Did you realize that Hikari's Ergonomic Positioning System (EPS) is the most requested feature among the top Platform Artists and Educators. EPS is featured on a select few products including the newest, Hikari Spark.
Yasaka is now producing scissors under the third generation of the Matsumoto family in Nara, Japan. As they struggle with high material costs and counterfeits from China, the new generation is determined to improve the quality and construction of their products. All the classic styles are now made with ATS314 custom cobalt stainless alloy blades and a better pivot system for a more durable cutting edge and smooth cutting feel. As a result, they have increased their prices, forcing us to increase our prices accordingly. Despite this price increase, Yasaka remains one of the most affordable 100% Japanese-made scissor in the marketplace.
Want more proof that Hikari scissors are the best hair cutting shears in the world? Well, here you have it! In a long standing tradition, Hikari once again dominated the stage at the 2015 NAHA Awards!!!
