Shisato Echo shears are a premium quality Ergonomic shear. It is perfect for the stylist who is having problems with carpal tunnel, tendonitis, shoulder or back problems. The Shisato Echo shear has a very natural handle configuration, as well as great spacing between the thumb and finger rings (which prevent cramping when closing the shear) as well as an extremely bent down thumb ring that allows the stylist to lower the elbow and shoulder dramatically when using the shear. This is a great design for those who probably need a “swivel” thumb shear, but cannot use one. This shear also has a light weight design, thin blades, narrow points for wonderful detail work, hollow ground blades, and Japanese S-1 stainless steel..
