Sasakki is a pure brand in Korea. It is proudly made in South Korea.
The brand name Sasakki is two combined Korean words meaning soft sound when cutting hair “사사삭 [sasasak]” and a person’s ability to cut sensibly “끼[kki]”.
It is widely believed that Sasakki was a Japanese brand. When the company was established and wanted to market a domestic brand of hairdressing scissors, Japanese brand names were very popular at that time. As a result, it was perceived that Sasakki was a Japanese brand. Over the course of time, it was strategized to use a pure native brand when distributing in Japan but it was not well received in the market.
Interestingly, the Japanese sounding brand name Sasakki did phenomenally well in the market and continued to grow ever since then. Nevertheless, Sasakki is proudly a pure Korean brand and comparable if not better than competitors with more things to come in the future.
Distinctive hair styles require a variety of scissors and different cutting techniques.
Curved blades makes it easier to cut around the ears and for shaping hair styles.
Longer blades are suitable for long hair while shorter blades are better for short styles and thinning scissors are essential for thinning and tapering.
Certain scissors have tiny grooves on one side of the blade’s edge to keep the hair straight while cutting. This type of scissors are typically used for thicker hair.
Good hairdressers tend to have a collection and wide variety of scissors for all kinds of hair type and hair styling.

Maintenance & Care Tips
To help keep your scissors in the very best of shape they need to be used with clean hair only. Hair styling products and unclean hair is going to leave a film on the blades which could dull them quickly after regular use. The blades should really be wiped nice and clean after every single hair cut and also cleaned and oiled frequently. Clean your scissors by using tepid to warm water together with a moderate cleaning agent. Open up the blades wide while cleaning to eradicate any kind of dirt and grime from the full length of the cutting blade. Always rinse them properly and dry by using a soft towel. Just after cleaning put on oil to the blades and open up and close them a couple of times to be able to spread the oil, mop any surplus away.
It is essential that you take care of your hairdressing scissors and treat them as the unique professional tool that they are. Use them just to cut hair, and take care to not ever drop them which may damage the end or bend the blade. Make certain to adjust the tension screw on occasion because it is going to undo with regular use.
The ideal set of hairdressing scissors does not only make it to easier for the hairdresser to cut the required style and to be comfortable enough to utilise for hours on end but high-quality hairdressing scissors are created to last. With the right care and attention they will likely last quite a few years and so the purchase will pay for itself in the end.
To keep your scissors in good condition, please do the following:
- Keep the scissors protected to prevent damage in case of fall.
- For better scissors performance, put a few drops of oil every two or three days.
- Always hold the scissors by the handle to prevent damages to the blade from the sweat of the hands.
- Start cutting after washing the hair.
- Always place the scissors on a support for perfect alignment.
- Use a brush to clean the scissors regularly.
- Never cut paper or any material other than the hair so that the blade does not lose its sharp edges.
- Use the scissors correctly when cutting hair.
Clean your scissors between every haircut. When the blades of scissors are covered with hair, moisture and chemicals, corrosion can occur (Oh yes, stainless steel can corrode). Regular cleaning will help keep the blades sharp longer. Use a soft cloth to wipe your scissors clean.
Oil your scissors at the end of each day. A coating of oil will protect the scissor by helping to keep moisture out; it will also keep the scissors feeling smooth. Use only scissor oil for lubrication. Clipper oil is not recommended because it could be detrimental to the rubber/nylon parts of the pivot, tends to attract dirt, and could actually shorten the life of your scissors. Put a drop of oil in the pivot area and smear some down the length of the inside of each blade.
Adjust your scissors after lubricating them,or whenever they feel too tight or too loose. Proper scissor adjustment is often a matter of personal preference. However, a good rule of thumb is that when the scissors are held open with one blade at right angles to the other in the shape of a cross, the handle that is dropped will just barely move. To adjust a shear you need to tighten / loosen the adjusting screw as needed. Be cautious not to over tighten or over loosen the adjuster as this could damage the shear. Adjust the screw one click (adjuster type) or turn at a time until properly adjusted.
Store your scissors in a safe place when not in use. Secure and store them in a stand or a case where they stay safe and dry when not in use. Never toss your scissors into the drawer unprotected.
Sharpening will either extend their life…or shorten it! Most scissors require sharpening every three to six months. Always take your scissors to a reputable sharpener who is trained to work on haircutting scissors. An inexperienced sharpener or one without the right equipment could destroy your scissors.
Clean, dry and oil your scissors at the end of every day of use. Check your scissors for adjustment, at least once each day of use. Handle your scissors with gentle care. Protect the cutting edges from touching anything except human hair. Record all identifying marks and any serial numbers, in case your scissors are stolen or lost (a digital close-up photograph will be handy). Store and transport your scissors in padded cases or pouches and make sure the blades are closed in order to protect the cutting surface! Always keep your scissors closed except when cutting hair, never place them on a bench with the blades open, as this can nick the edges. Have them professionally sharpened regularly – at least every 6 months.
Don’t let your scissors run out of adjustment. Don’t let your scissors corrode or get dirty. Don’t cut anything except hair with them. Don’t drop or toss your scissors when putting them down. Don’t lend your scissors out. Other people have different hands to you – someone else using your scissors with a hard hand will alter the scissors balance and make them feel different after one haircut! (They don’t care for them as much as you do and might even damage them!) Don’t “pressure cut” (torque the blades together). This means squeezing harder with your thumb when the scissors start to go dull. it will cause excess wear on the scissors if you do so. Don’t allow your scissors to come into contact with any comb, sterilizing solution, or any perm or color or other chemicals, as they will cause corrosion and rusting (pitting!).
Normally, beauty scissors for practice or introductory use have a shelf life period of about one year. It should be resharpened every 2 to 3 months and needs to be replaced every year with new scissors.
Sasakki scissors are made to last for more than 10 years. This is achievable because of our excellent manufacturing technology, superior strength material and after sales servicing.
