We sharpen scissors in the same way that the best Japanese manufacturers sharpen their scissors. We use a flat hone sharpening machine that has been developed by the leading Japanese manufacturers to give scissors the ultimate service.
Because we have been trained using techniques used by World renowned Japanese Scissorsmiths, in most cases we can rejuvenate scissors back to their original brand new condition.
