In 2011, after many years of extensive research, innovation and testing, Hikari Products USA, Inc. (HPI) took the unprecedented step of introducing an entirely new line of scissors. These new scissors provide the coveted Hikari performance at an amazing price!
Etaro scissors exhibit precision and quality far above its price range. While Hikari scissors are undoubtedly the best scissors in the world, we understand that there are situations and budgets that do not facilitate an investment in a Hikari scissor. For budget-conscious stylists, who won't sacrifice on quality, Etaro scissors are the perfect choice
The positive feedback we have received from salons has been overwhelming. Without fail, stylists clamor to know how such an effortlessly precise scissor can be purchased for half the price of comparable shears.
As with all Hikari scissors, Etaro scissors are made with the finest quality Japanese steel and tempered to Hikari’s stringent specifications. The initial base for Etaro scissors is formed in China and then imported into the United States, where Hikari-certified craftsmen shape and sharpen the blades creating the famous Hikari Precision Convex Edge. The blades are then balanced and polished to perfection. The result is the famous Hikari “melting through the hair feel.”
(Please note that Hikari invented the convex edge and although many scissor companies may claim to have a similar type of edge, none of the imitations are comparable to the Hikari edge. There is only one Hikari Precision Convex edge, and every stylist can feel the difference).
The name Etaro symbolizes the bond between the founders of Hikari USA and Japan, Edmund Tsuji and Fukutaro Takahashi, respectively. The “E” represents Edmund’s expertise, which was nourished and mentored by Fukutaro when Ed resided with the Takahashi family and apprenticed at Hikari Japan. “Taro” represents Fukutaro san’s unmatched passion, dedication, and commitment to developing scissors from a stylist's perspective. As the only American to study under Fukutaro san’s demanding tutelage, Edmund ensures that Hikari USA exemplifies the Fukutaro san legacy.
