All dog blades, dog scissors and horse blades - leave our premises cutting perfectly.
We hope the following isn't too technical - for those who want to know more, there is lots of information on the other pages.
Clipper Blade Sharpening:
Ok, many clipper blade sharpening companies use lapping machines to sharpen clipper blades - we have been there and done that...at much expense!!! We found that lapping machines give an uneven edge so we switched to a precision hollow grinding machine, which we were delighted to find massively improved our clipper blade sharpening results.
We use three types of clipper blade sharpening plates:
Dog and some horse clipper blades are sharpened on plates, specially taped for hollow grinding. Small blades are originally hollow ground; this means that both the top and bottom blades have a concave arch to them, which enable the teeth to cut.
After sharpening we reset blades to precise factory specifications, alignment and tolerances of tension.
Some large horse clipper blades are sharpened on flat plates.
All ceramic blades are sharpened by hand, using diamond honing plates.
Dog Grooming Scissors:
Dog Grooming scissors are sharpened on the most advanced, high precision equipment in the world,
We sharpen all scissors including left handed and thinning scissors. Most dog grooming scissors have bevelled edges (thick and robust), so we use an amazing machine that makes scissors cut like new.
There are some dog groomers who use convex scissors (razor sharp and extremely fine edges) and we are pleased to tell you, we are experienced with convex scissors and are one of the only sharpening services who can fully convex a pair of scissors to how they were when originally purchased.
