I recently had the pleasure of meeting Arthur Frankland and his lovely wife Maxine, as I attended his workshop for some one-on-one sharpening training learning how to service scissors and clipper blades.
Sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience, Arthur has a very patient and professional teaching approach enabling me to understand all the aspects of sharpening.
He goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and I highly recommend his course if you want to learn how to sharpen so “Thank You Arthur!”

“Arthur is a lovely gentlemen/ he has taught me over two days to a high standard. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here with Arthur.
He teaches very good theory of scissors and clippers and with constructive criticism he encouraged me to do my first sharpening”

Dear Arthur, my friend,
first of all, all the best I wish to you and your family in this year! I restaured my best friends old scissors (he is vet) as a gift. He called me after first procedure (hysterectomy at big dog) immediately , that he never had so good scissors before. While he wanted that scissiors throw out as unusable. He was totaly surprised!
I have the feeling, that I made very good purchase!

I have just spent three memorable and delightful days with Arthur learning about the sharpening of a scissors, clippers, knives and all sorts of other implements that came to mind during my training. Arthur has a wealth of knowledge and I wish I could have extracted all he knew but that would have been impossible but I will endeavour in the future to gain as much as I can. Like many who choose to walk this path I was hesitant as there are other trainers out there, but I am so glad I chose Arthur as he is a wonderful warm man with a big heart who is honest and generous. Thank you Arthur and Maxine for a wonderful time.
Further to the training ive undertaken with yourself i would like to say a big thank you to both Maxine and yourself for making it all so enjoyable over the three day attendance.
Nothing was too much trouble for you to explain and assist us to progress and promote Pro Sharpening.
Hope you both have enjoyed your holiday break and i look forward to meeting with you once again in the next few weeks.

Hi Arthur ! I just opened the shipment, all okay.
Thank You, I am grateful to you.
You are an honest businessman and a man.
I think that our further cooperation will be fruitful.
After a few days with Arthur, I felt confident in sharpening all types of Scissors, all types of clipper blades and Knives. The training was very enjoyable and intense Arthur has a very unique and magnetic way about him, and has a big heart.
From the moment you meet with Arthur and his lovely wife Maxine and his 19 year old cat Marley you are made very welcome, I think its a gift from GOD and he is very honest.
The world needs more people like him. I would recommend him to anybody who is venturing into the sharpening business, and he has a prompt delivery service. Keep up the good work and GOD bless

Despite a lot of confusion, Arthur turned up and sharpened my equipment to a beautiful standard. He is a welcoming gentleman with lots of interesting stories to tell. Thank you from Tailwaggers Kennels, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Arthur is a charming gentleman with a real passion and drive for what he does best, sharpening scissors and blades. He is honest about this work and the standard he left our scissors and blades is better than I’ve ever had before, in a word impeccable. I only wished I’d seen his scissor selection before I’d bought what I have, again his scissors are made with precision. Arthur is worth every penny, he is amazing!!!
A GOD send! i was without a sharpening service for some time then discovered Arthur who was very professional, very friendly, and very patient whilst working in between the customers! see you soon!
Andrew Britten, Just Cuts Chester
Excellent service. Prompt, reasonable prices. I have used others who have damaged my scissors. The service from Arthur was very good, and would recommend to anyone. He does the work where you are, which allows you to get on with your job. No, “sending it in the post”.
“I recommend any company who are considering starting their own sharpening business to have their training with Arthur of FGP”

All clippers sharpened to “perfection” and scissors. All sharpening done in the grooming Salon. We also bought Arthur’s specialist ergonomic scissors. Thanks

Hi Mr Frankland thanks for email. I do not need a receipt for the payment of the scissors but thank you for asking. they are great now like brand new – I am so glad I didn’t go out and buy new ones. it was lovely to meet you too and I have definitely put G W Hughes on my authors to read list. i want to read ‘walk to Jerusalem’. on my travels about I will be mentioning your ‘scissor skills’. yours in friendship.
The first time I used Frankland Grinding to sharpen my dog grooming scissors I have to admit I was a little more than apprehensive, due to some of the horror stories I’ve heard from different people regarding other not so reputable companies. My worries were soon put to rest, as Arthur did a wonderful job sharpening & rebalancing all my scissors. Using Arthur has saved me a small fortune, as I don’t have to buy a new set of scissors.
I would defiantly recommend Arthur to anyone who needs his services.

It was an absolute pleasure meEting you Arthur. I hope you enjoyed your crossing and that your trip to France proves to be a fruitful one.
Hello Arthur, I phoned you a few times but was just bad timing I’d say as I never got through but yes, I have been extremely busy. As for the machine, its an absolute steal Arthur. Im delighted with how it arrived and all the bits that came with it. Needless to say the machine was well minded and I know if us paddy’s were to sell a machine like that only half of those bits would have arrived with it. The last two companys I worked for did’nt have quite as many bits, still figuring out what some of them are for!! I am running it 3 phase for the moment but as you said only one motor is actually 3 phase so I will change that in the near future but for now I’d prefer if the motor payed for itself! Anyway its a great machine and thank you very much. I’ll give you a call in the next few days.
I had been without a scissor sharpener for a while and was so happy when I found Arthur! A very polite man to deal with. Made me feel very welcome at his home whilst I waited for him to sharpen my scissors. I would definitely recommend him to friends as his prices are extremely reasonable!

I HAVE DEALT WITH ARTHUR FOR MANY YEARS ,IN A WORLD OF INTERNET PACKAGES AND NO FRILLS , IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE TO MEET AND TRANSACT WITH ARTHUR , HIS WORD REALLY IS HIS BOND ,OR SHOULD I SAY EUROBOND! KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE ARTHUR YOUR WAY REALLY IS THE ONLY WAY !
Dear Arthur, Many thanks for the two days training. Although I have quite a few years experience of sharpening knives, scissors were new to me. I always self train myself in everything I do, but I can honestly say that two days with you was money well spent, and was something that would have cost me more money in lost custom in the long run, as I would have never got it right straight away.
You filled me with confidence and enthusiasm, and made me feel very welcome, which was appreciated. Your sincerity and honesty was heart-warming, and I hope this is just the beginning of a long working relationship and friendship. I wish you all the very best Arthur as you deserve it. You are a unique character, don’t ever change! This world would be a better place, if more people were like you.
If you ever need a reference, I would be more than happy to recommend your services. Kind regards
“Very professionally trained by Arthur Frankland whilst learning all about scissors knives and clippers. Thank you.”
