Preparing Items for Shipping:

  • Do not ship items/ tools/ blades loose in a box.
  • Wrap all shears individually, protecting each shear separately.
  • Use a box large enough to fit all items comfortably with extra bubble wrap or some sort of protection around them. 


Our Process for Sharpening

  • Shears are tested to see how they are cutting
  • Shears are then disassembled  for cleaning
  • shears are honed and original convex or bevel  factory edge is then sharpened
  • Shears hollow ground is then polsied cleaned and assembled
  • Shears are then balance and adjusted
  • Tested to insure a perfect cutting blade with no push


Scissor Terminology

Its important to understand the the differance between bevel edge (non honed edge), convex edge (honed edge), and how they are differant. Understanding the names of the components will better allow you to understand the work being performed, and convey issues you may have with other tools in the future.
