I have been servicing “Jo’s” Barber shop for many years. I even sharpened and supplied him with scissors at his previous location some fifteen years ago. I particularly like doing work for him because he is kept constantly busy , therefore he uses his cutting and texturising scissors immediately with his clients. Also Joelikes me to have a constant supply of “Wahl” combs and cutters (clipper blades). Unlike some barbers he likes to fit the blades, after oiling into the head of the clipper. He also, periodically buys new Japanese Cobalt or Titanium Scissors. Every Hairdresser or Barber has different preferences when choosing a scissor, such as lighter ones weighing not less than 50grammes up to heavier ones , up to 65 Grammes. Also there are some five different lengths ranging from 4 1/2″ 5″. 5 1/2″. 6″. and nowadays 6 1/2″ plus the added factor of left handed scissors in all these weights and different lengths. So FGP keep in stock very large numbers of scissors.
Everything done successfully , having drunk Jo’e’s excellent coffee. I left-Joe happy working away- me happy. A la procaine visite !!
