Shear Precision Sharpening

Welcome to Shear Precision® Sharpening Service


Are your scissors or blades not cutting?

Do your scissors fold hair, feel crunchy, or have a nick in the blade?  Are they going dull sooner than expected?  Have you ever given a favorite pair of scissors to someone claiming to be a sharpener only to get them back worse than before?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, we can help.

Would you take your child to an unlicensed physician or your pet to an unlicensed veterinarian?  Would you trust your car brakes to someone without an ASE certification or choose a construction contractor without a business license to make improvements to your home?   I'd wager that you answered no to most, if not all, of those questions.  You have invested hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars in the tools of your trade so why would you entrust their care to just anybody?

As professional sharpeners certified in the art and science of sharpening scissors, thinners, and clipper blades, we know the difference between honed and non-honed, convex and bevel, forged and cast, and many other factors that must be evaluated in order to use the appropriate technique to correctly refurbish your precision tools to the high performance operation, look, and feel that led you to choose them in the first place.
