Dovo 2445085 5″ Master Class Shears | INOX Rostfrei Stainless Steel with Plasma Coating | Made in Germany

SKU: masterclass244 Category:


The Dovo “Master Class” 244 is part of Dovo’s übershears, with razor sharp and hollow ground blade cutting edges along with a convex profile for the blades planes (well, being convex, they’re technically no longer blade planes, of course).

The Master Class’ blue-hued carbon-plasma coating gives an increased glide to the action; as great as the #239/240 Elitaire’s movement is, this one is just a bit smoother. The coating’s also supposed to quickly separate skin from metal to reduce risk of an allergic reaction from any mishap and to keep an allergic stylist’s fingers sensitive to the necessary presence of nickel happier.

Master Class has the famed and patented Dovo “Micro Motion” PTFE-enabled spring-loaded pressure plate to hold the center screw, which gives a more responsive feel to the scissoring action and a certain ease to starting and finishing the scissor action.

The fully convex blade surfaces are what really sets the Master Class apart from the rest of the Dovo line, though, allowing precise slice cuts where one points the scissor to the ground and opens the scissor but doesn’t actuate the joint, instead relying upon the exceptionally thin and sharp edge to trim the hair which points to the ceiling. Just a smooth thrust of throttle with the hand/arm from ceiling to floor at sharp, low angles to the hair allows thinning by carving. It is a very modern technique, only used with cutting edge scissor designs favoring the Japanese style. You can also cut the upright hair from the top, to knock down some excess density and loosen up the hair.

The Master Class 244 is supplied with a bottle of lubricant, adjustment screw, and tin box.

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.
