During the initial inspection and test cut with your beauty shears we are evaluating the Tension, the Edges and the Alignment of the 2 blades. We inspect for any nicks along the edge of your scissors. We inspect the Inside Ride Line for any uneven wear. We inspect the alignment of the 2 shear blades to make certain they are crossing one another evenly and accurately.
Once we've diagnosed the issues with your beauty shears we begin by disassembling and cleaning your shears. Once clean, we flatten and polish the inside ride line of your shears before restoring the true convex edge of your shears on our Hira-To Flat Hone Sharpening Machine. The Hira-to is specifically designed to Professionally sharpen Beauty Shears. Once the inside ride line and edges are aligned your shears are polished to a high luster. Your shears will be reassembled, tension set and tested to ensure your Beauty Shears are cutting as well as they can! It takes us about 20 minutes to properly sharpen a shear.
Convex Beauty Shears are $30 each for Sharpening. We sharpen all brands, and pricing includes minor repairs such as bumper replacement or thinning shear repair.

Having sharp Garden Tools can make a huge difference in how productive you are outside. Easily cutting through vines, flower stems, and hedges will help them to grow in a healthy way. When your tools are dull, you are "tearing" through the plant and increasing the likelihood of killing it. Sharpening Garden Tools is also much cheaper and better for the environment than buying new ones.
Our Garden Tools Sharpening prices range from $7-$10. We can sharpen pruners, hedge trimmers, loppers, axes, shovels, mower blades, and more.
Drop off your Garden Tools or Contact Us to schedule a residential sharpening appointment.
Dull lawnmower blades smash your grass instead of cutting it. This is not good for your lawn! We use a 60-80 grit aluminum oxide belt to match the original angle and bring up fresh metal. We then remove the burr and check to make sure your blade is balanced.This process removes a much smaller amount of material than using a bench grinder.
You can Drop Off your mower blades, or Contact Us to schedule an appointment for mobile sharpening.
Lawnmower Blade Sharpening is $10 off the mower, and $25 on the mower. Take a look at the pics below to see the difference:
This is what's happening to your grass:
