To fulfill our customer’s needs, our professional must have same point of view with our customers. “Reflect opinion, given from our customers, on the scissors” is our philosophy. It is meaningless to create and manufacture best scissors, only from our point of view. When customers’ opinion meets with our best material and professional techniques, it gives you our best Hikari scissors.
The origin comes from the craftsmanship applied in blade edging on Japanese Katana swords where the surface of the blade is concaved resembling the shape of shells on clams. The scissors version applies that same craftsmanship of Japanese swords and we call it Hikari Convex Edge.
After extensive R＆D, Hikari’s founder was the first to introduce the technology to the world scissors industry, and our Convex Hair Scissors achieved an unprecedented quality of sharpness. In the present, almost every manufacturer attempts to imitate the Convex Edge, and although the form could be reproduced, the quality of sharpness cannot be duplicated.
