“This is actually one of the most appealing internet sites I have actually ever before found. That is incredibly appealing since of its distinct material and also amazing write-ups.” - Stacey


Mentioned in Facebook sharpeners forum:

  • Description: TO MY FELLOW SHARPENERS! Question: Can you analyze a shear and articulate the problems that it has to your customer within 30 seconds or less? If you can not, then there will always be a sharpener who can and will! Sometimes we only get one chance to make an impression, especially in the saturated industry of shear sharpening. Join me June 23rd & 24th to my Next Level Sharpeners Workshop in Illinois where I will teach you how to be the sharpener who can identify and articulate problems with your customers' shears. This class will cover all facets of shear sharpening and the latest in shear sharpening technologies. We will leave no “water stones” unturned😉!
    • The pictures presented here are shears that have their own problems, some can be identified easily and some not at all. And if you can identify the problems, are you skilled enough to fix them???
    • The last day to sign up for my sharpeners workshop is Friday, June 7th. Class seating is limited. Feel free to bring problem shears to work on in class! For more information on my sharpeners workshop, you can inbox me, contact me at (708) 254-4209, or visit my website at This is the only workshop I will be hosting this year so hopefully, I will see you there! #Staysharp
