Why should you want me to sharpen your hairstyling schears? Recently I picked up a few shears for sharpening. One of them appeared to be a high quality Japanese scissors. I measured the sharpened angle to be 35 degrees (very sharp) and proceeded to to sharpen them at that angle. Later I was given another of the same scissor; my Lazer Angle Gauge measured the sharpened angle at 48 degrees (unacceptable). I sharpened it at the correct35 degrees. Why somebody would chop 13 degrees off that good scissor is beyound my ability to understand. I see many scissors that don’t come close to manufactures specifications. That’s why
Are your scissors & shears sharpened at a proper angle? I can show you with my laser angle gauge.
Hair-styling Scissor & Shear Sharpening Is a Science, Is an Art
Both are true. Science: is the goals that need to be achieved. Art: is how to reach the goals.
Are all scissor & shear sharpeners the same? Definitely Not! 3 things make a hair-styling scissor cut well:
- The sharpened angle should be 45 degrees or sharper. The correct angle should be easy, but I’ve seen many sharpeners who don’t even come close. (See below in Getting Technical.)
- The hone line–the flat spot on the inside edge of the scissor blade–must be thin and smooth. A thin smooth, hone line-that takes a lot of skill. Otherwise the scissors will not open and close smoothly, and the blades will dull quickly.
- The scissor blades must be bent slightly towards each other. It is called the “set” or “balance”. This is the most difficult to accomplish. If the blades don’t meet properly, the scissors won’t cut well, especially towards the tips.
I do these things very well. I make scissors incredibly sharp, with your choice of mail order scissor sharpening or on-site services in the LA area. I can create an edge design especially for Point Cutting, or Blunt Cutting or Slide Cutting. The right edge design makes great hair cuts easier and more precise.
Righty & Lefty Scissor Sharpening, I put a proper factory edge whether it is beveled or convex. I know how difficult it is to find sharpener who does it correctly.
I have the equipment and expertise to sharpen your Japanese hair-styling scissors & shears and German hairdressing scissors like new. I have been sharpening scissors & shears since 1981 — $25.00 each pair of scissors.
Over time, bad sharpeners can damage good scissors. What are you going to do with those scissors you used to love? Buy new ones? NO! Have me sharpen them so you can love them again.
