I have been doing hair for 33 years and was looking for a new pair of shears. I researched several different kinds and decided on Washi Butterfly shears. I have always used Joewell in the past and wanted to change because of their change in quality. I LOVE my new Washi shears. They cut really well and clean and are well balanced. My order came fast which was an added bonus. Washi has won me over and I plan to recommend them to my co-workers. Awesome company and products!
