Trust the Scissorsmith Technique
Servicing high-end shears is an art. Not all types of blades can be serviced the same way, and our team has been trained in sharpening methods for both convex and bevelled edge shears. We know that your scissors are one of the most important tools you have, so we have dedicated our practice to ensuring the highest quality sharpening techniques.
In the hands of unskilled technicians, shears can be ruined by the wrong sharpening equipment or careless techniques. Using a grinder on a convex blade will remove excessive amounts of steel and put an improper angle on your shear, compromising the precision of your cuts and the longevity of your shear. Scissorsmith helps to ensure your scissors are with you for years to come.
The Scissorsmith technique is precise, thorough, and done with care.
