So you have a pair of dressmaking scissors or tailors shears, well these cutting instruments need to be looked after and that is where I come in. I have been sharpening scissors and shears for over 20 years. Not free hand sharpening, precision work done on a quality scissor sharpening machine that enables me to set them up to your requirements. Don't allow well meaning people with no knowledge of sharpening near them, scissors can quickly be ruined by a poorly executed sharpening practice. Do your scissors and yourself a favour by bringing them to me.

Contact / Location

I am handily located at the bottom of Mount Pleasant and provide a same day or next day service.
