Who We Are
When Quartered Steels first started, many moons ago, we were really small and not many stylists knew us. We liked that. It allowed us time to research the best materials and manufacturers to produce our designs and share our innovative ideas with them. We really did go to the ends of the earth to seek out true quality and we found it ! One of our greatest challenges has been value. We started small, so our order sizes were small. This meant that our prices didn't reflect the value we wanted to give to you, the customer.
Now we've grown up, we have been able to buy so much better! This in turn has allowed us to lower our prices and pass on those savings to you, the customer, without having to compromise on quality. We aren't greedy. We didn't start this company to make millions. In fact, we're stylists ourselves and in all honesty, we just wanted quality for our own use. Scissors that had practical applications, an ease of use and carried an edge well.

In the 16 years that I have been cutting hair I have never found a scissor that lives up to Quartered Steels. The passion and care that goes into each scissor is unrivalled which not only gives me great belief in the brand but also enables me to create a higher level of work with extra ease. The cold forged steel alone is not enough for Quartered Steels, they combine that with the most ergonomic and comfortable design to ensure a fantastic scissor for precision. They also realise that there are different needs for different tools to create different looks and techniques, because of this they have created a precise range to cater for every hair possibility. Quality is everything and investing in your tools will enable longevity in your career by giving a high quality of service to those in your chair.

Quartered Steels scissors are the best in the business, simple really!
The steel, the edges, the branding in it's entirety is amazing! You need these in your life!
I started using Quartered Steels scissors around 12 months ago. As soon as they arrived I knew they were special.
Possibly the best scissors I’ve used in my life and I’ve used many brands. Glad to be associated with this brand. The customer care after you purchase them is second to none!
