I'm absolutely hands down impressed with the cuts I've been able to get from these shears. I was a little disappointed because another set I had my eyes on were out of stock which left me to explore these 2024 Matsui but to my surprise, I'm in love! If you're looking for a new shear and aren't quite sure, give these a try! You won't be disappointed. Easy to handle and there's nothing more satisfying than the hair gliding through and getting the precision cut! I'm so happy I made this purchase.
