In 1969 Hikari was founded by, Fukataro Takahashi. He was a nationally acclaimed, champion hairdresser from Japan.
Mr. Takahashi was unwilling to accept that there was no “perfect” tool out there. His dream was to provide every hairdresser with the ultimate haircutting Shear. Through his persistence, passion and dedication, Hikari Scissors was born.
Takahashi analyzed hair structure in order to develop the ultimate Shear!
Fukataro studied properties of metals, microscopic pieces of hair and analyzed hair structure.
Armed with his extensive knowledge and experience in scissor design and haircutting techniques, Fukataro designed and hand-made the first pair of Hikari scissors in 1968.
He brought his prototype to many scissor manufacturers, but was turned away each time. They all gave him the same response: producing the scissor would take too much time and money.
The early days of handmaking scissors.
The Passion for Excellence
Fukataro opened his one-man business. Soon, he trained others in the fine art of scissor making, and the rest History.
Hikari’s painstaking research in resulted in alloys with characteristics of strength and resiliency, providing a lifetime of enjoyment as they melt & lazer through the hair!
Fukataro’s ability to innovate timeless scissor designs, rapidly gained Hikari, worldwide recognition as the new industry standard.
Hikari is the only scissor manufacturer founded by and directed by a hairdresser. Thus, Giving first-hand knowledge of the art of haircutting; that truly sets Hikari as The 1# Leader & Innovator of Japanese Shears.
Hikari Invents the Precision Convex Edge
All Hikaris are hand made in Japan, featuring Precision Convex Blades and Vacuum Heat Tempered Alloys.
The precision Convex Edge, first invented by Hikari, revolutionized the concept of cutting sharpness and accuracy.
Vacuum Heat Tempering ensures durability and long cutting life.
The Hikari Precision Convex Edge combines a hand-buffed outer blade with a hollow ground (concave) inner blade.
Both blades are polished by hand to razor sharpness.
This edge has no serrations or conventional outer Bevel edge or grind.
That’s why Hikari scissors are the most accurate in the world.
The Tradition Continues
Today in Japan, the tradition is carried on by the grandson of Fukataro Takahashi, Champion hairdresser Shinichi Takahashi.
