With Shear Fit® Scissor Fitting System, you finally have the opportunity to relax that constructive grip you’ve been using with your other shears and let your Shark Fin® “float” in your hand as you cut. Plus, our patented Shark Fin handle aligns the nerves and tendons in your student’s hand for more control, comfort and contact, which can greatly reduce carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve damage and other health-related problems caused by improperly fitted shears. Please visit for more details. We are a manufacturer and importer of highquality professional and student shears. Our trademark brand is TASHITA. Visit for more information.
