We specialize in the sharpening and servicing of hairdresser and stylist scissors
Welcome to the home of Radical Edge.
We are a Johannesburg based company that specialise in the sharpening and servicing of hairdresser / stylist scissors of all kinds whether they are convex, bevelled or serrated and of Japanese or German style. We service all brands both left and right handed.
We are not a mobile service but rather operate from a fully equipped workshop with the latest equipment, similar to that used by scissor manufacturers around the world. Most mobile sharpeners sharpen convex scissors at the wrong angle, destroying the edge which decreases the efficiency of your scissor. We are able to fix this problem for you by re-convexing your scissors to make them like new.
Our factory trained technician is able to produce as good as or often a better edge on your scissors than when they left the factory.
Each pair of scissors entrusted to us is treated with the individual respect for the tools of your trade that they deserve. We set no time limit on the sharpening and servicing of your scissor but rather spend however long is necessary to restore your scissor to its original functionality.We do not grind your scissors, we hone and diamond polish to achieve a razor edge whilst removing the minimal amount of material, then finish on Japanese whet stones (water stones). This technique considerably increases the useable life of your scissors.
