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 Clam Shell Blade.
A type of cutlery with a bulge similar to the shells of clams in between the ridges and blade edge.
After extensive R&D, Hikari’s founder was the first to introduce the technology to the world scissors industry, and the Convex Edge clam shell blades on hairdressing scissors achieved an unprecedented quality of sharpness. In the present, almost every manufacturer attempts to imitate the Convex Edge clam shell blade, and although the form could be reproduced, the quality of sharpness cannot be duplicated.
Presently, machine production is common, but at Hikari, we are committed to hand-made production through majority of process. Especially for the clam shell blade, the convex edge, it requires seasoned craftsmanship to produce.
To be able to cut smoothly with a constant tension, it requires cutting with one contact point on the blade.
At Hikari, our craftsmen adjust the delicate curvatures on two blades by hand to deliver one-of-a-kind and distinguished sharpness with great feel.
The more a blade is sharpened, it will become that much sharper, but sharp edge is thin and delicate, so the two scissor blades will interlock more often, lowering the scissors’ usability as a result.
By maintaining more than enough thickness at the ridge for blade support, and by applying an astonishingly sharp edge, Hikari Convex Scissors delivers co-existence of practical features such as long-lasting sharpness and durability when regrinding, as well as highest quality sharpness.
The Hikari quality is not only its sharpness but its grip as well.
Stylists open and close scissors thousands of times per day.
A grip that is not fit for the user’s hand and scissors that are difficult to hold will cause tendonitis. Generally, manufacturers just make scissors, but at Hikari, the leaders of the company has been hair stylists for three generations, so we are committed to develop scissors with correct grip position and secure feel.
Sure grip when blunt, chop or back hand cutting, and even when used for vertical, side, slant, or in any angle, the grip will feel as though it is stuck to the fingers. Because it fits the fingers correctly, it will make it easier to cut and lower hand fatigue.
For those stylists with smaller hands or fingers who do not feel secure with conventional scissors our specialized finger rest is very effective. The finger rest is positioned higher and with wider design that fits just right for shorter pinkie.
The shape of the rings provide stress free motion for the fingers held in any direction without discomfort.
