Our Products and their qualities 440c & VG10

For years we have tried to find a product thats durable well made as well as affordable. We have made a few mistake in this process but we now stick with a couple of manufacturers
 
Over the years we have been led to belive our manufacturers when they say they use a particular type of steel as we are all working from 1000s of miles away and work on trust. If they say they use JP steel, then we trusted them.
Nowadays we work even closer with our manufactures in China on designs and know what our products are made from as they wish to have a continued and trustful relationship with us.
Our manufacturers now say that JP VG10 steel is not available to them anymore as a country but Japanese 440c is to some and we have certificates to prove that one of my manufactureres uses JP440c.
The three steels we use currently are German VG10 and 440c (9cr) and some JP440c  this is the only way we can keep our prices affordable for the everyday groomer. We will also show this on our shop page in the description section.
If we was to supply pure hand made Japanese steel scissors made in
Japan then they would be in the 500 pounds bracket and for us, most everyday working groomers would not find these affordable so therefore we do not sell them.
 
We are also aware that there is a company (well not a company) out there who doesn’t necessarily like our products but that’s the business we work in. 🤷‍♀️
We came into this business over 5 yrs ago as groomers and sharpeners to be able to offer a product that works and does what it says on the tin not to sell overpriced (Big Name) products from the same manufacturers for double the money.
What is 9CR steel?
Alloy Steel Grade 9CR is a highly versatile material with excellent properties for various applications. It is an iron and chromium alloy with added elements such as carbon, manganese, silicon, phosphorus, sulfur, and molybdenum.
What is German VG10
German VG10 It is a stainless steel with a high carbon content containing 1% Carbon, 15% Chromium, 1% Molybdenum, 0.2% Vanadium, and 1.5% Cobalt.
