I have a business called Nose to the Grindstone in Portland, Oregon and have been sharpening hair shears and other instruments, tools and knives for over 31 years.
After working for several years in Los Angeles for a pharmaceutical company I by chance ran into a guy that sharpened hair shears. He was a mobile service. We struck up an agreement that I would not work in his territory and I got only about two hours of training. I proceeded to build my own machine and, until the quality of hair shears improved, was pretty happy with my work. A few years later I bought a Twice as Sharp and later added a flat hone.
The second site is a professional makeup line that works well with my salon contacts.
I have been able to increase salon business by helping salons increase their profits....especially in the current econmomy.
I also am a trainer for Wolff Industries' Hira-To Flat Hone Machine.
