A great set of trimming scissors is a necessity: for this reason Beard & Bates has designed, developed and hand-crafted some of the best shears money can buy. Our 1878 Black Label Shears were inspired by classic 19th Century grooming scissors which were prized possessions carried by cavalry commanders who favored long and intimidating facial hair. Taking a cue from the fact that Cavalry soldiers' tools of the trade were carbines, pistols and sabers, we created a unique embossed genuine leather holster/scabbard to complement these fine shears. The best modern steel is Japanese, and the1878 Black Label Shears are crafted from the finest J2 420 Japanese steel and heat treated to Rockwell Hardness of 55-56. The scissors are 4.5" in total, currently TSA approved for travel, and the blades are razor sharp convex edge blades, which are hollow ground to make precision cuts, and require no resharpening. This quality level is on par with profession hair cutting scissors which cost $250-$500. The traditional ergonomic design enables you to put your ring finger through the hole, use the two indentations to rest your index and middle fingers, all while allowing your pinky to sit atop the brass finger rest. This provides one much more fluid control when trimming. It had become historically common for Calvary forces to wear imposing facial hair, whether it be long mustaches or full beards, so as to appear more imposing to the enemy, and so specific appearance was an important "weapon." Weapon or not, your facial hair will benefit from this quality holstered set of shears.

    These are awesome. After having some sub-par beard scissors I opted for these, and they are classy, high quality and stylish. They are also the perfect size for trimming my beard and with the cool leather case I can even just put them in my pocket if I need. Get them!
