"In the past, I have owned several different brands of shears, including several that were new and improved designs. When I attended a hair show in Chicago, I looked at most of the booths and when I tried The "Black Panther" from Hioshi, they felt like they were made just for me. Couldn't be more pleased.

Last January I bought a set of Barber Shears from Hioshi on line and I was naturally skeptical since it was the first time I've ordered from Hioshi, but as soon as I placed my order, I got an email from the owner that opened lines of communication and with each step of the way he let me know what was happening. I couldn't have been happier but then I got the shears and they are amazing. The serrated edge and ball bearing pivot is a game changer for me and I will never go back to anything else.
Thanks a lot Bill

"Hi Bill,

I have been a hair stylist for ten years and finally last year I purchased my first set of Hioshi Shears on line and I want to say I absolutely love them! It's hard for me to describe the difference the Shaman has made in my livelihood but it has... every single day. This was absolutely the best investment that I made so far in my career and thank you Bill for doing such a great job of making yourself available to your customers. I see what you mean when you told me you like working with people. GREAT customer service, keep it up!

Hi Pam,

Thank you so much for helping me pick out the perfect shears over the phone! I have been a stylist for 10 years and have used some of the best shears in the industry that really weren't that nice but you knew what you were talking about so I took your word for it and I couldn't be happier. The Relaxed thumb was the perfect shear for me because my wrist has been getting sore lately but as soon as I committed to your Relaxed thumb, I could tell right away that it gave my wrist a much needed break. Thanks Pam, I really appreciate the time you took with me to select the perfect set of shears.

Go Hioshi!

I kept on hearing about your company from stylists who have bought from you. It was almost too good to be true but I finally found a shear company that wasn't out to gouge me and the bonus is I can make payments on them. Nice job Bill and Pam, keep up the great work.



Thank you so much for your payment plan, it;s the only way I could afford to buy a pair of shears that I so desperately needed. I didn't even care if you charged me more or added on some fees to make payments to you but YOU DIDN'T!! You can count on me to buy all my shears from Hioshi!

Hi Bill and Pam,

It was nice to meet you at the Las Vegas Hair Show. I could tell right away that you both very much cared about my needs and concerns but I wasn't as sure as you were that the Double Swivel would be the perfect shear for me but you are so passionate that I gave them a try. It took about 3 days to get the feel for it but my oh my, what an amazing difference it has made. I'm cutting in all different directions without moving my wrists and it feels awesome. Thanks you two, Hioshi Rocks!!

Hi you guys,

Why someone hasn't come up with a shear that weighs less by putting holes in them is beyond me but your Holy Shear is incredible. I could tell immediately the weight difference and I couldn't wait to use them for a while and when I did, it was amazing!
Thanks Hioshi for being pioneers and coming up with some cool things for our industry
Love ya
