Your Guide To Free-Hand Sharpening Beauty Shears
On A Flat Hone Sharpening System

by Bob Treat

From the Introduction:

I wrote this booklet because I couldn't find enough information about how to sharpen my wife's scissors and she wasn't completely happy with shipping her $150 pair of scissors to the manufacturer and then having to wait a couple weeks before they were returned. Sometimes they didn't cut any better than when she sent them! I thought to myself, "I could do a better job than that", I just needed someone to teach me. Training was half way across the Country and I couldn't take time off work. I found a guy that built the type of machine I wanted and also was willing to teach me. I paid him THOUSANDS, got the equipment, and 3 days training. After that, I was on my own.

This booklet is designed to remove the obstacles I ran into. You will benefit because all of the information you need to know about sharpening styling shears is in it. It will help you start a business from scratch, earn a very decent living and give you financial independence. - Bob Treat

Bob Treat is an experienced sharpener who is willing to share what he has learned over the years.

I made this video because I've been there.  I couldn't find enough information about how to sharpen my wife's scissors and she wasn't completely happy with shipping her $150 pair of scissors to the manufacturer and then having to wait a couple weeks before they were returned, only to find they didn't cut any better than when she sent them! I thought to myself,  "I could do a better job than that", I just needed someone to teach me. Training was half way across the Country and I couldn't take time off work. I found a guy that built the type machine I wanted and also was willing to come to me to teach. I paid him THOUSANDS, got the equipment and 2 days training. After that I was on my own. Now you can have a video that you can go back over and over. If you get stumped, you'll have a toll free number to call for support. - Bob Treat
