Good Morning Everybody

Stephen has just increased his Sharpening facilities and is now offering full and Professional Scissor Sharpening for Hairdressers, Barbers and Dog Groomers. As well as this he can now corrugated/serrate Scissors accurately and precisely due to the fact that he has just purchased two new sharpening machines.

He gave me the impression he is very busy, coupled with the fact that is wife is a Nurse during these difficult times. God Bless her !  Paul specialises in the sharpening of Professional Scissors as well as Oster, Andis and Wahl etc Dog Clippers.

So people of Bradford area REMEMBER Paul is the Sharpener for you. We should all support each other…….”…..shouldn’t we.

JON HADWICK 2 Sharpen New Sharpening Service in Cornwall/Devon

End of June 2020 Jon drove up from Cornwall to collect one Nebraska 14” Clipper Sharpener, Wolff Industries Ookami OGS -TAS and the Tru-Hone Knife Sharpener. These were thoroughly demonstrated for Jon who already had considerable experience in this field. As his wife Jeni is a very well known Dog Groomer. Now is business is complete in the Dog world. Also he was taught how to sharpen Horse and Sheep Blades.

So you Cornish and Devonian Dog Lovers take your Clippers and scissors and Knives to Jon in Saltash Business Park. He is waiting for you or he telephone him and he will come to you in his sophisticated mobile workshop .



Steve and Debbie sent Chris Lamb here for Training on their Nebraska 16”  Clipper Honer Low amperage Model. Whilst here they purchased the Ookami OGS-TAS Scissor Sharpener. During his training it became immediately apparent that Chris was very much a “hands on” dexstrous man. Nevertheless Chris was taught all aspects of Scissor Sharpening- from Left handed to Right handed Scissors, Thinners, texturisers, Ergonomic and straight handles and we discussed  Serrated/Corrugated Scissors. Frankland Grinding have ordered a new Scissor Corrugator in case they want one. This should arrive here this week.

We discussed all aspects of Scissors theory, health and safety-wearing safety glasses and a dust mask. Then we stripped and sharpened many different types of Clippers- Dog,Horse, Sheep of all makes. I consider Chris to be the man to survice these tools with great skill. A pleasure to meet you Chris in June 2020. Please come back – you would be very welcome for more black coffee !

Miguel Louis Moniz came all the way from Ponta Delgado Azores for Scissor etc Training

Miguel arrived on Monday 30 December 2019 and stayed for two days of intensive training on the Wolff Industries Ookami OGS-TAS Scissor Sharpener. Incidentally the Azores are a three and a half hour flight towards the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Some 600kms from North East to South West (wide). Approximately nine islands , population of 245000 and is 1600 Kms west of mainland Portugal. Miguel had worked as an hairdresser in  the U.K. and Vancouver. He is a man with a tremendous grasp of scissoring.  Not surprising with his light touch he easily picked up the skills of servicing a Scissor- sharpening, Honing, balancing, tips alignment and fitting a new stopper. Miguel a really nice, intelligent man takes our Scissor machine and accessories back to Ponta Delgado in a couple of days. We wish him well. He was also trained how to sharpen dog, horse and vetinary clippers and Knives. So please people of the Azores support him- he will do a Professional job for you.

Happy New Year Senor Moniz
