From the age of hair arranging to the age of hair cutting. Two scissors were created in Meiji period from surgery scissors to styling scissors. Now developed into the current Matsuzaki scissors. Matsuzaki Scissors was founded in 31st year of the Meiji period (1898) by Terukazu Matsuzaki at Hongo in Tokyo.

Design of traditional three metallic rings of Matsuzaki Scissors.
In Matsuzaki family, three metallic rings are considered to mean “manufacturer / hairstylist / customer”
based on scissors manufactured with Samurai spirit.
The three rings represent “harmony”—Human being live in harmony side by side. Therefore, we, Matsuzaki believe we have to pay respect to all, to be modest, to cultivate spirit and make our Matsuzaki Scissors strong and elegant.
