I sharpen shears. In the cosmetology industry scissors are referred to as shears. It can be confusing for people who don't do hair. Just to clarify, I do not sharpen clipper blades or work on clippers.
My machine is designed with a horizontal disk allowing me to produce a perfect curved edge on Japanese style convex shears. I have worked with countless stylists to restore their convex shears to factory grade or sharper.
Beveled shears are a classic design and the most popular style. I can match the angle to any beveled shear, resulting in a long-lasting, durable edge.
Sharp ends are critical for groomers to ensure precision for sometimes less than cooperative clients. I can help keep your shears in optimal condition.
I begin each service by inspecting blade edges and measure the blades for any bend. While sharpening, I utilize different abrasives to remove only the smallest amount of steel. This is what guarantees the longest possible life for your shears. For shears with ride lines, I finish the service on water stones.
I sharpen all beauty and barbering shears, including thinning and texturizing shears. For groomers, I sharpen both flat and curved shears. I do not do serrated edges.
My shear sharpening services restore shears back to their factory brilliance---or sharper.
As a fellow stylist, I understand the relationship we have with our beloved shears. Rest assured I will perform your sharpening service with the highest care and concern for your tools.
