  • Definite recommendation! I had a specialist pair of scissors (two pairs actually) and not being able to obtain any more, I really needed these sharpening. Although he had to spend a little extra time, this was not a problem to him and his service was very thorough and professional. I am therefore very happy to leave this comment.

  • This is without a doubt the very very best service in a MILLION years and an honest man who is the best ever. My Global knives came back so quickly and so well Homed (Sharpened) it is now a pleasure to use these knives once again. I am a professional Chef, came third in the Olympia in London and only give Praise where deemed and by God you really will not ever beat this Standard of Service. To make me laugh John even put plasters in just incase I cut myself. As I say the best service ever. I really cannot say anymore, but blimey, THE VERY VERY BEST EVER and so so grateful for ever. I will always, always use this Guy Forever. He is amazing!

  • This local business is great, I have used them a couple of times now. The first times was a technical visit due to my scissors being damaged aswell as blunt and they are just as new as the day I got them.
    I would definately recommend the services.

  • John came and sharpened all of our very blunt kitchen knives, kitchen scissors and even and old rusted pair of sheers. The service was great, fast and very cost effective. I never sharpen my kitchen knives and instead just buy new ones - but not now! John was great at taking through the process, as this is a first for me and has various different machines to do the job. I would definitely recommend 'Sharpen Up' to anyone wanting this kind of service.

  • I would defiantly recommend John to others. I have used him a couple of times and have had no problems at all. Really friendly. Love how sharp my scissors was afterwards!

Hair Dressing Scissors

Each pair of scissors will be taken apart, cleaned, sharpened to the correct angle, lubricated, set, all small parts replaced and returned as if they were new.

Built specifically for the sharpening of Professional Hairdressing Scissors the machinery I use grinds with a fine grit diamond wheel which allows for very little metal to be removed. Specific angles can be set to enable the original factory edge of the scissors to be flawlessly followed which means that your scissors will easily accept many more years of professional sharpening.

Once sharpened, the back of the blade or "ride line" is re-established, enabling the blades to effortlessly glide past one another. All the edges are honed and polished to a razor sharp point, then finally the interior of the scissors, parts and mechanisms are cleaned and replaced if necessary, including finger rests, washers and rings.

Last but not least, your scissors are returned you, better than the day you purchased them!

Nicks and dents are ground out with a small fee and specific angles can be requested if you wish to repurpose your blades.

Other Scissors 

Dress Making, Embroidery, Fiscars, Clippers, Nippers, Secateurs, Sheers, Loppers and any other scissor like blade you can think of are all sharpened on the professional scissor machine with a white grinding stone and as the scissors have their angles measured, there is little loss of metal.

Knives

Sharpening Professional kitchen knives involve a process of taking precise measurements of the factory edge and restoring it to it's original angle. These specific measurements allow for only the smallest layer of metal to be removed so that the edge can be re-established with minimal ware to your knife.

As the 'water cooled slow speed' grindstone is in harmony with the physical laws that govern the steel tool, the edge can not overheat and lose its denseness.

All knives are then polished and honed creating a razor sharp edge.

On completion, each knife is tested to ensure that the sharpened blade cuts evenly from base to tip and then finally cleaned.
