The Lightest Touch to Sharpen

Removing Minimal Metal

We sharpen hairdressing, barbering, pet grooming, seamstress; tailoring, industrial, poultry, paper hanging, domestic and most other types of scissors on our specialist scissor sharpening machinery. Using the very lightest of touch we ensure the minimum of material is removed to construct the new cutting edge to prolong the life of the scissor. The scissor is then carefully honed, if required reconvexed serviced and reassembled

Sharpening Scissors The Ultimate Way

There are three basic kinds of scissors, the ones you will recognise in your kitchen are called bevel edged; these are also in use by seamstresses, paper hangers, tailors and in many other everyday uses. These are sharpened to precise angles on out “twice as sharp” configured with white grit wheels. We do not over polish as these scissors need to seize the item being cut rather than have the closing blades push it along.

Professional hairdressers and pet groomers need and use use far sharper edges than bevel types. These are provided by semi convex and fully convex scissors. In cross section these have a profound convex top and a concave base. We use another purpose made machine to bet the best results for these types. Our Hiro-To will sharpen, re-convex and finish with a polish producing profoundly sharp edges then when they are finished will cut a single ply of wet tissue and are so sharp they prevent hair from pushing along the scissor as it cuts wet or dry hair. Some stylists use curved scissors (semi convex edge) and we are able to refinish those on our equipment.

Pet hair / fur is different to human, more coarse more tough. It is not unusual to have micro grooves at about 72 per inch,  in one scissor blade to prevent push and “grab” the hair keeping in place until cut. These grooves are put in the a blade with a special file or a dedicated machine with a grooved diamond wheel - the Corru-Gator.
A different the Corru-Gator wheel with 48 teeth per inch allows us to create a different corrugated cutting edge designed primarily for use in the food processing industry including poultry and fish by holding the tendons or fish bones in place to prevent sliding. Other industrial users of this edge include users of Kevlar and carbon fabrics in lay ups
