Scissor Sharpening Service

Scissor & Blade sharpening is a highly skilled profession, carried out with precision on specialised machinery sourced from across the globe. Scissors are finished either on polishing machines or by hand often on very expensive stones. A skilled sharpener is a craftsman and will take time and pride in working of your precious equipment. Our sharpener has been trained to service all types of Scissors sold at The Scissor Boutique. Great investment has been made on machinery that is not portable, so this service is not offered at events. Our Sharpener has been trained in the USA and Germany in the techniques required to maintain your collection of Scissors.

Please note speed sharpening is not a service we offer. Allow enough time for our sharpener to do the necessary work and understand you may at times have a wait for this service.

We are here to advise you on sharpening and care of your Scissors and blades. If you have any questions just ask us as we are happy to help you.

The Scissor Boutiques specialist and experienced sharpener Mike Carr offers servicing for all our Scissors and Blades. To book services with Mike please call the office on 01553 611380 or Message our Facebook Page here.

All Sharpening orders must be well packaged and listed and sent to the workshop with appropriate value cover. We cannot except reasonability / liability for orders that are not delivered or that are inadequately packaged. The responsibility remains with the sender at all times.

Please Note: Appointment times for drop off and collection are as any other appointment – at the time given. Late arrival without notice is seen as a missed appointment. Missed appointment charges will be made at Mike’s discretion.
