Why Are We Different To Other Sharpeners?
We are one of the only sharpening companies in the UK who can fully convex hairdressing scissors ……. Our sharpening techniques are unique to the UK, no one has the same equipment or sharpening methods as us and that is why we produce unrivalled results ……. If you are unsure as to what convex means - just look at hairdressing scissors suppliers and you will see that all top quality scissors will have 'convex' in their product description.
Nearly all new premium hairdressing scissors on the market are originally convex (razor-sharp edges that are barely visible to the naked eye).
Our sharpening methods ensure that hairdressing scissors are always sharpened in accordance to the original manufacturer specifications ……. this means ensuring that scissors are sharpened at the correct angle.
Dependant upon nicks and bent blades - we spend 20-30 minutes servicing a pair of scissors until they cut perfectly.
We use the same equipment, premium scissor manufacturers use, i.e. The Hikari Factory, to create razor-sharp edges on new two-piece convex hairdressing scissors.
We take scissors apart so that the whole length of the blade is cleaned and sharpened at the correct angle, specified by the manufacturer. In addition, the scissor parts eg screw, scissor stop, washer etc is assessed and if required, they will be replaced (we may not be able to source parts for budget scissors, as some of the budget scissor manufacturers do not make spare parts).
We do not use a grinding machine.
We use a water-cooled machine to ensure that scissors never over-heat.
We hand sharpen hairdressing scissors using 5 types of wet and dry paper, 3 blocks of Japanese wet stones and 2 types of polishing leathers, this process creates a mirror finish, making the scissor blades fee razor sharp and smooth.
Our scissor-smiths are extremely experienced and sharpen both the inside (using Japanese wet stones) and the outside of scissor blades. This technique is used in Japanese scissor making factories, because it produces perfect razor-sharp, long-lasting edges.
Our highly skilled hand sharpening techniques gently removes minimal metal, greatly increasing the life-span of scissors.
If scissors are sent to us with convex edges, we will maintain the convex edges and produce a mirror-smooth finish.
Hairdressing scissors that have had very slight bevel edges applied to them can be sharpened back to their original convex edges.
Hairdressing scissors that have had heavy bevel edges applied to them, will not be able to be re-convexed, however, we will be able to drastically improve them and send them back cutting perfectly.
We will not compromise our highly skilled sharpening techniques and will spend as long as it takes, ensuring that every pair of scissors leaving our premises, cuts perfectly.
