The FB1™ Glass Blade - Beyond the Cutting Edge

FB1™ technology supported by one of the world’s leading research institutions.

The FB1™ glass blade possesses unique qualities that will enhance and boost everyone’s hairstyling capabilities.  Some of the effects that it achieves are extremely difficult or virtually impossible to achieve with conventional cutting methods.

One of the world’s leading glass manufacturing companies highly commends the glass technology of Frank Bisson’s FB1™ glass blade.

The FB1™ creates more cutting angles, texture, lift and volume in the haircut due to its material and multi-faceted edge of the glass blade. After extensive research and tests, the FB1™ glass blade was described by Mr Ian Brough FRMS HNC, Electron Optics Consultant, Materials Science Centre, Manchester University as “...approaching atomic sharpness.”

So when we say sharp, we mean sharp! Cutting hair using the FB1™ glass blade produces a clean cut, leaving each hair shaft in a healthy condition and eliminates split ends.

The sharpness of the FB1™ glass blade also gives each strand of hair a tapered and fine cut, thus increasing the softness and blend throughout the hair. Although it is extremely sharp, the FB1™ glass blade has been cleverly designed with safety in mind.  The way the product is designed means you do not have to touch the blade.  The FB1™ Glass Hair Cutter has also been risk assessed and carries CE marking for quality and safety assurance.

The revolutionary and amazing FB1™ glass blade technology gives lift, volume and texture without the use of styling products. It is brilliant for giving volume and body to fine hair. This makes it ideal for those that have medical conditions on the scalp who cannot use styling products.

It is awesome for removing bulk and weight from thick hair very quickly whilst giving texture at the same time.  By using different cutting techniques curly hair can be made straighter whilst straight hair can be given a wavy effect, if so desired.

Glass cutting with the FB1™ is perfect for producing a soft geometric line creating textured, scrunch-styled and spiky haircuts.  It is also great for controlling and managing frizzy hair.

Mr Ian Brough FRMS HNC, Electron Optics Consultant, Materials Science Centre, Manchester University states:

Cutting with Clippers, Scissors and Razors

The cutting action of the clippers effectively shears the hair, as do scissors.  Razors also cause damage to the hair. Consequently we see that the cut ends of the individual hairs all show damage which in extreme cases fractures the hair, destroys the cuticle layer, damages the cortical fibres and also leaves the hair with “split ends”.

Using Glass for Cutting Hair

Since as early as 1950 scientists have been using knives produced from glass to cut delicate samples of tissue for examination at very high magnifications in transmission electron microscopes.  The technique has been so successfully employed because of the high degree of sharpness that can be obtained from an engineered glass edge which causes no damage.

The application of a similar technique to cut hair has the major advantage that the glass blade will have sharpness unobtainable from mechanically produced edges such as scissors, razors and clippers. Additionally the method of glass cutting does not involve mechanically shearing of the hair and consequently leaves hair in optimum condition.

Additional blades are sold at £19.99 per 25.

The FB1 Glass BladeWe recommend you use a new FB1™ glass blade for each haircut for hygiene and to get the optimum cutting edge.

Why it's better than other conventional cutting methods

Research by Mr Ian Brough FRMS HNC, Electron Optics Consultant, Materials Science Centre, Manchester University, shows that metal scissors, razors and clippers damage hair.  Only the FB1™ glass blade is sharp enough to cut cleanly without damage, such as split ends and leaves the hair in optimum condition.

The sharpness of the FB1™ glass blade also gives each strand of hair a tapered and fine tip, thus increasing the softness and blend throughout the hair. Although it is extremely sharp, the glass blade has been cleverly designed so that it is safer and easier to use.
