Best Off-Set
Posted: Wednesday, July 13, 2005 8:12:24 AM

That's tough. I would recommend the following;

True Off-set: Fromm's Discovery Shear usually about $230 but I found it for $226.19 on www.mysalonstore.com

Crane Handle (This is pound for pound better than off-set because you can let your arm rest down while cutting. With off-set you still have the chicken wing with your elbow in the air.) Fromm's Flex Heaven Shear usually about $500 but includes Smart Steel and guaranteed to stay sharp for two years or a million cuts. I found it on www.MySalonStore.com for $389.99 WOW! They also have a bunch of other offset and crane, swivel thumb, ergo bent thumb ring etc. shears for great prices!

It can be very dizzying with all the terms, ergo thumb ring, swivel thumb, off-set, semi-offset, semi-straight, straight, hollow ground, convex. Shears are almost more complex than colors and tints. LOL

I have the 411 on shears so if you have questions let me know.

FROMM! You can't be serious. That's like the your auto mechanic buying his/her tools in the hardware isle of your local grocery store.

I have the Fromm Heavenly's as well. I got mine for $310 apiece at texasbeautysupply.com. (I bought 2 so they gave me a 10 or 15 percent discount (I can't remember). Great shears.
