The Dovo “Senso Cut Dynamic” 242 556 is a 5.5″ model with razor sharp and hollow ground blade cutting edges. Unique to the #242, the cutting edge follows a slightly curved line, becoming more pronounced in its curvature as you approach the “joint and crescent” at the center of the shear. The blade edges themselves are razor sharp, and the inner blade surfaces are both hollow ground and honed at the intersecting edge. It also shares the fantastic Micro Motion center bearing used with the Elitaire, Senso Cut, etc.
Note the modern ergonomic design, with a external finger rest, rubber-lined finger holes, rubber bumper, and ‘scalloped’ edge on the stationary blade for your index (or middle, if you hold your shear the “proper” way) finger.
Screw-in Finger Rest
Modern offset shank design with sculpted indent
Fixed center screw
Hollow ground & honed inner blade surfaces, with razor-sharp edges for both sides of the blade

NO RETURNS, EXCHANGES, OR CLAIMS OF DEFECT ACCEPTED FOR ANY PURCHASE OF DOVO SHEARS. These shears come with a 2-year guarantee against any manufacturing defect, and you will need to contact Dovo to return to Germany if this arises. We have never seen it occur, but if your copy of shears did turn out to have a defect in which Dovo (making hairdressing scissors since before the Cold War) agreed the item was defective, we will compensate you for your expenses of mailing to Germany (Dovo will pay for your return shipping). “Shears Defect Claim Fraud” is a rampant scourge within the market of hairdressers purchasing professional hairdressing scissors, as professional hairdressers seem to think that these things are like a library, try and return until you find your one true love…Ottoman Empire sultans were less particular about their concubines than is a professional hairdresser about their shears. This fraud is reflected in the much-too-high price you’ll pay because the ‘defective’ returned shears cannot be resold, lots of wasted postage/parcel, etc.. At this shop, however, 1) you will NEVER receive a shear used by anyone (let’s be honest, we all know that’s happening if you can return shears somewhere!), 2) you will NEVER be able to circumvent the policy to get your money back with the text that’s now assigned to the add-to-cart button itself, & 3) you will pay a much lower price because you are subsidizing the fraud of others. After mailing many of these ‘defective’ pieces back to Dovo over the years and getting the unchanged shears along with a preprinted form letter stating “we have examined this item very carefully and find nothing out of specification”, we will no longer humor this stuff – there’s plenty of places you can buy these shears (and pay more, obviously) if you’d like to play that ‘defective’ card to try-and-return.
