Scissor sharpening with hand-finishing
Slide cutting and point cutting means your scissors need to have the keenest possible edge. That’s why it’s so important to have your scissors sharpened regularly. But when you need an super sharp finish for slide and point cutting, there is no better scissor-sharpening technique than hand-finishing.
Scissor sharpening the Japanese way
It’s no coincidence that the Japanese, who make some of the finest hairdressing scissors in the world, use hand-finishing. No Japanese hairdresser would dream of using scissors that hadn’t been sharpened and honed to perfection by a specialist hand-finish.
Standard scissor sharpening involves using diamond and leather stropping wheels. When you choose the Scissor Man’s hand-finished sharpening service, your scissors are sharpened on a laser-aligned machine, then finished by hand with a honing stone. Finally, a honing wax is used to give your scissors that extra edge.
Why choose the hand-finished scissor sharpening service?
When you’re scissors are sharpened and hand-finished, you achieve a better, more precise cut. And your clients will notice the difference too as the scissors are more gentle on the hair. If you regularly slide cut hair or point cut, the hand-finished sharpening service is a must.
