The Legacy began with Mr.
a champion hairdresser who in his quest for the ultimate haircutting
comprehensively analyzed hair structures and metals and experimented
scissor design for several years. In
1968, he made the very first pair of Hikari scissors and soon
invented the Precision Convex Edge, which revolutionized the concept of
sharpness, accuracy and durability.
In this 1989 photo,
President Reagan is congratulating Mr. Takahashi for being named one of
businessmen in Japan. Mr.
innovative scissor designs garnered worldwide attention and began
setting the standard
for tools in the industry.
Takahashi believed that his in-depth, firsthand experience as a
hairdresser enabled him to develop scissors that truly met the needs of
all stylists. This philosophy is fostered at
Hikari, the only scissor manufacturer founded and led
hairdresser. Today, this tradition continues to live on with Kazuyoshi
and his son Shinichi.
