posture and a relaxed feeling while cutting. The arm, neck, and shoulder muscles remain relaxed. 

Cutting edge
The cutting edges on the upper and lower blade makes the scissors function.

E

Eyes
The opening for thumb and ring finger at the end of the blade to operate the scissors. 

F

Finger hooks
For the support of the little finger, which supports the guidance of the scissors in this way.

H

Hollow grinding of the blade (inside)
The cutting edge obtains a sharper angle. This makes it even sharper and ideal for slicing.

Honing
More sharpness due to 4-fold fine polishing of the cutting edges plus manual honing. Enables slicing techniques.

I

Integrated cutting edge
The cutting edge fits seamlessly into the blade and glides gently through the hair

J

Joint
The point at which the two halves of the scissors are connected to each other is called the stud.

L

Left hand (Left)
Left-handed scissors are like the reflection of right-handed scissors. It supports the natural movements and thus enables a relaxed working posture. 

M

Microserration
Classic blades whith a flat cutting edge angle for excellent sharpness. Microserration on one blade avoids slippage of the hair.

Modelling scissors
Toothed on one side, for cutting transitions, structuring the hair, achieving supporting hair effects and fringed contours.

Movable thumb ring
Special feature for added ergonomics. The movable thumb ring follows the natural movement of the thumb during cutting and ensures total relaxation.

N

Nickel allergy
>> Coated scissors

O

Offset
The offset position is a form in which both scissor rings are offset. This relieves the arm, neck and shoulder muscles.

P

Prism (V-shaped)
V-shaped thinning teeth lend a smooth, easy feeling when closing. Squeezing and pushing of the hair is avoided. The hair is cut easily and precisely.

R

Rotating insert ring
The rotating insert ring moves with the thumb. Friction and pressure marks are prevented without affecting the sense of the scissors.

S

Screw
The screw holds the two halves of the scissors together and its adjustment keeps them under tension. A good screw connection is characterized by a screw that is individually and easily adjustable

Shank
The connection piece between the eye and the blade.

Steel
High-quality steel is the basis for JAGUAR scissors. Depending on the steel quality, different chemical processes are necessary to produce the steel. This is further processed by forging, grinding and polishing to the finished end product, the scissors.

T

Thinning scissors
Scissord blades with teeth on both sides for thinning out the fullness of the hair.

U

Upper and lower blade
The upper and lower blade refer to the two halves of the scissor. The screw, which usually boasts the JAGUAR logo, is located on the upper blade. The lower blade is the counterpart below. Both parts fit together so precisely that they only touch each other at the tip. The hairs are held between the blades without being pressed apart.
